With a new head coach, a new defensive scheme, and potentially a new quarterback, this is bound to be an interesting draft for the Tennessee Titans. The Titans will be a bit limited with only six total picks, but they should be able to address most of their remaining needs. Here's a seven-round mock draft of what Tennessee could do in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Barr is the obvious choice for the Titans. Tennessee needs a linebacker and a lot of help with their pass rush, and Barr should help solve both of those problems. The team has said they won't take a cornerback in the first round, so a linebacker makes sense, making it likely that Barr ends up in Tennessee.
The Titans will surprise some people by taking Savage and allowing him to compete with Jake Locker for the starting job. Tennessee doesn't know exactly what they'll get from Savage, but they also can't just hand the job to Locker, and Savage has the kind of arm that's worth taking a chance on in Round 2.
Cornerback is one of Tennessee's biggest needs, and unfortunately Round 4 is the earliest they'll get to it. However, they'll get a good one with Reynolds, who can play a multitude of coverages and will be able to fit in whatever kind of defense the Titans want to play.
Without Chris Johnson, the Titans will need to add a running back in this draft, and White has good value in Round 5. He's stronger and more durable than you'd expect from a back his size, and he has a good burst that gets him to the second level quickly. At the very least, he'll be a viable part-time back for the Titans.
Mauro may not help out Tennessee's lackluster pass rush, but he's big and strong and can play defensive end in either a 3-4 or 4-3 defense. He'll add some versatility, and more importantly, some physicality to the Tennessee defensive line.
Evans is big and strong, and has just enough speed to be considered a deep threat. It won't hurt the Titans to add another playmaker to the offense, and Evans is a nice pickup in the final round of the draft.
