19. Tennessee Titans: Washington Defensive Back Byron Murphy

One can only imagine how different January may have been if the Tennessee Titans reached the playoffs instead of losing the regular-season finale to the Indianapolis Colts, but at least there’s plenty of hope for 2019.

Without question, Marcus Mariota doing whatever it takes to stay healthy will be a top priority for the Titans next season, but also the quarterback is going to need the support from his defense as well.

Believe it or not, there were a few occasions throughout last season in which Tennessee’s defense put together some impressive performances, with the team’s win over the New England Patriots immediately coming to mind.

Of course, the fact that Tennessee failed to earn a trip to the playoffs for a second year in a row shows even this wasn’t enough, and while Mariota will hopefully receive some additional weapons to work with over the next few months, defense seems like a great option in the first round.

Has Byron Murphy made a strong enough case to be viewed as the top cornerback in the upcoming draft? Based off his performance at the combine, Murphy certainly made a strong case, and Tennessee would be lucky if he were to fall this late in the first round.
