The Tennessee Titans saw their successful 2017 season come to an end with a playoff loss to the New England Patriots, but this team is set up for continued success in the future. However, for them to reach their full potential, they have a few needs they should address in the NFL Draft. As such, here are four players the Titans are targeting in the first round:
1) Harold Landry, OLB/DE, Boston College Eagles
The Titans struggled to get consistent pressure on opposing quarterbacks this past season and both Brian Orakpo and Derrick Morgan aren't getting any younger. Kevin Dodd has been a massive bust to this point in his career, and with a number of good pass rushers in the draft, look for Tennessee to use their first-round pick to address that need. That takes us to Landry, who produced at a high level in college and has a good deal of upside.
2) Jaire Alexander, CB, Louisville Cardinals
Tennessee made a concerted effort last offseason to upgrade their secondary by drafting Adroee Jackson in the first round and signing Logan Ryan in free agency. However, they could still use an upgrade at nickel corner with LeShaun Sims not having the breakout season many expected and Brice McCain entering free agency. That could cause them to look in Alexander's direction.
3) Isaiah Wynn, OG, Georgia Bulldogs
The Titans have both tackle positions set with Taylor Lewan and Jack Conklin while Ben Jones is solid at center. However, things are far less certain at guard. Wynn was one of the keys to Georgia's dominant rushing attack and should start right away at the NFL level. He's also big enough to play tackle if need be.

4) Taven Bryan, DT, Florida Gators
Tennessee needs to start finding some long-term answers along an aging defensive line, and while edge rusher is their top priority, a player with the athleticism and versatility of Bryan could peak their interest. At 6-foot-3 and 290 pounds, he may be best as a 3-4 end but can play anywhere thanks to his strength and quickness.Back to the Tennessee Titans Newsfeed
