Offensive Line Options for Tennessee Titans in 2024 NFL Draft

    Seven of the most drafted players to the Tennessee Titans by users of PFN’s Mock Draft Simulator are offensive linemen. Which ones are fans favoring?

    The Tennessee Titans had one of the worst offensive lines in the country in 2023, and fans are doing everything they can to try and fix the problem for their franchise.

    Users of PFN’s Mock Draft Simulator are intensely selecting offensive linemen for the Titans throughout their NFL Draft simulations. Not only are users picking offensive linemen in Round 1, but they are also doing so with later-round picks.

    Most Drafted Players by Tennessee Titans Users of the Mock Draft Simulator

    Unsurprisingly, Titans users are overwhelmingly selecting offensive linemen in the Mock Draft Simulator. The link between Tennessee and addressing the offensive line through the draft has been a trend throughout the offseason, and users of the simulator agree.

    Offensive linemen dominate the 10 most-selected prospects by the Tennessee faithful, for good reason. They sit at the bottom of PFN’s offensive line rankings and have question marks at several positions. Seven of the 10 most drafted players to the Titans are on the offensive line. However, users also like to pick pass catchers.

    LSU WR Malik Nabers, South Carolina WR Xavier Legette, and Georgia TE Brock Bowers are the three non-offensive linemen to make the top 10 list. It is understandable why fans would consider them. DeAndre Hopkins is out of contract at the end of the 2024 season, and both Nabers and Bowers are two of the top players in the draft.

    Additionally, Xavier Legette is a popular Day 2 selection and could be paired with one of the top offensive linemen who users pick in Round 1.

    Olumuyiwa Fashanu, OT, Penn State

    Olu Fashanu is the most frequent target for Titans fans using the Mock Draft Simulator. While he has slipped down some boards, Tennessee will be confident they could turn the Penn State OT into something special.

    Bill Callahan moved to the Titans when his son was named head coach and is considered one of the best offensive line coaches in the game. Fashanu has the explosive traits, natural leverage, and coordination that the staff will like. The Penn State tackle, however, needs to work on his strength, and Callahan will be able to work with him and increase his power profile.

    Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame

    Joe Alt is the second-most picked player by users and is widely considered the top offensive tackle prospect in the 2024 NFL Draft. The fact he is second on this list may suggest that Alt is being drafted earlier than the No. 7 in most simulations.

    The Notre Dame OT is a polished prospect with a gigantic frame, at 6’9” and 321 pounds, hulking strength, and technical refinement. A burly blocker, Alt covers ground easily and his floor is super-high entering the NFL.

    Jackson Powers-Johnson, OL, Oregon

    Jackson Powers-Johnson is the fourth-most selected player by fans. Seventh overall is rich for the interior offensive linemen. However, in trade-back scenarios or on Day 2, it is easy to see why users are selecting him.

    Powers-Johnson is a center prospect who can also play guard. While the Titans signed Lloyd Cushenberry in free agency – giving him a four-year $50 million contract — there isn’t sufficient depth, and the Oregon IOL will be one of their best five players up front. A versatile option that can overwhelm with power and strength, Powers-Johnson is a favorite for Tennessee.

    JC Latham, OT, Alabama

    JC Latham is fifth on the list of the most draft players to the Titans and projects best as a right tackle. While the focus has been on the left side of the offensive line, Tennessee can upgrade at either guard spot or right tackle.

    While he doesn’t have the technical refinement of Alt or Fashanu, Latham is loaded with traits. The Alabama OT is an absolute unit at 6’6” and 335 pounds and moves well for his size. If anyone can unlock Latham’s potential, Callahan can, and the strength, size, and functional athleticism are enough to buy into.

    Jordan Morgan, OL, Arizona

    Jordan Morgan is a versatile offensive lineman who could play tackle or guard at the next level. The Arizona OT is the sixth most drafted player by Titans Mock Draft Simulator users and is likely to be most selected early in Round 2.

    With sub 33” arms, some are projecting Morgan to kick inside in the NFL. Wherever the Titans project him, his natural balance, burst, and smooth athleticism give him a strong foundation on which to start early on.

    Sedrick Van Pran, C, Georgia

    Sedrick Van Pran is the next on the list of Tennessee targets and is another center prospect. Despite Cushenberry’s signing, this interest hints that Titans fans don’t view him as the long-term option at center or would like to take one to develop in a reasonably good class.

    The Georgia center is an enormously experienced prospect, who is very intelligent and a keen processor. What Van Pran lacks in athletic traits, he can make up for in strength and football IQ.

    Drake Nugent, C, Michigan

    Drake Nugent is the 10th-most selected player to the Titans in simulations and is a day-three prospect. However, Tennessee fans see something in the Michigan center for so many users to be selecting him late in drafts.

    While he has potential, Nugent would be a backup as a rookie, and the selection makes sense late in the draft.

    The former Wolverine needs to add to his strength profile but has enough experience, short-area quickness, and intelligence to sit behind Cushenberry on the depth chart.
