With Derrick Henry running the show, the Tennessee Titans have been a postseason contender for the past couple of years. But as we’ve seen this past season, they live and die by King Henry’s blunt sword. In turn, the Titans would be wise to add the necessary pieces on both sides of the ball at the draft this month if they want to remain in the conversation of the AFC’s real Super Bowl contenders.
Nitrobetting is ready to equip its bettors with the latest news, futures NFL odds, and special features for the duration of the 2022 NFL offseason. This time, let’s examine the best first-round prospects that the Tennessee Titans may strongly consider picking up at the upcoming 2022 NFL Draft.
Top 2022 NFL Draft First-Round Picks for the Tennessee Titans
Who Will the #Titans Pick in the 2022 NFL Draft? 🤔— Tennessee Titans (@Titans) April 11, 2022
Mock Draft Monday Roundup 6.0 ⤵️
David Ojabo – Michigan (EDGE)
Harold Landry needs a solid pass-rushing partner on the opposite end of the defensive line, thus making Michigan’s David Ojabo a prospect that Tennessee should have its sights set on. Ojabo doesn’t carry the same promise as other rookie edge rushers at the draft such as Kayvon Thibodeaux or Travon Walker, but the Titans should still find the 6-foot-3 D-lineman on the board with the 26th-overall pick. Ojabo generated 37 QB pressures over his last 10 games for John Harbaugh’s Wolverines in 2021.
Zion Johnson – Boston College (G)
The loss of guard Roger Saffold to the Bills this offseason hurts, so the Titans also need to plug the hole left by Saffold on the O-line. Enter Zion Johnson, who allowed just six QB pressures in his final year at Boston College. Johnson’s best performance last season came against the vaunted Clemson defense after allowing just one pressure in 46 pass-blocking snaps, and is a relatively solid run-blocker who could pave running lanes for Henry immediately.
Kenyon Green – Texas A&M (G)
Johnson might not be on the board by the time the Titans get to their first-round pick, which means they may have to reach for another guard from the rookie pool. That being said, Texas A&M’s Kenyon Green could be a surprise first-round selection given how thin the guard position is at the draft.The 323-pound Green does not have the mobility that NFL linemen possess just yet, but he’s played every O-line position for the Aggies outside of center to display his versatility. Green allowed just three QB pressures over his last seven starts at TAMU.
