Biggest holes on the Tennessee Titans offense

Which areas need to be looked at closely in the weeks leading up to the draft.

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The Tennessee Titans have pretty much gotten all they can out of free agency at this point and while some tires are being kicked, I don't imagine that any significant additions are going to be made. With most of the pieces set, it is time to consider where the Titans need the most help on offense.

1. Right Tackle

Michael Oher was good enough to not be completely exploited when the Ravens beat the 49ers in the Super Bowl two years ago, so his decline may be over-exaggerated. Having said that, he still is likely a step down from Stewart, and although he will likely be more consistent and draw less drive-ending penalties he will have his hands full this year.

Possible solutions: Morgan Moses, Virginia/Jawuan James, Tennessee both in Day 3

2. Running back

Having Shonn Greene, Dexter McCluster and Jackie Battle isn't necessarily a bad thing, but I don't expect the opening day roster to have those three as the only running backs on the field. The Titans need some young legs without the wear and tear, but they should know that getting a running back is good, but it getting him at the right price is better. They will need to find someone that doesn't put a drain on their draft resources, AKA a late round player.

Possible solutions: Storm Johnson, UCF/Rajion Neal, Tennessee Day 3

3. Quarterback

Jake Locker has his pros and his cons, but honestly when he is on the field the Titans are a better team. Watch the early part of last season as Locker was slowly developing and when he finally hit his stride in the NYJ game. However, the obvious issue is his health. Will the Titans give him one more year, or will they bring in someone in round one to replace him. I think that all depends on how the top-10 shakes out, but come this time next year QB will be the biggest need for the Titans and it isn't like Webster to let a future hole in the roster go unaddressed.

Possible solutions: Teddy Bridgewater, Lousiville on Day 1/David Fales, San Jose State on Day 3.
