2013 NFL Draft team needs: Tennessee Titans

The Titans were active in free agency and have many different directions they can go in the 2013 NFL Draft.

There are pieces in place for the Titans, but they haven't been able to turn the corner under head coach Mike Munchak. They finished the 2012 season in the bottom 10 in yards gained and yards allowed, and also finished with the most points allowed in the NFL.

Titans NFL draft coverage: Music City Miracles

With entrenched starters throughout the roster, the 2013 NFL Draft will be used as an opportunity for the Titans to build in the trenches and add depth to a thin roster.

Top three needs

Defensive end - After a slow start to his career, Derrick Morgan came into his own in 2012 and had one of the more overlooked performances of the year, recording 21 quarterback hits, second only to Cameron Wake of the Dolphins. However, the depth behind he and Kamerion Wimbley is very slim and the team could use a rotation of players.

Guard - The Titans had a huge need on the interior of their offensive line and addressed it by signing former Bills guard Andy Levitre. However, there's still a void to fill at right guard and the Titans could look to fill it early.

Cornerback - Jason McCourty and Alterraun Verner aren't a bad combination at all, but there's little depth behind them and Verner has had his best games when given the opportunity to cover in the slot. Another boundary corner could help allow him to do that.

Ideal pick: Chance Warmack, G, Alabama
