Insider's NFL and draft experts -- Todd McShay, Mel Kiper, Chris Sprow and Field Yates -- have teamed up to give a full breakdown of all that should be considered for each team as it enters the 2013 NFL draft. Here we look at the Tennessee Titans.

Personnel needs

G, DE, S, WR depth

Major need: The Titans acted fast to sign coveted free-agent guard Andy Levitre away from the Bills, and in doing so filled their most pressing need. Or at least halfway, as the Titans still need another guard to beef up the interior of their line. Chris Spencer was signed to add competition, but the Titans are in prime territory to land one of the two top guard prospects at pick No. 10 overall.

Quiet need: David Stewart and Michael Roos have tag-teamed to form one of the better tackle pairs in the NFL in recent seasons, but each has a voidable contract for the 2014 season and they are both 30 years old. Finding an heir apparent to either side in the draft is pivotal for Tennessee, who must continue to do whatever it can to protect quarterback Jake Locker.
