Top Targets for the Tennessee Titans: Best Available Players after Day One of Free Agency

As the dust settles on the first day of free agency, The Tennessee Titans made a single, somewhat modest move to sign Andre Dillard. This move could prove to be a good one for the Titans, as Dillard’s versatility and upside make him a valuable addition to the roster. Though he’s primarily played at left tackle, Dillard’s short but overall solid stint in the NFL has seen him take on every position along the offensive line, with the exception of center. While there were rumors that he was brought in to replace Nate Davis at right guard, it’s widely believed that he’ll be anchoring the left tackle spot – at least for the time being.

However, as we delve deeper into the Titans’ current state, it’s clear that they have several areas of need. Titans fans should keep in mind that not all of these needs will be met through free agency, but the team will certainly aim to address some – if not most – of these issues come draft day:

Biggest positions of need:

  • LG
  • RG
  • C (Assuming Brewer is not resigned)
  • WR
  • CB
  • MLB

Offensive Guard:

It’s clear that the Titan’s offense very much relies on the success and performance of their offensive line. In recent years, this unit has been a glaring weakness that has held the team back. This offseason presents a prime opportunity for them to invest in this critical area, and doing so could pay dividends in unlocking the full potential of their explosive offense led by the indomitable Derrick Henry.

  1. Isaac Seumalo
  2. Dalton Risner
  3. (Steelers) Nate Herbig
  4. Will Hernandez
  5. Graham Glasgow (Also Center)
  6. Trai Turner
  7. Evan Brown (Also Center)
  8. Max Scharping
  9. Elijah Wilkinson
  10. Wes Schweitzer (Also Center)
  11. David Edwards
  12. Coleman Shelton (Also Center)
  13. Billy Price (Also Center)

Wide Receiver:

As the Tennessee Titans gear up for the upcoming NFL season, they boast a subpar receiving corps featuring big-bodied Treylon Burks, reliable slot receiver Kyle Phillips, and backup Nick Westbrook. However, there’s still room for improvement in terms of speed and agility. Head coach Mike Vrabel has previously expressed his desire for a faster team, and it’s clear that the Titans need to bolster their receiving corps with a taller, faster receiver who can complement Burks on the outside. Im not sure the Titans can afford to break the bank at the receiver position so these options will be within the spending range the team can afford:

  1. (Patriots) JuJu Smith-Schuster
  2. Chosen Anderson
  3. DJ Chark
  4. Mecole Hardman
  5. Darius Slayton
  6. Parris Campbell
  7. Sammy Watkins
  8. Trent Sherfield
  9. Dante Pettis
  10. Breshad Perriman


As the Tennessee Titans continue to build their roster for the upcoming season, it’s unlikely that they’ll break the bank on an edge rusher or an outside linebacker. Instead, they’re looking for a solid rotational piece to complement their existing defensive lineup. This means that they’re likely to be in the market for a pass rusher with a salary range of around 3 to 6 million dollars, rather than a full-on starter. There are so many players that could fill this need I’m not sure I could list out all of them. There are dozens of edge rushers and outside linebackers that are solid rotational pieces that the Titans could bring in and it would fill the need completely fine.


As the Tennessee Titans look to strengthen their cornerback lineup, they face a particular challenge: a roster that is dominated by smaller players. While they have solid depth in the slot and nickel positions, they need a cornerback who can hold their own on the outside and match up well against bigger, physical receivers.

To fill this need, the Titans will be on the lookout for a faster, taller cornerback who can complement Kristian Fulton and add a new dimension to their defensive game. It’s no easy task, as finding a player who can seamlessly integrate into their existing system and hold their own against the league’s best receivers is no mean feat. Here are a few guys who could fill that role:

  1. Ronald Darby
  2. Bradley Roby
  3. (Lions) Emmanuel Moseley
  4. Sean Murphy-Bunting
  5. Byron Murphy
  6. Eli Apple
  7. Shaquill Griffin
  8. Joejuan Williams
  9. Anthony Averett

Middle Linebacker:

The Tennessee Titans find themselves in an intriguing position as they look to rebuild their middle linebacking corps. With most of their starters departing over the past few seasons, the Titans are in the midst of a transition period, and the search for new talent is on.

