Tennessee Titans stand guard, EDGE in Touchdown Wire’s 3-round simulation draft
Touchdown Wire’s latest 2022 NFL Mock Draft has the Tennessee Titans taking a guard and rusher with their top two picks.
In the first round of the last fictional project of Mark Schofield from TouchdownWirethe Titans take Boston College goaltender Zion Johnson, who is among my favorite interior offensive linemen in this draft.
Johnson would be a great long-term solution at left guard with the departure of Rodger Saffold, and he could contribute right away, which is important for a winning team like the Titans that has a major question mark in that position.
As for Tennessee’s third-round pick (the Titans don’t have a second-round pick thanks to the trade of Julio Jones), Schofield’s selection is less than ideal, as he ties the pitcher to assists from Cincinnati Myjai Sanders to the Titans.
It’s not a big blow for Sanders, but the Titans shouldn’t make that pick when the team has a much bigger need for wide receiver, tight end and offensive tackle.
In fact, it wouldn’t be at all surprising if the Titans gave up on taking an EDGE altogether, with the team having Bud Dupree, Harold Landry, Ola Adeniyi and 2021 fourth-round pick Rashad Weaver on the roster.
If the Titans are smart, this will be an offensive draft that will attack most if not all of the aforementioned positions before even thinking about picking a player for a young, very good, and mostly slated for 2022 defense.
