The Tennessee Titans will be looking to add more talent to their defense in the 2021 season.
One position, in particular, they will be looking to improve with be in pass rushing.
One prospect the Titans are showing a lot of interest in is Texas edge rusher Joseph Ossai.
Texas EDGE Joseph Ossai tells me he’s talked to the #Titans a lot and has a few more interviews coming up with them.
Says he’s open to being used anywhere on the field and thinks he can make an impact the first year, whether that be on special teams or as a defensive starter.

According to Ossai, he’s been in touch with the Titans quite a few times.
“I’ve spoken to them quite a few times,” he said. “I’ve got a few more interviews coming up with them. I think they’re great. The coaching staff has reached out to me, and I don’t care where they use me at, but, wherever it is, I like the way they want to use me.”
Ossai’s draft stock has been on the rise as he displays impressive athleticism and quickness.
At 6’3 and 256 pounds, he ran a 4.63 40-yard dash and had a 41.5 vertical leap.

Ossai has confidence in his game and how it will translate to the NFL.
Joseph Ossai on how he's selling himself to NFL teams: "I don’t think I’m selling anything but me and my passion for the game. If they draft me, they’ll see that, and I think you can tell with my film."

“I don’t think I’m selling anything but me and my passion for the game,” Ossai said in a Zoom meeting with reporters. “If they draft me, they’ll see that, and I think you can tell with my film.”
Ossai is considered a 2nd round pick, with the potential to be a late first-rounder.
