After releasing running back Chris Johnson, the Tennessee Titans will need to address this position at some point in the 2014 NFL Draft. If the Titans do not select a running back in the first three rounds, there are some interesting prospects who will be available on Day 3 who have the upside to be productive NFL starters. The Titans will also need to add depth at linebacker as they will be switching to a 3-4 defense in 2014.

Kapri Bibbs played just one year at Colorado State, but he made it count, amassing 31 rushing touchdowns and 1,741 rushing yards in 2013. Bibbs is just 5-foot-9, 212 pounds, but he combines strong vision with abrupt quickness, giving him the ability to make one cut and burst through the hole. With just one season of experience playing Division-I football, Bibbs is a curious prospect heading into the 2014 NFL Draft.

James Morris put together a 2013 season that jumps off the screen when you read his numbers, as he totaled 107 tackles, eight sacks and 18 tackles for loss to go along with four interceptions and two forced fumbles for the Hawkeyes. However, despite his incredible production, James Morris is projected to be a sixth or seventh-round pick due to his size (6-foot-1, 241 pounds) and his 40-yard dash time of 4.80 seconds.

Charles Sims transferred to West Virginia for the 2013 season and averaged 5.3 yards per carry with 1,095 yards rushing and 11 touchdowns. Sims ran well at the combine with a 40-yard dash time of 4.48 seconds. At 6-foot, 214 pounds, Sims has the size to carry the load of a No. 1 NFL running back.

Tyler Gaffney was the definition of a workhorse in 2013 for the Cardinal, gaining 1,709 yards on 330 carries with 21 touchdowns. At 5-foot-11, 220 pounds, Gaffney is built like a No. 1 running back and with a 40-yard dash of 4.49 seconds, he has the potential to be an above-average running back in the NFL.

Max Bullough was the leader of a stout Michigan State defense and at 6-foot-3, 249 pounds, he has the build and physicality to play in the middle of a 3-4 defense. With the Titans moving to the 3-4 in 2014, Bullough could provide depth as an inside linebacker who would have an opportunity to compete for a starting job.
