    First, let's assume for arguments sake that we pick at 20th (or later).

    2 approaches to this question of who to take. One, QB is not a need via the draft (Mariota succeeds or Tannehill does) so take best player for the Titans at a non-qb position. Or two, QB is our biggest need...but we pick at #20 (trade way up and give up tons of high quality picks to get in the top 5 or take one in the 2nd round and cross your fingers).

    Some of my thoughts...guys on the bubble who need to prove their worth, on last year of contract, or are old and will need an heir. Mariota, Tannehill, Delanie, Conklin, Jones, Woodyard, Logan, Wake...

    Thoughts?

    Jerry Juedy might be the best player in the draft next year.

    Yeah he's excellent, but we have cd, brown and hump. Don't see us taking another wr in round 1. But surely fun to watch!

    FSU have anyone worth a 1st or 2nd round grade?

    No idea yet on the 2020 prospects but the TE position keeps my interest lately.

    I was hoping for OJ Howard in 2017 and they took Adoree one pick ahead instead - which I would say was the right move especially because of the position it fills.

    To a lesser-extent : Hayden Hurst in 2018.

    This year I was hoping for Noah Fant - who goes one pick after ours - but once again I think the Titans got it right with Jeffery - time will tell.

    Delanie has 2 solid years left in him most likely and we can’t say for sure if we have his “clone or replacement” in Jonnu Smith. He’s shown flashes but this offense has been so vanilla especially with its receiving targets it’s hard to judge him still ...

    If we do pick late in the 2020 draft - I’ll stick to the “draft a TE early campaign.”

    Marvin Wilson is probably a top-45 player at DT if he comes out as a junior.

    Stanford Samuels III might have a chance to be a second round pick as a CB. He played out of position at FS last year and he's moving back to CB. He has ideal height/weigh/speed, but he needs to put it all together.

    Cam Akers has a chance if the offensive line can be average, but he needs to show he's a RB and not a converted option QB. It seemed like he was figuring things out about midway through his freshman season. Then things were just so bad up front in 2018 that he reverted back to old habits of trying to break everything outside. He'll be a true junior next year and given the position he's probably gone one way or another.



    Tamorrion Terry is probably the best deep threat in the country. 35 receptions for 744 yards and 8 TDs on an absolute trash offense last year. He was the only bright spot. He needs to become a complete receiver though and not just Devery Henderson. He'll be a rs-sophomore, so I'm not sure he leaves early.

    Tend to think we go OLB unless Mary craps the bed...

    Too early and a lot of variables come into play....Will Henry re-sign? Will Mary perform? Is Walker back to full strength? What about Logan Ryan? Time will tell, but it’s way too early imo.

    Will Henry continue forward or was the end of last season a fluke? Will Mariota finish the season? Will Walker be the same?

    We, in all honesty, don't know these answers but these will impact that year's draft.

    this will absolutely be the move if Jonnu doesnt show something this year. I believe kyle rudolph is a FA though, i'd be fine with picking him up.
