Tennessee Titans Post Free Agency 2022 Seven Round Mock Draft

Tennessee Titans Post Free Agency 2022 Seven Round Mock Draft

by April 4, 2022 0 comments

The Titans have come short of their expectations for the last couple of seasons. However, with a draft class widely regarded as being the deepest in a few years, they can get a few great players. With only two picks in the top 90, the team will have to pick great players on day three of the draft. At the same time, the Titans have a good team around Derrick Henry and Ryan Tannehill but need a few pieces. Furthermore, Jon Robinson will have to be at his best to come out with a great draft.

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

Round 1, Pick 26: Treylon Burks, WR, Arkansas

With the Titans still searching for another receiver to pair with A.J. Brown, they thought Julio Jones could be it. However, after a failed year of having Jones, it cost the team a second-round pick this year. While the team brought in Robert Woods for a sixth-round pick, he is coming off a torn ACL. At the same time, the team needs more than Brown and Woods to have a great supporting cast around Tannehill. With Woods having a chance not to be 100 percent before the start of the season, Burks can step in. With Todd Downing as the offensive coordinator, he can develop unique ways to use Burks. The former Razorback is a guy who can play in the slot or the boundary and be effective in all sorts of ways.

Round 3, Pick 90: Phidarian Mathis, DL, Alabama

The Titans need more help on the interior line, especially with run-stopping. Mathis might be one of the best pure nose tackles in this draft and can be a big-time player for the Titans. However, Mathis and Teair Tart could be a great pairing and make a great rotation together. Last year once Tart got out of the game, the run defense suffered. With Mathis in the rotation with Tart, Da’Shawn Hand would allow the Titans a lot more production from that position. Furthermore, with Mathis being a better pure pass rusher than Tart, he would serve as an upgrade on third down.

Round 4, Pick 131: Akayleb Evans, CB, Missouri

The Titans need another corner to go alongside Caleb Farley and Kristian Fulton. With a shocking lack of depth from the corner room, Evans can become a strong rotation player. However, the best attribute Evans brings is the ability to play in the slot or at the boundary. While the Titans desperately need an upgrade and depth from the slot, Evans provides it. The Titans won’t have a below-average secondary with Evans providing much-needed depth.

Round 4, Pick 143: Alex Wright, EDGE, UAB

Wright is a player in this draft who can be described as a must-have prospect. Coming in at 6’7″ and 270 pounds, he has tremendous upside as a rotational pass rush specialist. With a larger frame and excellent length, he is also someone who can become a run defender and every-down player. Coming from UAB, he didn’t have a statistically great career. However, he has the tools to succeed but needs time to refine his technique. Wright climbed the draft board from a seventh-round selection to a potential fourth-round pick.

Round 5, Pick 169: Damone Clark, LB, LSU

With depth being a slight concern at linebacker for the Titans, Clark could help. However, with a stellar college career at LSU, he has a few limitations, mostly in his pass coverage ability. At the same time, he is a fast and physical mentality that allows him to be great at run contain. While Clark will need to develop more to be better at coverage, he can be in a rotation that sees him be successful. Furthermore, he can immediately be impactful as a rookie, which the team needs.

Round 6, Pick 204: Amare Barno, EDGE, Virginia Tech

Barno is an exciting prospect in this year’s draft. He can be stolen in the sixth round with great size and agility paired with great footwork. However, Barno doesn’t stand out enough in the loaded defensive line class. Barno will have to spend a lot of time working on his mechanics to find success. At the same time, Barno is a player who can make a difference if he figures out a few things.

Round 7, Pick 219: D’Vonte Price, RB, Florida International

With the last pick for the Titans, the team takes a shiny new backup running back. With Derrick Henry looking the same after his foot injury, the Titans need a better backup. Price is someone who has it all and can be great for the Titans as a change of pace back. Price and Henry can become a great combo with Henry’s toughness in running and Price’s elusiveness. With not many players available to consider filling a need with a talent like Price is a huge positive.