The question is, will they look to the draft, or explore the possibilities of free agency? Only time will tell, but one thing is certain: the Titans need to find linebackers who fit their play style and bring the right mix of skills and attitude to the field.

  1. Jayon Brown
  2. Kwon Alexander
  3. Cory Littleton
  4. Sione Takitaki
  5. Drue Tranquill
  6. (Cowboys) Leighton Vander Esch
  7. (Steelers) Cole Holcomb
  8. Deion Jones
  9. Anthony Walker
  10. Devin Bush Jr.
  11. Ben Niemann
  12. Nick Kwiatkoski

As we eagerly await the conclusion of free agency, it’s worth noting that the Tennessee Titans most likely have several potential targets beyond the players I’ve personally listed here. While my meticulous statistical analysis has identified the top performers at each position (in the Titan’s price range), the Titans’ front office undoubtedly has a broader perspective. However, rest assured that I will provide a comprehensive breakdown of the team’s free agency moves once the dust has settled. Stay tuned!

Reflecting on My Top 5 Day 3 Targets from Last Year’s NFL Draft: How Did They Perform and Where Are They Now?

  • Tariq Woolen

The fact Tariq Woolen fell that far in the draft shocked me. I was a massive fan of his coming out of UTSA and after his NFL combine performance, I was an even bigger fan. It’s not every day you see a 6’4″ cornerback run a 4.26 40-yard dash ( tied for third-best in the Combine history and fastest for a player over six foot). I feel extremely proud of myself for this one, I just knew after watching his film and seeing him display his unworldly athleticism at the combine, he had the potential to be dangerous in the NFL. Woolen took the NFL by storm, in his first season, he was selected to the Pro Bowl as well as being the NFL Interceptions co-leader and made the All-Rookie first team.

  • Calvin Austin III

The 2022 season didn’t go as Calvin or I had hoped. He sustained a major foot injury in training camp at the beginning of the season and wasn’t able to play at all during his entire rookie season. The quick and speedy receiver will have to wait until the 2023 season to show the NFL world how dangerous he can be with the ball in his hands. The Steelers coaches said they saw “a lot of flashes” in camp when he was healthy and said it’s “going to be crazy” when he’s back healthy for them this upcoming offseason.

  • Kingsley Enagbare

For a 5th-round pick, Enagbare outperformed his draft spot and proved the packers got a solid pass rusher deep in the draft. Kingsley played in all 18 of the Packers games this season and made 7 starts. He was able to get 3 sacks on the season along with an impressive 17 QB Hurries. All things considered, Kingsley had a very solid rookie season and he’s just going to keep improving from here on out.

  • Zach Tom

Tom might end up being one of the best offensive linemen from the 2022 NFL Draft when it’s all said and done. After being drafted in the 4th round by the packers Tom was not expected to be a part of their offensive line in his rookie season. That all changed when he was forced to play due to injuries on the packers line in week 7, and after that, he played and started in almost every game until the end of the season. In the almost 500 offensive snaps he played last season, Tom didn’t commit a single penalty and allowed just one sack. He graded out as one of the best pass-protecting rookie linemen despite the fact the packers used him in 4 different positions along their offensive line.

  • Cade Otton

Otton was perhaps one of the most underrated picks from the later rounds of the 2022 draft. He ended up starting 10 games for the Buccaneer’s offense last season, catching 42 passes for nearly 400 yards and two touchdowns. Where Otton really shined was in his blocking ability. He immediately proved himself as one of the best blocking tight ends in football earning a pass-blocking grade of 79.3 from PFF which was the 5th best grade in all the NFL for the tight end position. At only 23 years old, Otton still has time to get himself more involved in the passing game and perhaps round himself into one of the top all-around Tight Ends in football.

