2. Tennessee Titans

DeAndre Hopkins is the de facto No. 1 wide receiver in Tennessee but this will be his final year under contract. After him, the room is bleak. Former first-round pick Treylon Burks has struggled with injuries and consistency, resulting in no receiver outside of Hopkins eclipsing 425 yards.

If the Titans are serious about building around Will Levis, they need to invest in the wideout room. Levis throws a pretty deep ball, making Walker a logical fit as Tennessee establishes a new identity with Derrick Henry likely on his way out.

Going to a franchise like the Titans would give Walker time to develop, though for a different reason than with the Chiefs.

Tennessee doesn't expect to immediately contend, so Walker could get tons of playing time to develop chemistry with Levis as he improves the technical aspects of his game. We've seen the way great vertical threats can open up defenses to make offense easier, a la Tyreek Hill or DeSean Jackson, and Walker could make things easier for Levis' growth as well.

I'd put this fit among the more likely scenarios come draft day. There's one other AFC team that feels primed to select a receiver, and this QB's rocket arm would be a delight for UNC fans to watch.
