We are less than one month away from the 2024 NFL draft and the consensus for what the Tennessee Titans will do with their No. 7 overall pick has the team selecting Notre Dame left tackle Joe Alt.

But the Titans have to keep all options on the table at this point, as there’s no guarantee Alt will even be there when Tennessee is on the clock. If he’s not, the team could address a different position, or simply trade back entirely to secure more picks.

When asked about the team’s No. 7 overall pick while down at the annual league meetings this week, Titans general manager Ran Carthon said all options are currently on the table.

“Everything is on the table with where we are,” Carthon said, per Jim Wyatt. “You can say you want to trade out, but in order to trade, you need a partner. So, we’ll see where we are.”

As far as all the speculation about what Tennessee could do, Carthon admitted even his daughter is getting caught up in it.

“It is so funny, everybody has all these speculations about what we could and could not do,” Carthon said. “Even my 16-year-old daughter texted me the other day: ‘Hey, are we taking this tackle that everybody has us taking?’ She is now looking at the mocks and asking what will happen.

“So, it is going to be interesting. We’ll see where we are. But everything is on the table.”

Most experts agree that the tackle class is very deep this year, and that’s something Carthon subscribes to, saying “this tackle class is really deep, so there are going to be valuable guys throughout the draft.”

I firmly believe the Titans are going to take Alt at No. 7 if he’s there. But the good news is, if he’s not, Tennessee may still be able land a quality left tackle later in the draft.
