After winning the AFC South for three straight seasons, the Tennessee Titans suffered their second-straight losing campaign. It’s the first time since 2014-2015 that they’ve been below .500 for two consecutive years, and it saw head coach Mike Vrabel get fired, with Brian Callahan replacing him.

How Many Picks Do the Titans Have in 2024?
The Titans have seven picks in the 2024 NFL Draft.
In addition to owning four of their picks, Tennessee has added three more picks from two trades.
They added a fifth-rounder from the Philadelphia Eagles when they moved star safety Kevin Byard at the 2023 trade deadline. Seventh-round picks from the Carolina Panthers and Philadelphia were acquired for Dennis Daley and Ugo Amadi, respectively.
Tennessee gave up their 2024 third-round selection in a multi-pick deal with the Arizona Cardinals, allowing them to land picks that ended up being Will Levis and Tyjae Spears. Their fifth-round pick went to Carolina for Daley, and their seventh-round pick was traded for Tyree Gillespie.
Who Did the Titans Draft in 2023?
It’s unusual for a team’s second-round pick to overshadow their first-rounder, but the Titans accomplished this feat. Levis was expected to be a top pick in the 2023 NFL Draft for most of the offseason, but he unexpectedly fell to Tennessee in Round 2.
Levis showed flashes, leaving fans hopeful this new coaching staff can get the most out of him. He threw for 1,808 yards and eight touchdowns in nine games.
The selection of offensive lineman Peter Skoronski in the first round may not have been an exciting move, but the Titans needed to improve their unit. Skoronski played the second-most snaps on the team and allowed five sacks on the season.
Tennessee took steps to improve their struggling offense by bolstering their running back depth behind Derrick Henry. The addition of speedy RB Spears out of Tulane provided an intriguing complement to Henry. Spears handled much of the team’s receiving duties and showed off his explosiveness.
The Titans did not pick in the fourth round last year and waited almost 60 picks after moving up for Spears until their next selection. The team selected Cincinnati tight end Josh Whyle with their fifth-round pick. Whyle caught one touchdown as a rookie.
Their sixth-round selection, Maryland OT Jaelyn Duncan, saw more playing time than many originally anticipated. Duncan started multiple games at the end of the season at left tackle after Andre Dillard struggled.
Tennessee used its last pick in the draft to select Tennessee-Martin wide receiver Colton Dowell. Dowell caught just one pass as a rookie, spending most of his time on special teams.
