What I think the Titans are thinking
By Paul Kuharsky
What I think they are thinking at the headquarters of the Tennessee Titans…
We love what we did in the draft. Chance Warmack was second on our entire board and we got him at No. 10, which was a huge value. He will be central to our transformation and help set a tone for us at right guard for years and years. Brian Schwenke could give us a rookie starter beside Warmack at center as well. He’s a very physical guy who will also do a lot for our attitude and identity. Those two were our No. 1 players at their position, as was Justin Hunter. He’ll take the top off defenses, making plays deep downfield and helping create room for other targets and ball-carriers. Blidi Wreh-Wilson could start, and that will put us in a better nickel situation with Alterraun Verner focused on the slot where he has a real knack. Zaviar Gooden gives us another lightning-fast linebacker, which could be something we really feature when opponents are in obvious passing downs. We added some quality size at defensive end in Lavar Edwards. Yes, he can help the rush, but he is also a sturdy run defender who can help ease the workload of our starting ends, who played too many snaps last season.
