2006 Tennessee Titans NFL Mock Draft Picks
Linebacker: Tennessee lost Brad Kassell in free agency to the New York Jets and Rocky Boiman was also lost to the Dallas Cowboys. The Titans did pick up David Thorton from Indianapolis but help at the middle position and overall depth for the linebacking core would be nice.
Offensive Tackle: The Titans Brad Hopkins was released for salary cap purposes which was probably good move as he was on the decline. Michael Ross is probably better suited on the left side so Tennessee will probably be looking for a right tackle in the draft.
Quarterback: Both Steve McNair and Bill Volek are suitable starting quarterbacks but neither one can stay healthy, and McNair is on his last legs. 3rd string QB Matt Mauck is no Matt Leinart.
Tennessee as we stated above has some QB issues and they are in a great position to draft the future QB of their franchise Matt Lienart. Only problem is other teams are interested in the former USC QB and possibly could trade up to the number 2 position and snag him away.
If this happens look for Tennessee to focus on the offensive tackle position and grab Virginia's D'Brickashaw Ferguson. There is the possibility that they could pass on Ferguson and still draft Texas' Vince Young or trade down and snag Vandy QB Jay Cutler but this all stems on the Saints dealing away their 2nd overall pick.
The problem is the Titans need 3 studs in the first 2 rounds but only have 2 picks to do so. Trading down to get an extra pick sounds like the right move allowing Tennessee to get a quarterback, middle linebacker, and offensive tackle on day 1.
Depending on how this plays out the Titans don't have a 3rd round pick (Dealt to Buffalo for running back Travis Henry) so the secondary and any other holes will have to be filled on the second day.