The Ideal Tennessee Titans in the 2023 Offseason: (Incomplete Article, Still in Progress)


✔️ Todd Downing: Simply put, Downing has absolutely been atrocious for this Tennessee Titans offense. The Titans are bottom five in almost every single category on offense outside of pure rushing statistics (due to Derrick Henry). There is no creativity in the offense, once you’ve seen one Titans game you’ve seen all of them, from a play-calling perspective nothing changes from week to week. It’s the same game plan, the same play calls, and the same mediocre results. The Titans need to modernize this offense. They have to bring in someone with a better understanding of modern offenses and is willing to push the pace, utilize play action, and get back to the Titans offense we saw dominate the NFL in 2020.

✔️ Keith Carter: This is long overdue. Whether the Offensive line struggles are Carter’s fault or not, something needs to be done. This offensive line has been a bottom-third line in the NFL statistically speaking for the last three seasons and it just keeps getting worse year after year. Some of the personnel decisions up front have been baffling to say the least over the last few seasons. Such as the continual trust in Dennis Daley who was one of the worst linemen in the NFL statistically and was single-handedly responsible for the killing of multiple Titans offense possessions this season. Simply put, change needs to happen upfront.

Frank Piraino, Brian Bell, Todd Toriscelli, and Matt Gregg: The Titan’s injuries in the last few seasons have almost been legitimately unbelievable. When you take a look at the number of players on IR, the number of games missed by starters, and the number of overall players used due to injury, the Titans have topped those lists by a mile in the last two seasons and it hasn’t even been close. One season with injury after injury is one thing, but two seasons in a row where a team is leading the league in every single category injury-wise, someone needs to be held accountable even if you can’t directly prove it’s on the strength and conditioning coaches or on the athletic training staff. This isnt really an issue that has a provable cause, but you won’t know if there is a solution unless action is taken and some staff in these areas are fired and replaced.

Quarterback Situation:

Not Many Options here:

  • Cut Tannehill, Roll with Malik as the starter, and bring in some competition for a lower salary
  • Keep Tannehill and let Malik develop another season
  • Cut Tannehill and bring in a veteran on a one or two-year deal to fill in as a starter until Malik is ready (This is only if the Coaching staff and new GM think its time for a major change Offensively and they can get a serviceable QB in free agency on a cheap deal. I don’t see this happening.)
  • Cut Tannehill, trade up, and Draft a QB in the upcoming draft if they think Malik isn’t the QB of the future

Malik Willis has proven he has all the tools to be an electric Quarterback in this league, I just don’t think he’s proven he’s developed enough to take over as an NFL starter. Tannehill is serviceable, and with decent pass protection, he’s proven he can even be a top-tier game manager (perhaps top 15 in the NFL). I don’t believe Tannehill is anywhere near the problem. This Offensive Line has been atrocious this season, ranked 32nd in the NFL through week 18 by PFF. Tennessee’s line is the third-most penalized group in the NFL — they have been flagged 36 times as a group and are tied for the lowest average yards before contact figure in the NFL (0.8 yards). They cant pass block or run block. Any criticisms directed toward the Quarterbacks should immediately be shifted and directed toward this atrocious offensive line. The only two linemen for the Titans with a positive grade this season are Ben Jones and Nate Davis.

Options if you go with a QB in free agency to save some money:

(Stats averaged over last four seasons)

  • *Teddy Bridgewater (67.6 Cmp%, 2.0 Int%, 93.8 QBRate)
  • Baker Mayfield (60.7 Cmp%, 2.8 Int%, 84.5 QBRate)
  • *Gardner Minshew II (62.8 Cmp%, 1.6 Int%, 93.1 QBRate)
  • Taylor Heinicke (63.8 Cmp%, 2.9 Int%, 85.7 QBRate)
  • Case Keenum (62.8 Cmp%, 2.3 Int%, 84.1 QBRate)
  • *Jacoby Brissett (62.1 Cmp%, 1.5 Int%, 85.8 QBRate)

