PFT spent a lot time last offseason detailing Kenny Britt’s off-field issues, always being careful to point out that the kid has top-ten NFL receiver ability if he can harness his talents.
During the season, he displayed those talents with 775 yards and nine touchdowns in only 12 games despite getting only seven starts. He also showed his immaturity, getting involved in a fight at a nightclub that led to a benching at the start of the game.
After Britt was arrested this week, the new Titans coaching staff got a big reminder that he may be difficult to count on as the team’s best receiver. He could possibly be suspended by the league early in the year.
Because of that, Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean believes the Titans could alter their draft plans. It seems unlikely they would go after someone at No. 8 overall, but perhaps Britt’s arrest highlights a need to add numbers to the depth chart in the middle rounds.
“Because of Britt’s behavior, the Titans are going to cover themselves moving forward,” NFL Network Solomon Wilcots said. “The question is, to what length do they go to cover themselves? Do they draft a guy in the first or second round or do they take two wide receivers later? . . . Let’s face it, their job was a lot easier up until Kenny Britt was arrested on Tuesday.”
The Titans have decent depth at wide receiver, but not especially exciting talent behind Britt.
