Tennessee Titans Draft Grades

How did the Titans do in the 2021 NFL Draft? Let’s give every pick the Tennessee Titans made draft grades.


Round 1: No. 22 – Caleb Farley, CB, Virginia Tech

I can confidently say that Caleb Farley is at worst the second most talented CB in the draft. Farley would have been a very high pick if not for his back injury. I’m confident that the Titans checked his medicals thoroughly, so they got an absolute steal here. If Farley’s healthy he will be a high end starter at CB. Grade: A-


Round 2: No. 53 – Dillon Radunz, OT, North Dakota State

Good news, this will be the last time you ever have to think about Isaiah Wilson. I honestly like Radunz more than I liked Wilson coming out of school. Radunz is also an elite athlete with great broad jump, 40 yard dash and three cone drills. This athleticism will help him play RT for the Titans, who run a lot of zone scheme in their running game, and roll QB Ryan Tannehill out of the pocket at a high rate. I’ll be shocked if Radunz isn’t a day one starter for the Titans at RT. Grade: A


Round 3: No. 92 (from GB) – Monty Rice, LB, Georgia

The Titans needed defensive help, anyone who watched them last year is well aware of that. Rice should help the Titans shore up their defense, but he was a reach. Rice is fast and smart. He’s a little undersized, but that works just fine in the Titans 3-4 defense. Also, Jayon Brown and Rashaan Evans are likely gone after this season. Rice has a real shot at starting in a year. Grade: C


Round 3: No. 100 – Elijah Molden, CB, Washington

Elijah Molden was the definition of a shutdown CB at Washington. He dominated opposing WRs allowing opposing QBs a rating of 44.9. Molden will come in and be a starting slot CB, and possibly see some safety work. Molden rounds out what looks to be a young talented group of CBs. Grade: A-


Round 4: No. 109-Dez Fitzpatrick, WR, Louisville

The Titans traded up to select Dez Fitzpatrick out of Louisville. The Titans were desperate for WR help, and decided that Fitzpatrick was the answer. He’s 6’2” and ran a 4.43 40 yard dash. His size and speed make me think he will play on the outside opposite AJ Brown with Josh Reynolds working the slot. Along with the size and speed you like WRs to have, Fitzpatrick had four solid years of production at Louisville, though none of them were eye popping. He steps in as the team’s expected 3rd WR. Grade: B 


 Round 4: No. 135 (from GB) – Rashad Weaver, DE, Pittsburgh

 The Titans couldn’t get to the QB last year and it showed as opposing teams lit them up through the air. The Titans added talent in their secondary to help, and here’s an EDGE to help them pressure the QB. In Weaver’s career at Pitt, he amassed 28 QB hurries and 17 sacks. He also scored a 90 in pass rush grade according to PFF. Weaver harasses the QB, and that’s exactly what Tennessee needs. Grade: A


Round 6: No. 205 – Racey McMath, WR, LSU

Racey is big, strong and fast. He measured in at 6’3” and ran a 4.34 40 yard dash. Big and fast is a good start for any WR, but McMath did not play very much at LSU. 2020 was his first time as a starting WR for LSU and he caught 14 balls for 195 yards in six games before he suffered a hamstring injury. The raw tools are there, but he obviously needs some polish. McMath seems like a good candidate to contribute on special teams while he learns the WR position. Grade: B-


 Round 6: No. 215 – Brady Breeze, S, Oregon

Back in the olden days of 2019, the Oregon Ducks won with a stifling defense. Brady Breeze was a big part of the Ducks success on that side of the ball. He was very productive putting up 62 tackles, 2 INTs, and 3 forced fumbles. He was also named the defensive MVP of the Rose Bowl. Breeze isn’t the most athletic safety you’ll find, but he’s smart and plays with a high motor. He also produced great numbers against PAC-12 talent. Breeze should at least be a good addition to the punt and kick coverage teams. Grade: B


Overall Grade: B+