The only way cutting Tannehill makes sense is if the front office thinks they can get another serviceable quarterback in free agency on a cheap enough deal to where cutting Tannehill makes sense. Now there aren’t many quarterbacks that are hitting the market that are also serviceable enough to win games and be substantially cheaper than Tannehill (or cheaper enough to make the cap hit worth cutting him). Tom Brady will want substantial money, Geno Smith is likely to go back to Seattle on a big deal, and Jimmy Garoppolo has earned a nice paycheck and is also rumored to want to go back to the 49ers. Those three are by far the top quarterbacks in the free agency market this season. Now when you look at the tier 2 players that could step in you see names like Jacoby Brissett, Andy Dalton, Baker Mayfield, Taylor Heinicke, Baker Mayfield, Teddy Bridgewater, Gardner Minshew, Case Keenum, etc.
When breaking it down by statistics, there are only four or five quarterbacks in that second-tier that put up numbers (in the last four years) that could be considered starting quality. Those names are Teddy Bridgewater, Gardner Minshew, Taylor Heinicke, Case Keenum, Baker Mayfield, and Jacoby Brissett. Now, where this argument for bringing in a new quarterback in the offseason breaks down is that Ryan Tannehill beats out all of those quarterbacks in almost every single statistical category. While Teddy Bridgewater and Gardner Minshew’s quarterback ratings are well above average, Tannehill’s quarterback rating is still eight points above theirs. If the coaching staff and the new management staff think that the quarterback position needs to change in the offseason I wouldn’t necessarily understand it unless the team could save a lot of money and still bring in someone like Bridgewater or Minshew to fill in that role for a year two. The most likely outcome here is the Titans restructure and resign Tannehill to a one or two-year extension in the offseason and might look to draft a Quarterback if one falls to them at pick 11 or they see an opportunity to trade up. If they don’t draft one this offseason, they might look to draft one of the top Quarterbacks in 2024. The last, and perhaps most far-fetched option, is the Titans find some way to dump Tannehill in the offseason and are able to bring in Tom Brady via free agency or Aaron Rodgers via trade with the Green Bay Packers. Tom Brady is known to have a very friendly relationship with head coach Mike Vrabel and might have some interest in joining the Titans in the offseason if they could find some way to work out a deal. Aaron Rodgers to Tennessee has been speculated recently and with new management coming into Tennessee, they might look to pull off a big deal once all the front office staff is finalized and they can get to work negotiating and evaluating what they want to do with the roster.

Offensive Line:

When you watched the Titans play this season it was apparent what the biggest hole in the roster was, and that was the offensive line. This line gave up the most sacks per dropback, the most pressures per drop back, and the most negative run plays in the league and was ranked 32nd in almost every category. To put it bluntly, they were historically bad. Now with the inevitable release of LT Taylor Lewan, and the probable retirement of Center Ben Jones, the Titans will be looking for a new starter in just about every position on the Line this offseason besides Right Tackle. The Titans need to address the problems on the O-Line in the Draft as well as Free Agency, so let’s take a look at the starting quality Linemen that will be on the open market that the Titans should consider bringing in.

(All stats are an average of the player’s last three years in the league. I will only show players with above-average stats that would make quality starters in my eyes for the Tennessee Titans or any team in the NFL)

Best Statistical Offensive Guards Currently Available in 2023 Free Agency:

Ben Powers:

Powers is a swing tackle who has really impressed the past few seasons. Playing at both left guard and right guard he has shown his ability to be an outstanding pass protector as well as an above-average run blocker (which you have to be to play in that Baltimore system). He has taken over the starting left guard role in Baltimore and would make a great addition to any offensive line. With him being only 26 years old, he could be the Titans starting guard for years to come.


