NFL Draft Team Needs: Tennessee Titans

1. Cornerback: Tennessee pretty much addressed every major need they had in free agency, with the exception of Cornerback. The CB situation in Tennessee isn't too bad, but it certainly isn't their strength. Verner will also be a free agent next season, so they may need a potential replacement for him. Cornerback could be addressed as high as their first round selection, especially if a player like Milliner falls to them.

2. Offensive Guard: Andy Levitre was a great signing, but they could use some help at the other guard position. Helping Johnson get back do dominate form has to be a top priority for them. Guard is another position that will probably be addressed very early on. Warmack and Cooper are both great options and at least one of them should be available at that point in the draft.

3. Defensive End: Tennessee has a pretty solid duo in Wimbley and Morgan, but they have no talent behind them. They would be in big trouble if one of them was injured. With a solid pass rushing class this season, it would be wise to use a mid round selection on one. A third solid DE is crucial to a good pass rush.

4. Tight End: Delanie Walker was brought in to replace Cook, but who knows how good he'll be as the premier tight end. It would be wise for Tennessee to bring in another TE to pair with Walker just in case he can't handle the lead TE duties on his own.

5. Quarterback: Despite being fifth on their needs list, the Quarterback position may be the biggest problem for the Titans this year. Locker didn't show any progression last season, and I'm doubting his ability to be a franchise quarterback. The signing of Fitzpatrick as the backup probably means Tennessee won't consider another QB early, but later in the draft they should take a chance on a young signal caller, especially if one falls to them. Locker has another year to prove himself, but this might be his last year as the starter if he doesn't start improving quick.
