Tennessee Titans Focus on Defense

Garrett Gambill is a Memphis, TN professional who serves as a medical assistant at Advanced Dermatology & Skin Cancer Associates. Planning to pursue opportunities in sports medicine, Garrett Gambill follows sports teams in the local area, from the Memphis Grizzlies to the Tennessee Titans.

At the NFL Draft in May 2021, the Titans came in with several important roles to fill. Their strategy involved a first-round pick of proven linebacker Rashaan Evans and a second-round selection of potentially undervalued edge rusher Harold Landry. Another key pickup in the fifth-round was safety Dane
Cruikshank, who will likely be fit into special teams in the upcoming season, though he could see some time as regular safety.

When it came to adding to their offensive attack, the Titans went with wide receivers Dez Fitzpatrick in the fourth round and Racey McMath in the sixth round. As reported in Sports Illustrated, this left the team without the tight end pickup many expected the Titans to make. With Jonnu Smith, their top player in the position, signing with the Patriots in free agency, Tennessee now has several relatively untested players seeking to step into the role. General manager Jon Robinson acknowledged this, noting that the draft does not end the Titans’ roster-building efforts.
