NFL: 2017 NFL Draft Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Todd McShay wrote up 5 teams that he thinks are the most improved after the 2017 NFL Draft (In$ider). The Titans, of course, are one of the 5 teams that made his list. Here is part of what he had to say about the Titans:

The Titans entered this draft with Rishard Matthews and 2016 fifth-rounder Tajae Sharpe Nos. 1 and 2 on the wide receiver depth chart. Both are nice complementary pieces, but GM Jon Robinson knew he needed to find someone who could grow into a bona fide No. 1 wideout in the NFL. He got that in Corey Davis, who's a crisp route runner and shows the ability to make contested catches in traffic. Robinson didn't stop there, snagging two other explosive pass-catchers for QB Marcus Mariota: WR Taywan Taylor and TE Jonnu Smith. Taylor fills a hole at slot receiver, while Smith will complement fellow tight end Delanie Walker nicely in the passing game.

We thought Jon Robinson was going to spend this offseason building the defense. Instead he spent it adding weapons for Marcus Mariota and making special teams better...but he also did enough on defense where they will be better.

One thing is for sure, the Titans are going to be really fun to watch on offense this year!
