After trading Pro Bowl defensive tackle Jurrell Casey to the Denver Broncos, the Tennessee Titans have a huge hole to fill along the interior of their defensive line.
Casey has totaled at least five sacks in each of the past seven seasons, along with earning a trip to the Pro Bowl for five straight years. Replacing that kind of production will be no easy task.
As of right now, the Titans projected defensive line has Jeffery Simmons and Isaiah Mack manning the left and right defensive end positions, with DaQuan Jones holding down the nose tackle. This starting lineup isn’t exactly ideal, as none of these players ranked in the top 25 of their respective positions according to Pro Football Focus.
Grabbing a defensive lineman is essential for the Titans in this draft. They’ll most likely target an interior lineman because they already have Harold Landry and newly signed Vic Beasley Jr. manning the edge rushing spots.
Here are three guys Tennessee should target to replace Casey’s production in the upcoming NFL Draft.
