The Tennessee Titans have some fixing to do along the offensive line, and can add more to the front seven as well. It’s a Mike Vrabel special in this mock.

The collapse during the back half of the 2022 season is a tough one to swallow for the Tennessee Titans. You could point back to a lot of things that caused the snowball, but back to the 2022 draft when A.J. Brown was traded was certainly a fracture point. Mike Vrabel hated it, and the slower progression of Treylon Burks probably strained the relationship even further. Jon Robinson was fired midseason, Ryan Tannehill got hurt, and asking a third-string quarterback who signed in December was the final straw.

Now, where do the Titans go? It’s unlikely that Vrabel wants to blow it up and rebuild. The defense is very good. David Long is a free agent, Denico Autry and Jeffery Simmons are free agents in 2024, and there isn’t a lot of offensive line spots secured.

Vrabel and company need to right the ship here. With a new GM, let’s get it going with this seven-round Tennessee Titans mock draft, featuring a lot of Vrabel-type players.

Round 1, 11th Overall: Peter Skoronski, OT, Northwestern

How good of a start is this? The Tennessee Titans have to figure out the offensive line. Taylor Lewan might not return for 2023. Nicholas Petit-Frere and Dillon Radunz haven’t panned out much, and the Isaiah Wilson pick was a disaster.

So how about going safe early at the tackle position? Peter Skoronski is as safe as it gets in what is essentially playing the lottery. Skoronski’s technique as a pass blocker is excellent. He is great at establishing leverage with well-placed strikes, and can reset his hands to regain leverage. His anchor and functional strength are great. In the run game, Skoronski can uproot defensive linemen with down blocks, and isn’t a bad puller in space. Forget about the arm length. Give him a chance to be the left tackle.
