Titans Wire

● By Mike Moraitis
With Rodger Saffold gone, the Titans have a void to fill at left guard, but do have a potential in-house solution in Aaron Brewer, although the jury is still out on that. Also, depending on what happens with Nate Davis after this coming season (he’s in the final year of his rookie deal), Tennessee could have another need at right guard in 2023. Johnson would give Tennessee someone who can challenge for (and quite possibly win) the starting left guard job right away, and he could play right guard if Davis isn’t re-signed next offseason. The Titans are familiar with Johnson, as he was a teammate of Mike Vrabel’s son, Tyler, at Boston College. The 6-foot-3, 312-pound guard excels at pass protection, is an above-average run-blocker, an ideal fit in a zone-run scheme, and he has experience playing tackle, although he’s best suited for guard in the NFL. The Titans address two more positions of need with my next two picks. Shakir is best suited as a slot receiver, something the Titans need, and he can make big plays with his ability after the catch. With return experience, Shakir brings extra value.
