The Titans have no discernable holes in their starting lineup. You can pencil in a starter at every position.
So why do the Titans need to continue signing free agents? It’s a matter of simple math, really. The Titans need more players than they have draft picks available and I doubt if Tennessee will be granted any compensatory picks.
As it stands now, the Titans have only six selections for this April’s draft. By my count, quite a few more players are needed to round out the roster.
CB: 2 or 3
LB: 1 or 2
DT: 0 or 1
OL: 1 or 2
WR 2 or 3
QB: 0 or 1
RB: 0 or 1
PR: 0 or 1
S/T 6 to 14
Here’s how I arrived at those numbers.
Although Mike Heimerdinger will give the bulk of the playing time to his best two or three wideouts, the Titans will probably carry five
. They currently have 2½ in Justin Gage, Nate Washington and Lavelle Hawkins.
QB: A free agent to compete with Vince Young
for the backup spot is a strong possibility. Or a late draft pick could be used to groom a potential replacement for Young or take over as the #2 after Kerry Collins retires.
What are your thoughts on how the Titans replenish their depth?
