What 10 mock drafts are saying about Tennessee Titans at No. 11 overall

What 10 mock drafts are saying about Tennessee Titans at No. 11 overall

The Tennessee Titans are just outside the top 10 in the first round of 2023 NFL Draft in April. And, two months out, it’s mock draft season.

As expected, many recent mocks are slotting an offensive lineman for the Titans at No. 11. But there are some other interesting choices, including a tight end, an SEC quarterback and a pass rusher.

Maybe the only large need missing is a wide receiver, though that would mean two first round receivers in two seasons. That being said, the need is there.

The draft is about two months away, and the combine is incoming. Here’s a roundup of the week’s mock drafts:

Tennessee Titans NFL Mock Draft roundup

Anthony Richardson, QB, Florida

Josh Edwards, CBSSports.com

Edwards on the pick: “(Ryan Tannehill) is entering the final year of his contract so the Titans need to consider its long-term options.”

Dalton Kincaid, TE, Utah

Chad Reuter, NFL.com

Reuter on the pick: “If coach Mike Vrabel and new GM Ran Carthon decide to stick with the veteran in 2023, then they find another receiving tight end to make his life easier.”

Paris Johnson Jr., OT, Ohio State

Todd McShay, ESPN.com

McShay on the pick: “Johnson would help keep Ryan Tannehill — or whoever ends up being the quarterback over the next few seasons — upright while also opening up lanes for Derrick Henry and the run game.”

Ryan Wilson, CBSSports.com

Wilson on the pick: “Paris Johnson, who played left tackle for the Buckeyes this season, also has experience on the interior; either way, he is a Day 1 starter.”

Chris Trapasso, CBSSports.com

Trapasso on the pick: “Johnson is a large, athletic, well-balanced blocker equally as impressive paving lanes for the run game as he is protecting the quarterback.”

Peter Skoronski, OT, Northwestern

Luke Easterling, Draft Wire

Easterling on the pick: “This offense isn’t going anywhere without some serious upgrades in the trenches. Skoronski might be smaller than most teams would like a tackle to be, but regardless of where he lines up, he’s a Day 1 starter.”

Kyle Stackpole, CBSSports.com

Stackpole on the pick: “He’ll be solid wherever he lines up in Tennessee.”

Lance Zierlein, NFL.com

Zierlein on the pick: “Selected as the Big Ten’s best offensive lineman in 2022, he can help right away, but he might need to bump inside to guard to compensate for his short arms.”

Lukas Van Ness, EDGE, Iowa

Michael Renner, Pro Football Focus

Renner on the pick: “The Titans love to create havoc with their line via stunts and slants, and Van Ness is a true havoc creator.”

Joey Porter Jr., CB, Penn State

Cynthia Frelund, NFL.com

Frelund on the pick: “I was surprised to see that my model didn’t select an offensive lineman or even a wide receiver here.” (Frelund utilizes a player model designed to maximize wins for the next season.)
