Tennessee Titans 2020 NFL Draft Class Recap

The Titans were one of the more surprising teams of last season. 

Tennessee got off to a rocky start but finished the season strong after benching quarterback Marcus Mariota in favor of Ryan Tannehill. He found new life with the Titans and won NFL Comeback Player of the Year. 

Now, hoping for another promising season, Tennessee needed to address positional holes at right tackle, edge rusher and cornerback. The Titans quickly found top talent in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Tennessee's 2020 draft picks:

Best Pick: Kristian Fulton

Fulton is one of the biggest steals of the draft and slipped all the way to the back end of the second round. He was part of one of the best college football teams in recent memory and a catalyst for a secondary that included another second-round pick in Grant Delpit. Fulton seemed to be the forgotten player amongst a very talented defense, but he held his own throughout LSU’s national championship run. He lacks ball production and certain qualities teams seek but still has many dominant characteristics. Fulton was a high-value pick at No. 61.

Biggest Surprise: Isaiah Wilson

Andrew Thomas, Mekhi Becton, Jedrick Wills and Tristan Wirfs were dubbed the Big 4 and stole the conversion during the pre-draft process; but the second tier of offensive tackles was just as interesting. Josh Jones and Wilson were at the forefront of that group. Wilson going in the first round came as a surprise to most people. 

Day 3 Sleeper: Larrell Murchison

Murchison quietly had one of the better Senior Bowl performances of any interior defender not named Javon Kinlaw. Murchison played himself into Day 3 contention. He was selected in the fifth round and joins a group that lacked depth. Murchison has a chance to provide help immediately.

X-Factor: Isaiah Wilson

The Titans’ best pick is also their biggest X-factor. After losing Jack Conklin in free agency, Tennessee had a massive hole to fill. Wilson can step in right away as a starter. After declaring for the draft after his redshirt sophomore season, Wilson’s climb from January to April was unlike any other offensive tackle prospect we saw this year.

Summary

The Titans are welcoming back Derrick Henry and newly extended Tannehill to help keep the offensive core intact. Their defense lost a key piece in Jurrell Casey and will have some ground to make up along the interior, but key additions through free agency and now the draft help alleviate some of those growing pains.
