The Titans defense was ranked 12th in the NFL giving up an average of 20.7 points per game. Their defense overall was not as strong as some may think it was, as their passing defense was ranked 24th in the league, and the desperate need at the cornerback position was apparent. The rushing defense faired better in 2019, as the Titans were ranked 12th in the league, allowing 104.5 yards per game to opposing ground games. I think it is an easy decision for Tennessee in round one by drafting a cornerback. CB Xavier McKinney (Alabama) or CB C.J. Henderson (Florida) would be perfect fits for the Titans. 

The Titans offense struggled at the beginning of the year under QB Marcus Mariota. When the Titans made the move to start QB Ryan Tannehill, the offense improved significantly. By the end of the season, the Titans had the 10th ranked offense in terms of points scored per game (25.1). RB Derrick Henry was an absolute monster in the postseason and towards the end of the regular season when Tennessee played its most important games. Upsetting the Patriots and Ravens task is not easy at all, and the timely offense of the Titans is what got it done. Of course, they did not blow anyone away, but their defense and offense did just enough each week to be successful, even without the amount of talent other teams in the AFC may have had. Tennesee should look to beef up their offensive line to ensure Henry’s running ability can continue long-term. A possible second-rounder could be OT Lucas Niang (TCU). 

Overall, Tennessee obviously does not have the talent on paper that scares too many teams. However, they were coached fantastically by Mike Vrabel, and they did just enough to have a very successful season. Out of the four teams that made the AFC and NFC Championship games, the Titans are the most likely to not return in 2020-21, but improvements are possible.
