Despite the recent off-field issues, the Titans should draft Nick Fairley in the first round.
The Titans are not guaranteed that Fairley won’t be picked before they get a shot at him, but if he is around, they need to take him. Fairley will make an immediate impact on the defense and start paying off on the first day of the season.
On offense, the Titans are still built around running back Chris Johnson. The Titans need to answer their quarterback concerns before they consider picking up another wide receiver.
If the Titans pass on Fairley, they would be committing a major mistake they could regret for a long time.
