Tennessee Titans. Devin Lloyd. 26. player. 35. . Linebacker

It seems like the Tennessee Titans are a team that is going to be in the mix year in and year out, and that has a lot to do with their head coach. Mike Vrabel has done an outstanding job in Tennessee, making the Titans a perennial playoff contender, though it is time for them to take the next step forward.

Looking ahead, they need to continue to improve their defense, and Devin Lloyd this late in the first round would be a perfect fit for the Titans. He has three-down ability, plays with incredible passion, and would have a head coach who knows the NFL battles on defense very well.

27. player. 48. . Wide Receiver. Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Drake London

Looking ahead to the 2022 NFL season, it is clear that changes are coming in Tampa Bay, as they look to move on from the two-year Tom Brady era. That era brought them a Super Bowl title, and another playoff berth, so you have to think TB12’s run in Tampa Bay was a successful one.

As they turn the page, they are letting a bunch of their big-name free agents walk, but one of them is not Chris Godwin. With him returning, the Bucs should look to add even more talent to the position group, and Drake London is a tall wideout who should be a red-zone weapon as a rookie in 2022.

28. player. 49. . Edge. Green Bay Packers. Cameron Thomas

The Green Bay Packers got the job done this past week, as they locked Aaron Rodgers back up to a long-term deal, and put the franchise tag on star wideout Davante Adams. That is two huge moves for the success of this franchise in the short, and long term, and now they can turn their attention to free agency and the NFL Draft.

Here, at pick No. 28 overall, they bolster the pass rush, especially with some of their more explosive edge rushers slated to hit free agency. Cameron Thomas from San Diego State is a name rocketing up draft boards and would be a cheaper fix coming off the edge in Green Bay in 2022 and beyond.
