The Tennessee Titans hold a total of seven picks in the 2022 NFL draft later this month, the first of which will come at No. 26 overall in the first round. The Titans also have one pick in the third and fifth rounds, and a pair of selections in the fourth and sixth rounds each.
As we’ve previously outlined, the Titans have picked from this spot three times in franchise history, finding at least some success with two of them. However, the franchise hasn’t picked at No. 26 overall since 1994 when defensive lineman Henry Ford was chosen.
In preparation for the 2022 NFL draft, we’re taking a look back at the last 12 players selected in this spot.
While there have no doubt been some disappointments, there have also been some picks who panned out quite well, including a few edge rushers and a wide receiver, which just so happens to be a need for Tennessee this year.
Now, a look at every single No. 26 overall pick since 2010.
