Titans 2021 Draft Targets:

Draft Notes:

  • The Titans must get another quality receiver to start opposite of budding superstar A.J. Brown in order to truly realize this offense’s full firepower.
  • The team still needs to get another starting-caliber cornerback as the team is currently slated to start former second-round pick Kristian Fulton and recent free-agent signing, Kevin Johnson
  • The Titans still need to continue to improve the overall depth behind Dupree and Landry. It would be wise for them to try and hit on one or two of the talented pass rushers in this class
  • The Titans could also look to draft a tight end in this draft. While Firkser and Swaim are good players, they could use some extra help in filling the void left by Jonu Smith’s departure
  •  The Titans really need to add some depth to the Saftey position through the draft

  • WR
  • TE
  • Offensive Line Depth
