With the 2019 NFL Draft behind us, we have a pretty good idea of what the Tennessee Titans’ roster will look like this upcoming season.
And after the draft, the Titans’ roster looks much improved — at least according to Pro Football Focus.
PFF recently revealed the most improved team in each division after the draft. The Titans were their pick in the AFC South.
Here’s what they had to say about Tennessee and the improvements they made during the draft:
Every single player the Titans selected was ranked higher on the PFF draft board than where they were selected in the draft. Mississippi State defensive tackle Jeffrey Simmons was a top-10 player on our board that they got at 19. We wouldn’t have batted an eye if Ole Miss wideout A.J. Brown was actually the selection for the Titans at 19 and instead they secured our number two wide receiver with the 51st overall pick. They capped it off with one of the steals of the draft, nabbing Iowa safety Amani Hooker (PFF’s 44th ranked player) midway through the fourth round at 116 overall.
For me, the biggest takeaway from PFF’s commentary on the Titans’ draft are their thoughts on Tennessee’s second round pick, wide receiver A.J. Brown.
They’re basically saying that Jon Robinson nabbed a top 20 talent with the No. 51 overall pick. That’s some incredible value for the Titans.
It takes years to truly grade a draft class. But based on initial reviews, it appears that Tennessee’s 2019 draft class will set them up to have success for many seasons to come.
You can’t ask for much more if you’re a Titans fan.
