The Tennessee Titans are one of the rising teams in the NFL this year. Over the years, the Titans have struggled to develop and draft quality talent for a variety of reasons. Titans fans are hoping this is the year that the team turns things around. With all of the changes in the NFL this year, now is the time to take advantage of some of the weakness in the AFC. The AFC South is one of the worst divisions in the NFL, and if the Titans have a great offseason, they could be the odds-on favorite to win the division for the 2017 regular season.

Draft needs

There are a lot of needs that the Titans have for the draft.

Without a doubt, one of the biggest needs for the team is in the secondary. The Titans have a terrible secondary, and the good news for them is that there are a lot of options in this area in the draft. The Tennessee Volunteers have a great young corner coming out in Cameron Sutton. Many draft experts think that he will be available in the 2nd or 3rd round for the Titans to consider. The Titans have a top ten overall pick from the Rams who traded up last year to drafter Jared Goff.

First round picks

The Titans have a number of quality picks this year. Many people expect that they will trade down with one of their picks this year. Not only do they have that flexibility, but the general manager has proven that he is willing to gamble in the draft when he sees fit.

Last year, he drafted Conklin when there were other higher rated tackles on the board. However, the GM knew that he liked what he saw in this player. Over time, a lot of Titans fans think that Jon Robinson will help turn around the team with his excellent drafting. Drafting is not as easy as it looks, and a lot of people are ready to see what he has for the 2017 draft.

No matter how many picks they have, the Titans need to figure out a way to get more talent on their team. This is especially true in positions like the secondary where there is a major gap between where they are and where they need to be to win the division and compete in the playoffs.
