What will the Titans biggest change be in 2017?

I bet you already know!

NFL: Tennessee Titans at Kansas City Chiefs Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Anyone who has been paying attention to the Titans at all this year knows what their biggest weakness is- corner back. That is absolutely where they go with one of their first two picks in the draft, and I wouldn’t be shocked if they used both of the first two picks on corners.

The NFL writers over at ESPN did a post where they highlighted the one biggest change for each team in 2017. Paul Kuharsky wrote this about the Titans:

The Titans will have two new starting cornerbacks. Defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau might not love relying on rookies at the spot, but Tennessee needs an influx of better players who can cover outside. Maybe 2016 fifth-rounder LeShaun Sims can earn a spot. But the Titans would be well-served to spend draft and free-agency resources to revamp the position to such a degree that the team has two newcomers in the lineup.

The Titans went the value route at corner in free agency last offseason. Will they spend big on a guy this year? Their could potentially be guys like Stephon Gilmore, A.J. Bouye and Trumaine Johnson on the market.

I doubt they don’t go that route. Jon Robinson has said he wants to build a team through the draft. This is a deep corner class where he could potentially get two starters and have them for cheap for a few years.

What do you think? Will they make a splash at corner this year?
