As the 2024 NFL Draft nears, our seven-round team mock draft series continues with the Tennessee Titans.

Round 1, Pick 7: T Joe Alt, Notre Dame

Alt is an easy first-round offensive lineman on film, bringing a high football IQ at just 21 years old. He started as a true freshman at Notre Dame, playing more than 2,200 snaps in his three-year career. Despite being 6-foot-8, he has good flexibility to get in a three-point stance in run blocking and maintain good drive and leverage off the snap. His footwork is so quick for a player of his size, and his balance and core strength stand out. He is effective in both gap- and zone-blocking schemes. His only true weaknesses come from overextending his arms and getting off balance to dictate contact, and a lack of density when absorbing bull rushes.

Round 2, Pick 38: EDGE Adisa Isaac, Penn State

Isaac is a very solid edge prospect. First and foremost, he is a stout run defender, even at a low weight. His hand placement and leverage are consistent and effective when holding the line of scrimmage, which allows him to rip off blocks to make tackles after setting the edge. His hands are also active when rushing the passer. He loves the club-rip move, and he uses it consistently to turn the corner and get around blockers quickly. My biggest issue with him stems from concerns about his strength due to his lower weight. His burst and pursuit speed aren't elite, but they are good enough for the next level.

Round 4, Pick 106: DI Michael Hall Jr., Ohio State

At 6-foot-2, Hall is not long enough to be a 3-4/4-3 defensive end. And at 280 pounds, he's not big enough to be a full-time defensive tackle. However, his play is quite productive. At his lower weight, speed and quickness are his calling cards. He loves to get across an offensive lineman's face to shoot a gap and get into the backfield. He does this either with a fast club-arm over or by setting his blockers up with a Euro step before making a move. As a run defender, he is strong for his size, especially when he maintains a lower leverage. But inconsistent — too wide or too low — hand placement negates that, at times.

Round 5, Pick 146: WR Isaiah Williams, Illinois

Williams' scouting report starts with his devastating quickness. He is explosive and controlled in his movements, especially in his releases off the line of scrimmage. He can also change up his release speed to put cornerbacks in tough spots. His explosiveness allows him to create separation without contact and even through contact. He has great body control to make tough adjustments for catches. Williams' lack of size affects both his blocking and tackle-breaking potential, and his shorter arms and smaller hands limit his catch radius.

Round 6, Pick 182: T Ethan Driskell, Marshall

Driskell is a massive and powerful left tackle who would work well in a man/gap scheme where his job is to vertically displace defenders. Even with his slow foot speed, if he can improve his hand placement, he can be a depth tackle prospect.

Round 7, Pick 242: WR Lideatrick Griffin, Mississippi State

Griffin will be drafted due to his kick- and punt-return ability. He has the athletic mold of more of a flanker or slot receiver, but he needs to be more consistent with his hands while diversifying his route tree to be more than just a go-ball receiver.

Round 7, Pick 252: RB Kendall Milton, Georgia

What you see is what you get with Milton, who is a strong north-to-south runner with plus pass-blocking ability. However, his injury history and lack of a true playmaker's mentality in space will likely limit him to depth-back and special-teams roles.

Safety worth way more than 2 points. Help protect your family with fast, free will.
