Last season started as a complete rebuilding process, from the first new head coach since the franchise was located in Houston to a new starting quarterback. It ended with a surprising fight for the playoffs that ended one win short of the postseason.
Instead of needs at every position, the Titans can be more selective with this draft class. Defense remains a priority even after the team selected defense with six of last year's nine draft picks.
Free agency has calmed down after Peyton Manning picked the Broncos. There may be a veteran or two who signs before Week 1, but for now the focus will be on the new first-year talents to arrive at Baptist Sports Park.
There's a lot less media attention on the Titans selecting at 20 compared to last year's eighth overall selection. The loss of Cortland Finnegan puts the spotlight on the new crop of cornerbacks. The Titans will open up their draft board.