26 Years Old

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Sack Allowed: 438 Snaps

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Hit Allowed: 329 Snaps

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Hurry Allowed: 41 Snaps

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Pressure Allowed: 34 Snaps

Offensive Snaps per Penalty: 297 Snaps

PFF Pass Blocking Grade: 73.7 Average

PFF Run Blocking Grade: 57.2 Average

Isaac Seumalo:

The former third-round pick Seumalo has played just about every position on the Eagle’s offensive line since being drafted in 2016. Playing mostly inside, he has shown how solid of a pass protector he is boasting an average pass protection grade of 79.2 his past three seasons combined. Seumalo is one of the most versatile linemen in Free Agency this offseason and would make a great addition to the Titan’s offensive line no matter where they decide to play him.


29 Years Old

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Sack Allowed: 224 Snaps

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Hit Allowed: 280 Snaps

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Hurry Allowed: 37 Snaps

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Pressure Allowed: 29 Snaps

Offensive Snaps per Penalty: 165 Snaps

PFF Pass Blocking Grade: 79.2 Average

PFF Run Blocking Grade: 66.3 Average

Dalton Risner:

While PFF isn’t exactly foolproof, you can use their grades to help back up your assumptions about a player and can use their grades to aid in your evaluation of stasticts. When you look at the former second-round pick Risner, he has never had a season where he averages below a 69 grade for pass protection. His pass protection grades are some of the most consistent around the league and his stasticts back that up as well. He almost never commits penalties (just three called penalties in the past 3 seasons combined) and is still young enough to be the Titan’s starting left guard for the duration of his contract. If he hits the open market, he immediately becomes one of the most dependable linemen in free agency.


27 Years Old

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Sack Allowed: 244 Snaps

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Hit Allowed: 101 Snaps

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Hurry Allowed: 32 Snaps

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Pressure Allowed: 22 Snaps

Offensive Snaps per Penalty: 932 Snaps

PFF Pass Blocking Grade: 71.9 Average

PFF Run Blocking Grade: 56.7 Average

Will Hernandez:

Coming out of college Will Hernandez was considered a high first-round lock. He ended up falling just out of the first round and was drafted by the New York Giants with the 34th overall pick. While Hernandez hasn’t lived up to his expectations, he hasn’t been a total bust either. Will has definitely had his ups and downs in the league but has been able to put together some really good games in his career. Hernandez has consistently struggled with consistency in his career. In Arizona’s first 7 games this season, he gave up a total of 22 pressures, in their final 6 games he only gave up a total of 3 pressures. If he can lock in and get more consistent with his blocking technique, he has the talent to be a starting swing guard in the NFL.


27 Years Old

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Sack Allowed: 140 Snaps

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Hit Allowed: 119 Snaps

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Hurry Allowed: 30 Snaps

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Pressure Allowed: 20 Snaps

Offensive Snaps per Penalty: 148 Snaps

PFF Pass Blocking Grade: 61.6 Average

PFF Run Blocking Grade: 59.2 Average

Nate Herbig:

Herbig is another versatile interior lineman who should be on the Titan’s radar. Herbig signed with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of Stanford in 2019 and has been a starter ever since his second year in the league. He bounced around from left guard to right guard for the Eagles and also this season for the Jets. Had four games this season where he didn’t give up a single QB pressure. With Herbig being only 24 years old, he’s as young as some rookies the titans would be looking at drafting but comes with four years of NFL experience. If the Jets let him hit the open market, he’s a solid long-term option for the interior of the O-Line.


24 Years Old

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Sack Allowed: 424 Snaps

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Hit Allowed: 181 Snaps

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Hurry Allowed: 29 Snaps

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Pressure Allowed: 20 Snaps

Offensive Snaps per Penalty: 116 Snaps

PFF Pass Blocking Grade: 64.8 Average

PFF Run Blocking Grade: 64.1 Average

Nick Gates:

While Gates doesn’t provide the experience some of the other players might, he definitely adds quality and potential. Gates hasn’t started many games in the last few seasons, but in the ones he has played in he’s been a very quality offensive lineman. He is an extremely versatile Lineman who has played 4 out of the 5 lineman positions in the NFL. Has over 200 snaps at right tackle, over 1,000 snaps at center, and over 300 snaps at guard. In his time in the NFL, Gates has only allowed two sacks in his entire career. Even if the Titans don’t plan on starting Gates, he would be a tremendous backup for almost every position on the line.


