Tennessee Titans Pre Free Agency 2022 Seven Round Mock Draft

Tennessee Titans Pre Free Agency 2022 Seven Round Mock Draft

by March 8, 2022 0 comments

The Tennessee Titans entered the 2022 playoffs as the top seed in the AFC and a favorite to win the Super Bowl. Unfortunately, Tennessee lost to the Cincinnati Bengals in the divisional round, which meant their season was over, and their offseason preparation began earlier than expected. The Titans enter the offseason with needs at the receiver, tight end, center, right tackle, pass-rusher, linebacker, and cornerback positions. While some are bigger than others, Tennessee will likely follow the best player available approach in the draft. The Titans have seven picks in the draft but are without second and seventh-round selections due to the Julio Jones and Isaiah Wilson trades. 

To help with this mock draft, I used The Draft Network’s mock draft simulator.

Round 1, Pick 26: Chris Olave, WR, Ohio State 

The receiver class in this draft class is another great one for the third year in a row. Olave would’ve been a first-round choice last year, and following his sub 4.4 40-yard dash time at the combine, he locks himself into the first round. While Tennessee may have bigger needs, Olave falls to them here. The Titans scoop him up to pair with A.J. Brown for the long run while being the third option behind Jones if Jones stays healthy, that is.

Round 3, Pick 90: Drake Jackson, EDGE, USC 

A position group that may be the deepest in the class is at edge rusher. Jackson would typically be a first or second-round selection in most drafts but falls to the third round in this class. He is a polarizing prospect, and the Titans may need to find a replacement for Harold Landry, as he is an impending free agent. Jackson fits well in Tennessee’s 3-4 scheme and would be a value pick at this point in the draft. 

Round 4, Pick 129: Cam Jurgens, IOL, Nebraska 

With Ben Jones heading to free agency, the Titans don’t have any backup plans for the starting spot next season. It is unlikely that Tyler Linderbaum will make it to their selection in the first round, so finding a value on day two or early on day three is most likely the role they’ll take if they opt to take a player in the draft to replace him. Jurgens is a phenomenal value in the fourth round and is a perfect fit in Tennessee’s scheme. He posted one of the fastest times of any offensive lineman at the combine and made waves for his beef jerky as well. 

Round 4, Pick 142: Dare Rosenthal, OT, Kentucky 

The right tackle position has been a mess for the Titans since Jack Conklin left in free agency to go to the Cleveland Browns. Since then, the Titans whiffed on the Isaiah Wilson selection, and for some reason, Dillon Radunz, a second-round selection from last year at that spot. The Wildcats left tackle shined at the combine, posting the fastest time of any offensive lineman. Rosenthal would make for an interesting developmental or even starting option for the Titans at their right tackle spot on day three of the draft. 

Round 5, Pick 168: Daniel Bellinger, TE, San Diego State 

Tennessee desperately needs reinforcements at their tight end spot. They have four players at the position who are impending free agents, and it would be wise to re-sign one of them, add a high-level player at the position via free agency, and then add another in the draft. The uber-athletic tight end from San Diego State posted the second-highest RAS rating of any tight end at the Senior Bowl and is one of the best run-blocking tight ends in the class. While Bellinger didn’t get as many looks in the passing games as others, his athleticism is a pivotal sign that he can succeed in that regard at the next level. 

Round 6, Pick 202: Kalon Barnes, CB, Baylor 

Speaking of a dominant combine performance, Barnes posted the second-fastest time in combine history with a 4.23. The former four-star recruit is a speed demon and offers a developmental prospect for the Titans, who need help at the cornerback spot. Barnes will be an immediate factor on special teams and had four return touchdowns in his senior year in high school. He would be a key contributor on special teams during his rookie season, along with a developmental prospect. 

Round 6, Pick 218: Luke Goedeke, OT, Central Michigan 

Finally, the Titans attack the tackle position again. Goedeke paired with Bernhard Raimann at Central Michigan to form one of the best tackle duos in all of college football. Goedeke could go much higher than this, and the Titans take advantage of him still being here in the sixth round. He would likely compete for a backup spot along the offensive line in his rookie year.
