After finishing 9-7 and narrowly missing out on the playoffs for the second time in three seasons, it is essential that the Titans have a productive off-season to give them the extra boost they so desperately need.
The Titans have several positions that need to be addressed throughout free agency and the draft, most notably pass rusher, interior offensive line, interior defensive line, and wide receiver.
The Senior Bowl is major opportunity that the league and fans alike have to watch players compete outside of their college systems and under the guidance of current NFL head coaches.
Here are five players that Titans fans should keep an eye out for while watching the Senior Bowl:
Montez Sweat, DE/OLB, Miss. St.
Don’t be surprised if Montez Sweat becomes a hot name for Titans in mock drafts. Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller already mocked Sweat to the Titans in the first round.
In Tennessee, Sweat would likely move to OLB and pair with Harold Landry to give the Titans a young, dynamic duo to rush the two prolific passers of the AFC South (Andrew Luck and Deshaun Watson).
In his final season at Miss. St. Sweat compiled 53 total tackles, 14.5 tackles for loss, and 12 sacks in 13 games.
Sweat was also named All-SEC First Team after his dominant season for the Bulldogs.
