Ryan Tannehill has experienced the worst campaign of his three seasons as the Tennessee Titans’ starting quarterback in 2021, and his playoff defeat is alarming.
While the powerful Titans continue to claim Tannehill as their full-back in 2022, the teammate said Wednesday that they are dissecting options in the upcoming NFL draft to find an eventual successor. the end of Tannehill.
“There are certain drafts that are out of our reach because they will go in the top three or four picks and we pick in the latter part of the first round,” said Titans general manager Jon Robinson. told reporters at the combined NFL in Indianapolis on Wednesday. “We’re trying to figure out who might be at a distance that might not come and be seen, but we see a future.”
Tennessee is said to have met with Nevada full-backs Carson Strong and North Carolina’s Sam Howell at the combination and also has a meeting scheduled with Cincinnati’s Desmond Ridder.
The Titans have the 26th overall pick, so quarterbacks like Liberty’s Malik Willis, Pitt’s Kenny Pickett and Ole Miss’ Matt Corral could all be dropped from the table if Tennessee remains in that spot. The Titans currently do not have a second-round draft pick.
The quarterback is unlikely to be a draft target as the club have collectively put together a 12-5 record in the regular season. Tennessee is the No. 1 seed in the AFC knockout round.
But Tannehill, who turns 34 in July, hit three interceptions in a 19-16 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in the divisional round. While the Titans went home earlier than expected, the Bengals finished in the Super Bowl.
The post-season loss added some ball security issues as Tannehill threw 14 interceptions in 17 starts last season. In the previous two seasons, Tannehill had only made 13 appearances in 28 games (26 appearances).
His touchdown passes have also dropped from 33 in 2020 to 21 in 2021. He’s passed 3,734 yards, down slightly from 3,819 in the 16-match 2020 campaign.
Tennessee coach Mike Vrabel again endorsed Tannehill on Wednesday, citing the veteran’s leadership and toughness. However, Vrabel thinks that Tannehill needs to do better to raise the level of play of his teammates.
“Any midfielder in this league has to be able to do that,” Vrabel said. “Let’s get us into a game that is consistent and decisive with football. Bring the ball under pressure into the pocket and secure the ball. Those are the things that we will always ask Ryan or whoever comes back there.”
Tannehill completed 67.3% of his passes for the Titans and was a Pro Bowl pick in 2019. He threw 10,295 yards, 76 touchdowns and 27 interceptions in 45 games (43 times). starting) with Tennessee.
Overall, Tannehill raced past 30,729 yards, 199 touchdowns and 102 interceptions in 133 career games (131 starts) for the Miami Dolphins (2012-18) and Titans.
