The NFL draft will be here before we know it.  Now that Free Agency has settled down, team needs have come into focus.  That could mean only one thing – it’s time for another mock draft!  But rather than us sitting back and throwing darts at the wall, we thought we’d let you join in the fun.  We’ll roll through the draft order and give each team choices based on team needs and the best players available and you’ll vote on the picks for each team. On with the countdown…

11. Tennessee Titans (7-9)

In the 3rd season under head coach Mike Munchak, the Titans slightly improved on their 6-10 record from the previous season finishing 2nd in the weak AFC South. However, they were unable to qualify for the playoffs for the 5th straight season. When you have had 3 full seasons with little progress, you’re most likely going to join the ranks of the unemployed – which was exactly the fate of Munchak who was fired after the season in favor of Ken Whisenhunt. QB Jake Locker started the season looking like the 1st round player the Titans drafted. However, injuries plagued Locker again which has raised questions about his durability as well as a lot of uncertainty about the future of the Titans QB position. Even though both sides of the ball showed flashes at times, the 2013 Titans were the epitome of mediocrity. When you look at their league rankings, they seemed to not do anything very poorly, but nothing extremely well either. This new regime definitely has their work cut out for them in 2014….
