Draft Tek is an interesting website that I like to look at this time of year. They have a series of correspondent for each team that inputs the needs of the team. They then run a computer program that generates a mock draft for the entire 7-round mock.

Here is what they have for the Titans currently:

Round 1 (Pick #1): Laremy Tunisl, OT, Ole Miss

The Titans have invested two of their last three First Round draft picks in the offensive line, adding Chance Warmack and Taylor Lewan. But unfortunately, there hasn't been much else deeply laid in stone, other than the signing of Andy LeVitre, who they traded to Atlanta before last season. The team has added a lot of potential firepower to the offense over the past couple seasons,with Marcus Mariota, Kendall Wright, Dorial Green-Beckham, and recently DeMarco Murray. 2016 will rest significantly on offensive line play, so it is hard to imagine them not giving a long look at Tunsil. The team has recently said they're open to trade this pick and with Cleveland sitting at the second pick looking hard at Carson Wentz, it is possible a trade could happen. However, teams may balk, because the asking price will likely be too high.

Round 2 (Pick #33): Leonard Floyd, OLB, UGA

Tennessee has a little over $14.5 million tied into starting outside linebackers Brian Orakpo and Derrick Morgan for 2016 and $17 million per year for the next two years after. That's a lot of money to pay a combo that only generated 11.5 sacks in 2015. So while Tennessee may be stuck with the contracts for a few years, they can definitely add some depth to the position to help generate more pressure on opposing quarterbacks. Leonard Floyd is a player loaded with potential. His production may not be what teams are looking for (10 sacks in past two seasons), but he was also splitting time with several talented edge rushers. At 6'4," 244, Floyd had a strong combine and has all the tools necessary to succeed. He won't make an immediate impact on every down, but has the skillset to generate pressure in special situations.

Round 3 (Pick #64):Jalen Mills, FS, LSU
Round 4 (Pick #114): Ken Crawley, CB, Colorado
Round 5 (Pick #140): Vincent Valentine, DT, Nebraska
Round 6 (Pick #177): Charone Peake, WR, Clemson
Round 7 (Pick #222): Temarrick Hemingway, TE, South Carolina St.
