This team needs help at the O-Line, the safety and cornerback position, and they need to add depth to their D-line.
The O-line was atrocious last season and that could wind up being the first area the Titans target in the draft, but there is a fair chance this team switches gears and rolls the dice on an elite corner for a few reasons.
The number one guy in Tenessee right now Jason McCourty and rightfully so—he was easily the best corner on the field for the Tennessee Titans in 2012.
After McCourty, though, there’s some reason for question.
Aterraun Verner did a very serviceable job for the Tennessee Titans, but really trailed off in the end. The problem here is the guy is more suited as a slot corner, instead of an outside cover man.
The only other considerable option to play the outside—opposite of McCourty—is Tommie Campbell, who does have talent but has yet to show reliability.
In addition to the players named, remember that this team really wanted an elite corner last year but lost their chances on the top TWO corners in that draft—I don’t see that happening again.
I believe the Tennessee Titans pull the trigger on Alabama’s Dee Milliner.
With the addition of defensive coordinator mastermind Gregg Williams, the Tennessee Titans are expected to become much more aggressive, and in order to accomplish this, the Titans need another aggressive corner.
Dee Milliner is absolutely perfect.
The Seattle Seahawks showed the tremendous value in owning cornerbacks who are 6 foot and over—Dee Milliner is 6’1”, 198 pounds.
Williams crafts his defenses around ball-hawking regardless of the position—Milliner has been compared to Bears ball-hawk Charles Tillman.
Look, the bottom line is really the fact that Milliner is the perfect addition for the Tennessee Titans.
Not only does he possess all the necessary skills to immediately start, he also allows the Titans to move their players around.
The addition of someone like Milliner could afford Tennessee to move Aterraun Verner to the slot—his natural position.
After Milliner, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Tennessee Titans set their sights on a short-safety to replace Jordan Babineaux who is expected to be released.
Thank god, he was one of the worst safeties in all of football last season.
I think it would be a wonderful thing if the Tennessee Titans had the opportunity to grab Florida International’s Jonathan Cyprien. He’s borderline first-round talent currently being projected as a third or fourth rounder.
