With the AFC South becoming a much more intensely contested division, the Titans needed to draft players that fill great needs to help them become more competitive.
With Chris Johnson having his worst career season as a starter and the offensive line looking more like an infirmary, the Titans played it smart during the draft and took players that filled needs at certain positions.
Here is a run down on each player the Titans selected at this year's NFL Draft.
Chance Warmack, OG Alabama (10th)
The first selection by the Titans at the 10th overall selection, the big-bellied guard from Alabama. After signing Andy Levitre during free agency, the Titans needed to fill the void at RG and have now solidified an offensive unit the had Chris Johnson fighting for yards behind the line of scrimmage.
This was the smartest move the Titans could have made. Whilst taking a prime-time receiver like Cordarrelle Patterson is something many fans wanted, getting their million dollar baby in CJ2k productive again will reap more rewards than a new receiver would have.
With Chris Johnson and Jake Locker protected by a completely re-made offensive line, there will be no excuses from head coach Mike Munchak and the aforementioned players for failure, this truly is a make or break season for everyone involved.
Justin Hunter, WR Tennessee (34th)
This was somewhat of a strange decision. Whilst Hunter had fallen to the second and many had him predicted to be a first-round talent, the Titans trade up at the beginning of the second to get their man.
With the Titans' receiving corps having issues with the dropsies last season, Hunter was a strange addition. When you try to improve you receivers, you tend to draft people who have solid hands, Hunter is rated by NFL expert Mike Mayock as "having poor hands and lacking physicality".
The Titans pulled the trigger on Tyler Bray's No. 2 option, however if Kenny Britt can keep his nose clean, Hunter could again prove to be a solid No. 2 option for Jake Locker. His presence won't necessarily relieve pressure on CJ, however it might improve the passing game.
Blidi Wreh-Wilson, CB Connecticut (70th)
The Titans had a need to get bigger and more physical in the secondary, this drafting is the definition of that. Wreh-Wilson is a Richard Sherman type of corner who is at his best when pressing at the line of scrimmage.
Blidi is the type of new era corner every team needs to have; he is quick and displays great recovery speed, but at 6'1", 195 pounds, he is a long receiver with incredible reach to get up and make a play on the ball. Verner was burned all too often last season, Blidi has far better tackling mechanics than Verner and can push him for a starting spot opposite McCourty.
With the Titans' No. 2 corner currently on a contract season, Wilson can also be a great insurance policy if Verner departs in 2014. The Titans' track record at not re-signing defensive backs leads many to believe the Wreh-Wilson is the heir apparent.
Zaviar Gooden, OLB Missouri (97th)
Just like Zach Brown last draft, Gooden is potentially the quickest linebacker of the entire draft class. Gooden is a little short at 6'1", 234 pounds, but his side to side speed is of great appeal in today's dink and dunk NFL.
Mike Mayock said, "He's got the speed of a corner. I don't think he has great instincts, but when he sees it, there isn't a faster linebacker. If he learns how to take on a block, he'll be a home run."
Positive line of thought, whilst Gooden does lack instincts his recovery speed means he is able to chase down players from any angle, a positive for a side that gave up the most points in NFL history last season.
Gooden can be another addition that could see more game time than most expect. After the departure of Will Witherspoon this offseason, Gooden can come and fill in during situational downs, he also has the potential to be an extra safety in the box on five receiver sets with his speed. Gooden also possess's the assets of an elite Will linebacker.
Brian Schwenke, C California (107th)
With many people talking about the increased performance of Fernando Velasco last season, the Titans made another smart decision in drafting a day one starter at the center position in Brian Schwenke.
Schwenke is a player who is physical in the trenches and can give the offensive line that wounded dog mentality -- don't stop until you can't move anymore.
Schwenke is a high-motor-type of lineman and can be important to the Titans up front.
Schwenke will be a big unit to try and pass for defensive lineman, he stands firm at 6'3", 314 pounds and is a strong player, lifting 225 pounds at the combine 31 times. He will come in and put more fight in the trenches for the Titans' offensive line that has undergone a face lift this offseason.
Lavar Edwards, DE LSU (142nd)
Edwards was one of eight LSU defensive players taken this draft and is rated as Mel Kiper Jr's favorite defensive player taken. He has a three-down motor and shows the push to get off the line effectively to get into the backfield.
Working strictly as a rotational player in 2012, Edwards was able to account for 4.5 sacks and 7.5 tackles for loss. These are solid numbers for a player on a defensive line that included Barkevious Mingo and Sam Montgomery. Edwards will be able to push former first round selection Derrick Morgan and last season standout Kamerion Wimbley.
Edwards will be a solid contributor on special teams and Munchak has already state that he may see game time this season on certain downs. Looks like a depth drafting but has the potential to grow into a bigger role in Tennessee.
Khalid Wooten, CB Nevada (202nd)
The Titans continued to add defensive players to their roster by drafting the Nevada standout Khalid Wooten. Whilst Wooten will only see game time if he makes it past training camp, he may be looking at a year on the practice squad.
In his final campaign for Nevada Wooten contributed 53 tackles, intercepted 2 passes (taking one back for a touchdown), and broke up 14 passes. Wooten can be a solid option for the Titans as a nickel package corner. He can make tackles and has the quick feet to break on plays early.
Wooten may make the roster, but having to fight it out with Tommie Campbell and Coty Sensabaugh for game time, the practice squad looks like his final destination barring a team injury.
Daimion Stafford, SS Nebraska (248th)
Stafford was the final selection of the Tennessee Titans for the 2013 NFL Draft. Whilst the Titans waited quite some time to address their concerns at safety, Stafford is a player who can compete for a roster spot.
Stafford is a player with good straight line speed and is thick enough to wrap up the ball carrier. He has a lot of similar traits to Yeremiah Bell.
Stafford has shown a willingness to chase the running back, unfortunately, like Michael Griffin, he too can bite all too often on the play action - a bad trait to have when you line up against a play-action-heavy Texans twice a season.
Overall he can make the roster, he has better intangibles than that of Robert Johnson and can get more physical in the secondary. Stafford's closing speed is something that may see him leap up the depth chart to challenge a slower George Wilson for starting time.
The Tennessee Titans have made some outstanding additions through both free agency and the draft. The complete overhaul of the interior offensive line is something to keep an eye, Chris Johnson has some new friends up front and could be a scary tailback for defense's once again.
He now has better fantasy value over last season as well.
Jake Locker has a new outside weapon in Justin Hunter and better protection up front provided they can stay healthy this season, something they definitely were not able to do last season.
The Titans are certainly a side to watch in a division that looks to be wide open. Remember, when the Titans first played the Texans last season, although losing, they also held them to 3 points over 3 quarters and Arian Foster to less than 60 all-purpose yards.
The Colts look like the show stoppers in this division, if the Titans can get one up on them this season, it could be the most contested division in the NFL - minus the Jaguars of course.
