Titans welcome Michigan State OT AJ Arcuri to Top 30
According to a report by NFL Draft Diamonds, the Tennessee Titans hosted Michigan State offense AJ Arcuri on a private visit to the Top 30. I have since been able to confirm that report. The visit took place on Monday 4 April.

Arcuri enjoyed a four-year career at Michigan State. He has played 40 games overall with 25 career starts, including a career-high 13 starts in one season last season. Arcuri is a versatile offensive tackle prospect who has started 17 games at left tackle and eight contests at right tackle. His eight starts at right tackle have come in 2021.
Arcuri competed in Michigan State’s Pro Day on March 17. He jumped a 33.5-inch vertical and completed 27 solid reps on the bench press (at 225 pounds). Arcuri also clocked a 4.94 in the 20-yard shuttle. It was a great showcase for Arcuri, who was not invited to the NFL Scouting Combine.
Arcuri has drawn rave reviews for his Hula Bowl and NFLPA Collegiate Bowl performances throughout the All-Star Tour. Many believe Arcuri could be the first Hula Bowl entrant to be drafted in 2022.
Last year’s starting right tackle, David Quessenberry, remains a free agent. It’s unclear if the team consider Dillon Radunz as a goalkeeper or a tackle going forward. JaMarco Jones was signed in free agency, but head coach Mike Vrabel seems to view Jones more as a guard than a tackle. The Titans could take an offensive tackle at some point in the draft. It is difficult to predict when this choice could occur. It could be in the first round, or in the sixth or in the seventh round. Arcuri projects himself as a late Day 3 pick. If he’s not drafted, the Titans could attempt to sign him as an undrafted free agent. They are obviously interested in him. They only get 30 in person visits and they decided to use one on Arcuri.
