The Tennessee Titans needed help on offensive and defensive after a seven-win season in 2013, and the organization found some playmakers in the 2014 NFL Draft. Now that the start of the new season is just around the corner, the Titans must address several key questions.

Here are five moves the Titans must make.

With the signings of DT DaQuan Jones, FS Marqueston Huff and ILB Avery Williamson, the Titans will need to find a way to gel its rookies into a defense that struggled against the rush in 2013. Some of these guys will just end up as depth on the roster, but defense needs to create more turnovers in 2014 and Huff and Jones could instantly contribute.

You can't argue his talent, but if tackle Taylor Lewan can't stay out of trouble, the Titans will have flushed a first-round pick down the toilet. He is currently facing assault charges, and the Titans need to help him keep his head on straight so he can block for his running backs and help them find the end zone.

3. Find Consistency in the Running Game

With a mix of Shonn Greene, Bishop Sankey and Dexter McCluster, the Titans have a chance to blend all these running backs into a dominant force. With that being said, a clear starter needs to make his presence known, and Tennessee can't get too cute designing plays with these backs.

Even though he had over 1,000 yards receiving and averaged 67.4 receiving yards a game, Kendall Wright only found the end zone twice in 2013. He will continue to be the go-to receiver in 2014, and the Titans must find a way to get Wright more touchdowns.

The Titans can either let Jake Locker start the season and see how he does, or the organization can see what it can get out of Zach Mettenberger. Being a backup to Locker will give Mettenberger time to feel comfortable playing after an ACL injury and allow him to learn the playbook, but the coaches and fans may not be patient enough for that to happen.
