Below you will find a post-NFL Draft roundup for the Titans in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.
The Athletic -- Rank: 10
Despite knocking off the No. 1 seed and advancing to the AFC Championship Game last year, it's hard to know exactly what to make of the Titans this offsesason: Re-signing Ryan Tannehill was the logical move, but at a hefty price tag, he'll need to be even better than he was late last season. And the lack of in-person offseason workouts has, so far, made Derrick Henry's contract status a non-issue. We'll see how much drama is there come July.
CBS Sports -- Rank: 16
They will be the same team as a year ago: run-heavy with Derrick Henry and hope the defense can step up. They have a 9-7 look about them.
USA Today -- Rank: 8
Has first team to ever finish 9-7 in four consecutive seasons done enough to take a Super Bowl step? Doubtful. Or even reach 10 wins? Maybe.
ESPN -- Rank: 8
Player who benefited: WR Kalif Raymond. The Titans were believed to be interested in adding speed at receiver, specifically a vertical threat on the outside. But they didn't use any picks to add a wideout, so Raymond stands as their top vertical threat and has a good shot at being the fourth receiver. He showed that he's a legitimate downfield option last season, when he hauled in two touchdown receptions that were over 40 yards -- including one in the playoffs. Raymond was also in the mix for punt return duties last year, and the Titans didn't draft a player with significant punt return experience. -- Turron Davenport

First-round pick Isaiah Wilson enters the right tackle competition created by the departure of Jack Conklin. It's an important position for the Titans, who leaned on Conklin to blow open holes for rushing champion Derrick Henry. Speaking of Henry, he has some new backfield company in Darrynton Evans. The third-round pick is a home-run hitter and a solid fit for Tennessee's scheme. With Henry poised to play out 2020 on a one-year franchise tag, could the Titans be grooming Evans as a potential replacement in 2021? Meanwhile, is Jadeveon Clowney still on the radar in Nashville? Tennessee didn't use any of its six picks on a traditional edge rusher. This feels like a perfect fit.
