With the No. 39 overall selection in the 2024 NFL Mocks midseason mock draft, the Titans select Ja'Tavion Sanders, TE, Texas. Surrounding Will Levis with weapons and easing the Derek Henry workload is the goal in the 2024 draft for the Titans; Sanders fits right in and serves that purpose.
At 6'4" and 245 lbs, Ja'Tavion Sanders is an impressive tight end who has already earned All-Big-12 First Team and John Mackey Award semi-finalist honors. Sanders displays a knack for making plays in the vertical passing game and is equally as adept at turning short throws into significant gains with his run-after-catch ability. He can line up in various spots on the field, ranging from an in-line tight end to a slot wide receiver.
Despite his immense talent as a receiver, Sanders still has room to grow as a blocker. He does an excellent job of cutting off the backside of a run, but his push on the front side is often not sustained.
Overall, Sanders is a dynamic receiving threat who can win vertically, convert short throws into big plays, and create matchup problems for his opponents.
