Evaluating the Top Tackle Options for the Titans in the 2024 NFL Draft


The Titans' desperate need for help at tackle is no secret. It’s been a point of discussion since it became obvious that Andre Dillard was not going to be the answer early on last season. Given the two-year disaster that the position has been in Tennessee, it’s somewhat surprising that nothing has been done to this point in free agency to offer even a temporary fix.

There are still some options out there, like David Bakhtiari, Mekhi Becton, and Cam Fleming that could be on the radar for Ran Carthon depending on what happens in the draft, but as things stand today, that position remains the flashing red light on the roster that you just can’t take your eyes off.

I have touched on my thoughts on this position group briefly in several previous columns but figured it would be worth a deep dive at this point as it seems exceedingly likely that the Titans will be taking a tackle within the top 38 picks in the draft. I’m going to break these guys down into three categories. Tier One is the group that would be viable picks at No. 7 overall or after a small trade back within the top 10, Tier Two are potential targets after a larger trade back to somewhere between 11 through 20, and Tier Three are options that I’d be comfortable with at or around pick 38.
