Tennessee Titans mock draft: Bold move secures 2 first-round selections, promising potential stars.

“Bold” is the foremost descriptor for the Tennessee Titans’ offseason, so let’s adopt that same mentality for our NFL mock draft.

The Titans hold the No. 7 pick in the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft, scheduled for April 25. However, beyond that, their draft capital is limited. They’re lacking a third-round pick due to last year’s trade to acquire quarterback Will Levis, leaving them with only two selections in the top 100. Having three seventh-round picks hardly compensates for this shortage.

Considering the Titans’ recent acquisitions of Calvin Ridley, L’Jarius Sneed, Lloyd Cushenberry, Tony Pollard, and others this spring, along with General Manager Ran Carthon’s demonstrated readiness to trade up in the draft to invest in potential, let’s adopt an aggressive strategy for this week’s Titans mock draft. We’ll aim to address the team’s two most significant needs before the start of Day 2 of the draft.

1. Chicago Bears: Selecting QB Caleb Williams

Continuing their tradition, the Chicago Bears opt for the USC talent at No. 1, a choice that surprises no one.

2. Washington Commanders: Drafting QB Jayden Daniels

Under the guidance of new offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury, the Commanders choose to build around another dual-threat Heisman Trophy winner, this time opting for the LSU quarterback who showcased remarkable prowess both in the air and on the ground last season.

3. Minnesota Vikings (via trade): Securing QB Drake Maye

In a strategic move, the Vikings bundle their two first-round picks (No. 11 and No. 23) along with future selections to climb to the No. 3 spot, targeting Maye from UNC. Despite limited college experience, Maye’s prototypical build and considerable upside make him an attractive prospect for Minnesota’s quarterback needs.

4. Arizona Cardinals: Picking WR Marvin Harrison Jr.

Amidst the allure of newer prospects, the Cardinals stay true to Harrison as the initial non-quarterback selection. Recognizing his established talent and consistent performance, they prioritize him in the draft.

5. Los Angeles Chargers: Selecting WR Malik Nabers

Despite the option to bolster their offensive line, the Chargers opt to address their depleted receiving corps by choosing Nabers, a necessary addition to maintain their passing game threat.

6. New York Giants: Choosing WR Rome Odunze

Resisting the urge to draft a quarterback, the Giants instead provide Daniel Jones with a genuine top receiver, a move aimed at enhancing his offensive options.

7. Tennessee Titans: Adding OT Joe Alt

The Titans prioritize their offensive line needs by selecting Alt from Notre Dame, acknowledging his status as the premier offensive lineman in the draft. Alt’s proficiency in both pass protection and run blocking is crucial for shoring up the Titans’ offensive front.

8. Atlanta Falcons: Drafting Edge Dallas Turner

Recognizing their perennial need for edge defenders, the Falcons secure Turner to bolster their pass rush, a strategic move under new coach Raheem Morris.

9. Denver Broncos (via trade): Acquiring QB J.J. McCarthy

Moving up three spots, the Broncos ensure they secure their desired quarterback ahead of the Patriots. McCarthy’s cerebral approach and potential, despite limited exposure at Michigan, align with coach Sean Payton’s vision for the team.

10. New York Jets: Selecting TE Brock Bowers

The Jets invest in Bowers, a unique tight end prospect with exceptional receiving and rushing abilities, offering a dynamic weapon for quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

11. New England Patriots (via trade): Choosing OT Olu Fashanu

Opting to strengthen their offensive line rather than reach for a quarterback, the Patriots secure Fashanu, a high-upside tackle prospect renowned for his pass protection skills.

In a trade with the Broncos, the Bears acquire Verse, a coveted edge rusher, adding depth to their defensive lineup.

13. Las Vegas Raiders: Selecting CB Quinyon Mitchell

The Raiders prioritize their secondary by selecting Mitchell, the top defensive back in the draft, marking a meteoric rise for the Toledo prospect.

14. New Orleans Saints: Adding OT Taliese Fuaga

Choosing to fortify their offensive line, the Saints select Fuaga, a versatile lineman capable of contributing at multiple positions, enhancing their front line.

15. Indianapolis Colts: Drafting CB Terrion Arnold

After missing out on L’Jarius Sneed, the Colts opt for Arnold, a highly sought-after cornerback from Alabama, known for his ball-hawking abilities.

16. Seattle Seahawks: Choosing Edge Laiatu Latu

Despite injury concerns, Latu’s impressive performance at UCLA makes him an enticing prospect for the Seahawks, who aim to bolster their pass rush.

17. Jacksonville Jaguars: Picking WR Brian Thomas Jr.

Tasked with replacing Calvin Ridley, the Jaguars select Thomas, a prolific deep threat who led college football in touchdowns last season.

18. Cincinnati Bengals: Adding OT J.C. Latham

Prioritizing protection for Joe Burrow, the Bengals select Latham, a versatile lineman capable of playing multiple positions along the offensive front.

19. Los Angeles Rams: Selecting DT Byron Murphy

Inheriting the formidable task of succeeding Aaron Donald, Murphy joins the Rams to bolster their defensive line, contributing to both run defense and interior pass rush.

Continuing their tradition of drafting Georgia tackles, the Steelers opt for Mims, a powerful blocker who anchored the Bulldogs’ offensive line.

21. Miami Dolphins: Adding OL Troy Fautanu

Addressing their need for offensive line help, the Dolphins select Fautanu, a versatile lineman capable of thriving in various positions along the line.

22. Philadelphia Eagles: Drafting CB Kool-Aid McKinstry

Seeking to strengthen their secondary, the Eagles choose McKinstry, a shutdown corner with elite athleticism and special teams prowess.

23. New England Patriots (via trade): Selecting QB Bo Nix

Using their acquired pick from the Vikings, the Patriots finally draft a quarterback in Nix, banking on his efficiency in the short and intermediate passing game.

24. Dallas Cowboys: Choosing OT Tyler Guyton

Tasked with filling Tyron Smith’s shoes, Guyton joins the Cowboys as a potential successor on the left side of the offensive line.

25. Green Bay Packers: Selecting CB Nate Wiggins

Capitalizing on Wiggins’ talent falling down the board, the Packers secure the skilled cornerback, adding depth to their secondary.

26. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Picking WR Keon Coleman

Looking towards the future, the Buccaneers select Coleman, a physical receiver with similar traits to Mike Evans, providing insurance for their receiving corps.

27. Arizona Cardinals: Adding DT Johnny Newton

Doubling up on Big Ten talents, the Cardinals select Newton to fortify their defensive front, improving both run defense and interior pass rush.
