Josh Norris and Evan Silva of Roto World are working their way through NFL teams looking at draft needs. Yesterday they took a look at the Tennessee Titans. It is no surprise that th3 top 3 needs they listed were pass rusher, offensive line and inside linebacker. I would switch inside linebacker and offensive line, but my top 3 is the same.
Norris has the Titans taking Sam Hubbard, OLB, Ohio State in the first round. His comments:
The fit makes so much sense. A head coach with a defensive line coaching background at Ohio State, selecting an athletic Buckeye pass rusher. Hubbard very good agility drills, a very good sign for a pass rusher. He needs to learn how to create space to maximize that bend and flexibility.
He had the Titans taking another OLB in round 2. This time it was Rasheem Green, USC. Here is what he had to say about this:
Green is…. Green. Raw. There are skills that can turn into talent, but the ceiling for interior disruption is worth taking a shot on. Green is one of the youngest defensive linemen in this class.
I LOVE the idea of the Titans taking pass rushers in each of the first 2 rounds. We have been talking about how the Titans need a pass rusher, but if we are being honest, they need more than one. They have no depth behind Brian Orakpo and Derrick Morgan in 2018, but there is chance that neither guy is with the team in 2019. They don’t want to enter that season with only a 2nd-year guy and needing to get another guy in the first round.
Norris had the rest of the draft playing out like this:
3rd round- Alex Cappa, G, Humboldt St.
4th round- Oren Burks, LB, Vanderbilt
5th round- Javon Wims, WR, Georgia
6th round- Sean Welsh, C, Iowa
Would you be happy with the Titans draft playing out this way?
