The Tennessee Titans made it back to the playoffs this past season and did so without star running back Derrick Henry for much of the second half. Henry returned in time for the playoff, but they would end up falling to the Cincinnati Bengals in the Divisional Round.
Still, this is one of the best teams in football, and with pick No. 26 overall, they should look to continue to improve on the defensive side of the ball. They took a big step forward on defense last year, and by adding Trent McDuffie late in the first round this April, their improvements should continue.
While Tom Brady is retired, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be looking to replace a legend at quarterback this offseason, the Bucs should still be a solid team in 2022. They have good coaching, excellent defensive players, and enough playmakers to help whichever quarterback steps in for Brady this offseason.
At pick No. 27, I like the Buccaneers to add another weapon to their offense, bringing in Ohio State star Garrett Wilson, a standout wide receiver. Wilson has the size and ability to take the lid off a defense at any time and would be an excellent addition alongside Chris Godwin and Mike Evans.
Pick No. 28 belongs to the Green Bay Packers, who could be making a change at quarterback this offseason as well. Like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Pack would be replacing a legend in Aaron Rodgers, though there is no official word on that just yet.
This late in round one, the Packers could go several different ways, but I like them to bring in a defensive tackle. Perrion Winfrey is someone I believe will rise in a big way during the draft season, and he fills a hole on a defensive line that could be losing a bunch of talent to free agency this offseason
