The Tennessee Titans entered the NFL Draft with a plethora of holes to fill on the roster. Especially on the offensive side of the ball.

Well, the front office applied heavy focus on the offense, which you would think the fanbase would appreciate.

Instead, the fans have been a hot mess since the conclusion of the draft.

Meanwhile, Titans general manager, Ran Carthon, seems more than happy with the outcome of the NFL Draft.

According to Kevin Patra, Carthon actually seemed surprised that Tennessee only selected offensive players. However, he claims the front office just played their board all the way through.

“‘It honestly just dawned on me about 30 minutes ago that it was all offense,’ Carthon said Saturday night following the 2023 NFL Draft. ‘We were just playing the board. But it wasn’t a designed plan or anything.'”

The Titans walked out of the draft with a monster of an offensive lineman in Peter Skoronski. They also acquired the quarterback of the future Will Levis in the second round.

Additionally, Tennessee may have planned for Derrick Henry’s possible departure in 2024 after selecting Tyjae Spears. Then finished the NFL Draft by picking two big-bodied pass options in Josh Wylie and Colton Dowell.

Not to mention another offensive lineman in Jaeylan Duncan.

The Titans’ biggest needs entering this draft were wide receiver and offensive line. At the conclusion of the draft, it was apparent Tennessee didn’t see any of the popular wide receivers as must-haves on the roster.

Despite that, Titans fans have been outraged about the NFL Draft since Day 1.

Titans fans were a hot mess over the weekend.

If these picks hit then this fanbase is going to switch up SO fast.

We won’t know if the Titans’ newly acquired rookies are good picks or not until at least a couple of years down the road.

The wide receiver position is still a glaring weakness on the roster. For that reason, look for the front office to possibly bring in a veteran at some point in the offseason.
