In the offseason, the Tennessee Titans didn't make many moves. However, sometimes this isn't always a bad thing meaning they want to keep their own or they just don't have that many needs to address.
Considering they didn't resign cornerback Alterraun Verner this offseason, I'm guessing it's that the Tennessee Titans feel as if they don't have many needs and I tend to agree.
First of all they now have a great coaching staff with the combination of defensive coordinator Ray Horton who, to my surprise, has not gotten a head coaching offer already, and head coach Ken Wizenhunt who turned around Phillip Rivers last season.
While Jake Locker couldn't stay healthy again last season, when he did play Locker showed that he could play well and win, giving me hope for Locker this season especially under Wizenhunt.
1. Cornerback or Safety
After losing cornerback Alterraun Verner to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Titans could look to replace him with someone like Justin Gilbert out of Oklahoma State.
Ray Horton, former defensive coordinator of the Arizona Cardinals, really fit Patrick Peterson to his press man defense and I expect him to want to try and do the same with a similar type player in Gilbert.
Justin Gilbert is already crazy talented like Peterson, just a little more raw. However, under a defensive minded genius like Horton, Gilbert could be a steal if he went to the Titans at eleven.
Also, while safety isn't the biggest need for the Titans, they could use an upgrade next to Michael Griffin and they recently brought in safeties Haha Clinton-Dix and Calvin Pryor to visits so this could very well be the pick at eleven.
2. Offensive Tackle or Quarterback
Offensive tackle is a need for the future for Tennessee as Michael Roos and David Stewart aren't getting any younger. However, they could wait on this need later in draft but I'm putting it on here just in case they do believe someone like Taylor Lewan out of Michigan is their guy.
Also, I did the same for quarterback. It's not crazy to believe that if one of the top three quarterbacks are there at 11 that the Titans won't pass on them. Personally, I wouldn't because I'm still a Locker believer but you never know.
What I Would Do
If I am the Tennessee Titans and cornerback Justin Gilbert is on the board, I'm without a doubt taking him. With a pretty good front seven already in place, corner seems to be the biggest hole after the Verner loss and Gilbert could be Patrick Peterson.
Also, when your defensive coordinator is Ray Horton who likes to dial up blitzes, you kind of need guys to hold up in coverage especially when you play Andre Johnson, Reggie Wayne, and potentially Justin Blackmon twice a year.
However, if the Detroit Lions stay put at ten, I think Gilbert is their guy but with rumors floating around about them trading up for Sammy Watkins, Justin Gilbert could very well be there at 11. However, if he isn't I believe the Titans take one of the two safeties.
