Tennessee Titans 2022 NFL Mock Draft Roundup

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2021 NFL draft, we will update our Tennessee Titans Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Tennessee Titans from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

CBS Sports - Chris Trapasso (1/20)

31. Jaxson Kirkland, OT, Washington

Kirkland is one of the more underrated blockers in this class, and the Titans need to fortify their group up front.

ESPN - Mel Kiper (1/19)

31. Kyler Gordon, CB, Washington

I really liked Caleb Farley in the 2021 class, but a torn ACL ended his season after just two games, and that was after a back injury dropped him to the Titans in Round 1. That injury history is a little scary, which is why the Titans could go with back-to-back first-round corners.

Like his college teammate Trent McDuffie, Gordon has some scheme versatility and the ability to play in the slot as well as outside. He improved a lot in 2021, picking off two passes and breaking up seven throws. He can also tackle, and I think he'll test well at the combine.

The Athletic - Dane Brugler (1/19)

31. Jahan Dotson, WR, Penn State

With his twitchy athleticism and route-running skills, Dotson consistently puts cornerbacks in conflict. Although he is undersized and won't break many tackles, he has the dynamic speed and ball skills that will give the Titans another dimension on offense.

PFF - Austin Gayle (1/17)

31. Myjai Sanders, EDGE, Cincinnati

One of my favorite late first-round picks in 2022, Cincinnati edge defender Myjai Sanders will draw scouts in with his performance at the combine at 6-foot-5 and 255 pounds. He recorded 40-plus pressures in back-to-back seasons (2020 and 2021) to close out his Bearcats career.

Baltimore Sun - C.J. Doon (1/14)

31. Jermaine Johnson, EDGE, Florida State

With Harold Landry hitting free agency and big-ticket signing Bud Dupree putting together a disappointing first season, the Titans could use some fresh blood at edge rusher. The 6-5, 262-pound Johnson racked up 14 sacks for the Seminoles after transferring from Georgia and proved to be a strong run defender.

Athlon Sports - Bryan Fischer (1/13)

27. Trevor Penning, OT, Northern Iowa

The Titans have built their identity around running the ball and that just so happens to be what Penning can do better than just about anybody in this draft class with his bulk and movement skills.

San Diego Union Tribune - Eddie Brown (1/13)

27. Trent McDuffie, CB, Washington

The Titans will likely address wide receiver and the tight end position this offseason, but their leaky secondary has to be a priority as well. McDuffie plays bigger than his 5-11 frame. He's one of the surest tacklers at the position in this draft class and his instincts are elite.

USA Today - Michael Middlehurst-Schwartz (1/12)

31. Bernhard Raimann, OT, Central Michigan

Never a bad idea to equip Derrick Henry and Ryan Tannehill with more support, especially following a season in which Tennessee's offensive line depth was put to the test by injuries and COVID-19. Raimann, a fast riser and converted tight end from Austria, could provide some much-needed flexibility for a front that needs closer evaluation after allowing 47 sacks.

For The Win - Charles McDonald (1/12)

31. Trevor Penning, OT, Northern Iowa

The Steelers get an interior upgrade for an offensive line that sorely needs it. Najee Harris and the Steelers' next quarterback would benefit from this.

The Draft Network - Joe Marino (1/10)

31. Drake London, WR, USC

The lack of depth when it came to offensive weapons hurt the Titans in 2021 given the injuries to Julio Jones and A.J. Brown. The Titans would be wise to change that going into next season to improve the depth and add to the mix of options for Ryan Tannehill.

Drake London is coming off an injury, which makes him the perfect target for Tennessee in the first round given their recent gambles. But the skill set London offers is perfect for this Tennessee offense where his size, ball skills, and route-running prowess can elevate the unit.
