Tennessee Titans NFL draft picks 2021!
Round 1, No. 22 overall: Caleb Farley, CB, Virginia Tech
The Titans felt the opportunity was too good to pass up just like when they selected Jeffery Simmons in the first round of the 2019 draft. A healthy Farley, who opted out of the 2020 season due to the pandemic, will be able to line up on the outside and be trusted in man coverage. He is more than willing as a tackler and can create turnovers. Adding Farley allows the Titans to use second-year cornerback Kristian Fulton on the inside as a nickel corner in sub packages. Farley finished the 2019 season with four interceptions and 12 passes defended.
Round 2, No. 53 overall: Dillon Radunz, OT, North Dakota State
Radunz played left tackle at North Dakota State but will convert to right tackle for the Titans. He isn't an instant plug-and-play starter so the Titans will have a legitimate competition on their hands with veterans Ty Sambrailo or Kendall Lamm in training camp. Radunz comes from a "small" school but the Bison ran an NFL-style offense with blocking schemes that should translate well to the Titans.
Round 3, No. 92 overall: Monty Rice, LB, Georgia
The Titans re-signed Jayon Brown to a deal that is essentially a one-year contract and are yet to pick up the fifth-year option for Rashaan Evans. So the need for depth at inside linebacker was there but could have been addressed later. Rice did show that he has some speed by running a 4.57 second time in the 40-yard dash at Georgia. He was used in coverage against running backs which should allow him to be used in spot duty for the Titans.
Round 3, No. 100 overall: Elijah Molden, CB, Washington
He is a versatile player who can be featured as a nickel corner and as a single high safety. He has NFL bloodlines -- his father is former New Orleans Saints cornerback Alex Molden. Elijah collected five interceptions and three forced fumbles in the last two seasons. The 5-foot-10, 190-pound defensive back is a more than willing tackler as shown by his 79 tackles (49 solo) in 2019 and 26 tackles in four games last season. Picking Molden gives the Titans the luxury to wait for first-round pick Caleb Farley to get ready to play.
Round 4, No. 109 overall: Dez Fitzpatrick, WR, Louisville
Although he's not the fastest receiver, Fitzpatrick is a legitimate deep threat (19.4 yards per catch last season). His 6-foot-2 size and ball skills allow him to play above the rim as well.
Round 4, No. 135 overall: Rashad Weaver, OLB/DE, Pittsburgh
He'll give the Titans a player who can stand up and rush the passer off the edge or put his hand in the dirt as a down lineman. Weaver isn't a twitchy type of pass-rusher but his strength and length (6-foot-4) help him find his way to the quarterback. The Titans waited to get an edge defender and Weaver was one of the better ones available on the board.
Round 6, No. 205 overall: Racey McMath, WR, LSU
McMath submitted a 4.34 second time in the 40-yard dash at LSU's pro day. It's clear that McMath possesses the necessary physical traits to be a solid pro. But he needs to improve his releases off the line of scrimmage and as a route runner. While fellow LSU WRs Justin Jefferson, Ja'Marr Chase, and Terrace Marshall Jr. developed into star players, McMath was unable to take the next step. Maybe Titans WR coach Rob Moore can help unlock his potential.
Round 6, No. 215 overall: Brady Breeze, DB, Oregon
The 6-foot, 190-pound defensive back doesn't possess outstanding size or play speed. He relied on effort to make plays at Oregon. Breeze isn't likely to be more than a depth player on defense for the Titans. This pick is somewhat confusing given how players such as slot WR Cade Johnson and OLB Quincy Roche were still on the board.
