Tennessee Titans NFL Draft Odds — Is Offensive Line The Way To Go?

After finishing with a 12-5 record and losing in the divisional round of the playoffs, the Tennessee Titans’ first selection in this week’s NFL Draft will come at pick No. 26. It’s the curse that comes with being a good team but not good enough to win the Super Bowl. Someone else won the Lombardi Trophy, and you don’t get to pick until late in the first round.

Tennessee sportsbooks are not offering odds on a specific player the Titans may draft that late in the draft. However, fans can find Titans NFL draft odds on which position the team’s first-round pick will play.

What Do The Tennessee Titans Need In The Draft?

Tennessee was a solid team in 2021. Had RB Derrick Henry not gone down with a season-ending injury in Week 8, there is no telling how the season could have turned out for the Titans. So, entering the offseason, the Titans did not need to reinvent the wheel. They just needed to augment it, which is what they have done through several personnel moves.

The most notable additions are WR Robert Woods via trade with the Los Angeles Rams and TE Austin Hooper via free agency are the most notable additions. Signing Harold Landry III kept linebacker from becoming a significant need. Re-signing center Ben Jones was also a plus.

However, the Titans had to release Rodger Saffold (guard), Kendall Lamm (tackle), Julio Jones (wide receiver), and Janoris Jenkins (cornerback). D’onta Foreman, who filled in admirably for Henry, decided to sign with the Carolina Panthers.

Jones is not much of a loss because Woods will be an upgrade if he can recover well from the ACL tear that ended his 2021 season. But the Titans could certainly use some help on the offensive line and at defensive back. A team can never have too many edge rushers. Picking up a solid running back would not be a bad idea. The depth chart behind Henry is not too impressive.

What Will The Titans Take With Their First Pick?

Ryan Tannehill has been the guy many people love to hate, but the much-maligned QB has done a good job for the Titans — just not a great one. While they do not need someone to start this season, it would not hurt to pick someone they could groom to take over one day. But if they do, it will probably be with their third-round selection or later.

However, two of the best mock draft analysts in the business Ryan McCrystal and Brendan Donahue have the Titans taking a QB at No. 26. The latest mock draft from Pro Football Focus has the Titans taking an edge rusher.

A QB would not be a terrible pick, but it would not help them win right now. A solid edge rusher could help, but is that an essential need for the Titans? Should they decide to trade back, some analysts have them going with a wide receiver, which is not a terrible idea since an improved passing game could make life easier for Henry.

The best way Tennessee can make the team better this season would be to take an offensive lineman with the 26th pick Thursday night, but since it looks like an obvious choice, that probably means it will not happen.
