Bleacher Nation NFL 2023 Mock Draft: Titans Add to the O-Line at No. 11


The Bleacher Nation NFL 2023 Mock Draft will be a running mock draft that spans between now and round one of the NFL Draft. Each of the 31 picks (Miami forfeited their first-round pick due to tampering) will get a dedicated post. Here’s how it’ll work:

  • Every pick in the Mock Draft gets its own post. We will do one or two picks per day.
  • We will link back to previous posts with a running draft recap.
  • This feature will not include trades and will cover the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft.

The Titans are on the clock in the Bleacher Nation NFL Mock Draft …

The Pick Is In

T Paris Johnson Jr. — Ohio State

The Fit

The Titans need help on the offensive line, and (former Ohio State player and coach) Mike Vrabel selects Paris Johnson Jr. to fill the need at No. 11.

The Titans are among teams that may trade up to No. 3 with the Cardinals, but this exercise has no trades, so the Titans land the Ohio State tackle.

Scouting Report

Paris Johnson Jr. is the best offensive tackle in the draft on most big boards, including Dane Brugler’s at The Athletic. Brugler calls Johnson “quick out his stance with the movement skills to mirror pass rushers around the arc or show off his pulling range in the run game.”

Brugler also notes that Johnson must replace his bad hits with more trust in his technique at the next level.

Johnson blocks with light feet and great movement skills. He’s quick with great lateral quickness abd can match speed with edge rushers and has great length. He pairs his length and quickness with great anticipation and flexibility.

Final Thoughts: If the Titans stay put at No. 11, and offensive lineman seems like a no-brainer for Tennessee. The Titans land a good one here.
