Right now, the Titans need a pass-rusher, a corner, a strong safety, a middle linebacker and a kick returner to be what you could call "complete."
If they cut Johnson, add running back to the list of needs. Ditto with offensive tackle if they cut David Stewart. And if Whisenhunt decides to move on from Locker, then you have to throw quarterback into the mix.
On the bright side, it looks like a top prospect at a position of need will fall to the Titans, who pick 11th overall. This year's group of pass-rushers features Jadeveon Clowney, Anthony Barr and Khalil Mack as top-level talent, and one will certainly be available when the Titans pick.
The offensive tackle class is great too, with Jake Matthews and Greg Robinson both worthy of top-10 selections. Then there's lauded middle linebacker C.J. Mosley, safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and the great group of quarterbacks that declared this year.
All in all, it's a great draft class, especially for what the Titans need.
On the other hand, the Titans don't have a third-rounder and have more holes than they can possibly fill in the draft. Free agency can help some, but with little money to work with, the Titans are going to have to prioritize.
Rome wasn't built in a day, but the Titans need to make sure they get the right building blocks to start it off.
