Seems likely they are pretty set at TE. Not sure if Firkser and Pruitt both make the roster or if they don’t randomly lose out to a good late round or UDFA TE but both of them are capable backups.

They can't let Pruitt go without getting another inline blocking TE, Pruitt is the best of the bunch in that regard.

I like what Pruitt showed and FWIW Minnesota drafted him ahead of Stephone Diggs in that draft.  Now, if you have an impact TE available to you in rounds 1 or 2 you consider it BPA.

 

Saying that, DL or Edge or Interior OL makes more sense to me.  Or QB is they love one of them.

Stocker gave us some good snaps Last yr... Sad to see em go, but he can be replaced.. 

 

I know many arent a fan of going Te in the first but Idk...

 

Delanie coming off the injury may not be the same player and might start to look his age..

 

I like firkser (in the passing game)..

 

Johnu started to pick it up towards the tail end of the season but who knows what he's gonna look like after the injury, And will that be enough?

 

Pruit gave us some good snaps aswell but can he be consistent..

 

A guy like Hoc can come in and Take the the Number two spot, and arguably the number one if delanie takes a slight step back. Also, I love his blocking ability.. Him and delanie could really be a problem in double tight end sets..

 

Taking Hoc in the first should be under consideration imo, but I still feel D-Line is still a bigger need. I like the D-line deph in this draft over Te.

We're not running "a lot" of 3 TE sets, especially after having a big offseason target be a slot guy

Under Mularkey the Titans ran 3 WRs 45% of the time. Even teams that play a lot of heavy sets still play a lot of 3 WR sets

They don’t need another tight end.  They’re fine with who they have now.  I’m glad they didn’t sign him.

They have bodies.

But bodies don't necessarily add up to production.

If Hock is there at 19 and JRob doesn't bite I will question JRob's judgement going forward.

I don't know much about Pruitt but Smith is a capable player and Firkser doesn't drop anything.  Their needs are far more pressing on the edge than they are at TE.

That has nothing to do with who we draft.  We should not just take an edge guy at #19 just because that is the bigger need.  No way in hell.  I agree, if the right edge guy is there he is probably a Titan.  If you have a TE and a pass rusher close to equally rated of course you take the pass rusher.  But we aren't going to reach for some dud with a legit blue chip TE on the board.  That would be stupid.  Now if we do take an edge guy we can take a TE later when the value is reasonable.  Again, Smith is coming off a knee injury.  Not sure how much he will be hampered by it if at all.  But with his injury, Walker's injury and age (luckily Walker has had time to recover) TE might be a bigger need than people think.  This may be Walker's last year as well.  You draft now for a couple of years down the road anyway.

They have a top 5 defense, and the 29th ranked offense.

They have either injury recoveries or practice squad refugees at TE, and one of those IRs is about to be 35.

I believe in Delanie, but it took every other TE on the roster combined to equal his 2017 production in 2018, so his time is limited and no one would blame him if he hangs it up after 2019.

I see it as a push in terms of need.  So I say take the better player of the two positions.

Do you think their pass rush as presently constituted is sufficient?  I don't.  I think it's their one glaring weakness and needs to be addressed.

 

There are a multitude of reasons for why the defense outperformed the offense but I feel better about the offense than the defense right now.  Particularly after the two upgrades.

I'd hope more balls would be going to WR's given the investments in Davis and Humphries plus the late season emergence of Taylor and a solid 4th in Sharpe.

I'm still leery of the right side of the OL until proven otherwise but really it comes down to whether Mariota plays to begin with and actually plays consistently well.
