The good, the bad and the unknown: 10 Titans takeaways from the 2021 NFL Draft

By John Glennon

    In real time it all takes place in about 48 hours, but the NFL Draft feels more and more like a season unto itself, one that football-crazed fans gleefully binge their way through each year.

    The Titans’ 2021 draft featured the usual assortment of plotlines, with a touch of the good, the bad and the uncertain.

    The good? A continued – and much-needed -- defensive makeover, one that may have included a couple of mid-round steals in cornerback Elijah Molden and edge rusher Rashad Weaver.

    The bad? A team that clearly needed to re-supply the passing attack didn’t select a wide receiver until the fourth round, and didn’t select a tight end at all.

    The uncertain? The long-term outlook of first-round pick Caleb Farley, a game-changing talent at cornerback who has already undergone a pair of back surgeries. His ability to return to full health – or not – will go a long way toward determining the success of this draft class.

    Here are 10 takeaways from the Titans’ draft, leaning toward Saturday’s four selections and the ensuing comments from general manager Jon Robinson and coach Mike Vrabel:
