If the season ended today, the Tennessee Titans would pick twice in the first 11 selections in April. They should definitely upgrade their defense with their first selection, but with their second pick in the first round, they should give Marcus Mariota a weapon on the outside. Mariota is one of the better young quarterbacks in football, and he needs a star to rely on in the passing game.

Tajae Sharpe has been a great find for the Titans, as the rookie has put together some solid games in his first season in the league. However, he is a WR2 at best, and cannot be relied upon to carry a team through the air. Adding a player like Clemson’s Mike Williams would give Mariota the game-changing wide receiver he needs to take the next step in his development.

Tennessee is not that far off, and they play in arguably the worst division in all of football. If they can add two solid pieces to an already decent roster, they should be able to challenge the Indianapolis Colts and Houston Texans in the AFC South. Williams is an incredible talent at the wide receiver position, and with solid running backs in place, would give the Titans one of the more deep offensive units in the AFC.
