Tennessee Titans first round prediction for the 2021 NFL Draft.

If you’re anything like me you look way too far into the future for your favorite NFL team. I have a tendency to do this way too often for the Tennessee Titans. For Titans fans, there is already a prospect to fall in love with for 2021.

There’s a very good chance the Tennessee Titans will be picking in the latter half of the first round once again in 2021. This won’t stop them from picking a player who can impact the team immediately, though.

Going into the 2020 season, the Titans are lacking depth at the wide receiver position. Having said that, declining Corey Davis‘s 5th year option was a popular decision among fans. Davis is by no means a bust, but he hasn’t quite lived up to the hype of a top 5 pick.

Depending on Davis’s performance in the upcoming season, resigning him to a much cheaper contract is still an option. Although, even in that scenario I would still consider receiver a need for the Titans. There is already a perfect prospect to replace Davis in next years draft, and his name is Seth Williams.

Seth Williams, WR from Auburn, absolutely showed out last season. According to Sports Reference, Williams finished the season with 59 receptions for 830 yards and 8 touchdowns. He ranked 6th in receiving touchdowns in the SEC. This is much more impressive when you take a look at the players ranked above him:

The list of names ranked above Williams in TDs is quite impressive, especially when you take into account that two of them were first round picks in this years draft. Seth Williams is going to be the top target once again at Auburn, so I would expect him to move much higher up this list.

Here, you can see Williams making incredible plays against LSU and Alabama, who had impressive defenses last season, as always. In the first video, Williams goes up and over Derek Stingley Jr. who is projected to be a top 5 pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Seth Williams has played against NFL talent, and he has proven that he can compete. At 6’3 224 lbs, Williams is the same height as Corey Davis and a bit heavier. Williams definitely has NFL size, and he seems to be the perfect replacement if Corey Davis is no longer a Tennessee Titan after next season.
