Tennessee Titans will be picking No. 1 in 2016 NFL draft

Here’s a quick look at the top three positional needs for the Titans:

Wide receiver: Dorial Green-Beckham might pan out and be a good NFL receiver. But the Titans need to start featuring Kendall Wright in the slot and not ask him to be a No. 1. Marcus Mariota needs a dynamic, go-get-it speedster to be a top threat every week, no matter the defense.

Offensive lineman: The Titans have spent first-round picks on offensive linemen in two of the past three years. Taylor Lewan should be the answer at left tackle. Chance Warmack has not established himself as top-level right guard. A coaching change and a new position coach could have a big impact to the current group, but there is definitely room for a top prospect.

Cornerback: The Titans need a big-time, playmaking cornerback. If a newcomer can be their top guy, they could resuscitate the group with Jason McCourty as the No. 2 and Perrish Cox as the nickel with some new pieces for depth behind them. The Titans get beaten way too much, even when they are in position to stop a play.

Just missed the cut: Running back.
