When you examine the Tennessee Titans roster heading into the 2016 season there are multiple areas where the team must improve their talent level for the upcoming season if this team is to improve on their 5-27 record over the last two seasons.
Of course the questions remain surrounding who will be the next general manager and head coach of the team, and those hired will play major roles in the players chosen to fill those voids, but the areas of need will remain the same regardless of who assumes these roles going forward.
The biggest area of need has been a glaring weakness throughout the last two season.
The offensive line, and in particular the left guard and right tackle positions specifically must be solidified to protect Marcus Mariota and allow this offense to start to gain traction,
Also cornerback is another area of a serious upgrade as Coty Sensabaugh is an unrestricted free-agent and Blidi Wreh-Wilson was benched and inactive late in the season. Jason McCourty finished the season on injured reserve and Perrish Cox battled injuries througout the season.
Solidifying the secondary at safety is a need as veteran Michael Griffin struggled in coverage late in the season.
The Titans also need to add talent at wide receiver and could also use an upgrade at running back, inside linebacker depth and another pass rusher up front is also a good idea.
The Titans hold the number one overall selection and with Cleveland sitting at number two and likely in the market for a quarterback, the Titans will likely look at options to trade down, and if possible that is the best move as the team could add draft picks with that move, and allow them to add depth or potential starters with those extra selections.