27 Years Old

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Sack Allowed: 887 Snaps

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Hit Allowed: 296 Snaps

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Hurry Allowed: 39 Snaps

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Pressure Allowed: 33 Snaps

Offensive Snaps per Penalty: 118 Snaps

PFF Pass Blocking Grade: 60.1 Average

PFF Run Blocking Grade: 62.9 Average

Andrew Wylie:

Wylie is a versatile lineman who has over 1,000 snaps played at both right tackle and right guard as well as over 500 snaps played at left guard in his career. The veteran Lineman started his career as an offensive guard and has since moved to tackle in the past three seasons. When you take a look back at his career, his best season as a blocker came in 2019 when the Chiefs had him playing left guard. He allowed just 8 hurries all season but was then moved to right guard the following season which didn’t fit his play as much as the left side did.


28 Years Old

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Sack Allowed: 266 Snaps

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Hit Allowed: 100 Snaps

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Hurry Allowed: 33 Snaps

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Pressure Allowed: 23 Snaps

Offensive Snaps per Penalty: 238 Snaps

PFF Pass Blocking Grade: 67.2 Average

PFF Run Blocking Grade: 59.1 Average

Connor McGovern:


25 Years Old

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Sack Allowed: 194 Snaps

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Hit Allowed: 97 Snaps

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Hurry Allowed: 32 Snaps

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Pressure Allowed: 22 Snaps

Offensive Snaps per Penalty: 502 Snaps

PFF Pass Blocking Grade: 67 Average

PFF Run Blocking Grade: 56.7 Average

Max Scharping:

Scharping is a former second-round pick of the Houston Texans. While Scharping hasn’t had the most successful career in the NFL thus far, he hasn’t shown anything so bad that he should be written off as a career backup just yet. He is still only 26 years old and honestly has been an above-average pass blocker most of his time in the NFL. With all that happened in his time in Houston with multiple coaching changes, QB controversies, and not having the best offensive coordinators, a fresh start will be good for the ’19 second-round pick. As of me writing this breakdown, Scharping is about to be thrust into a starting role with the Bengals as they enter the playoffs due to their starting guard Alex Cappa going down with an injury. If he performs well, that might get him on the Titan’s radar for a potential signing this offseason.


26 Years Old

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Sack Allowed: 222 Snaps

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Hit Allowed: 166 Snaps

Pass Blocking Snaps Per Hurry Allowed: 30 Snaps

Top Potential Day Two and Three Analytical Left Tackle Prospects in the 2023 NFL Draft:

This list of players is compiled of Draft eligible Left Tackles that were standouts statistically this season in the listed statistics below. Each players statistics are an average of their career not just the 2022-23 NCAA season.

Braeden Daniels: Utah

  • 6’4″ / 297lbs
  • Averages One Penalty Every 101 Offensive Snaps
  • Averages One Sack every 282 Pass Blocking Snaps
  • Allows One Quarterback Hit Every 353 Pass Blocking Snaps
  • Allows One Quarterback Hurry Every 32 Pass Blocking Snaps
  • Allows One Quarterback Pressure Every 27 Pass Blocking Snaps

Daniels is a versatile Left Tackle who can play multiple positions on the offensive line. Daniels started his career at left guard, playing there for 2 and a half seasons before switching to right tackle in 2021. It was announced in 2022 that he would transition to left tackle and Daniels has really found a home there. Allowing no sacks, no quarterback hits, and only receiving two penalties all season, Daniels has proven he is an NFL-caliber Left Tackle.

Blake Freeland: BYU

  • 6’8″ / 305lbs
  • Averages One Penalty Every 164 Offensive Snaps
  • Averages One Sack every 701 Pass Blocking Snaps
  • Allows One Quarterback Hit Every 127 Pass Blocking Snaps
  • Allows One Quarterback Hurry Every 48 Pass Blocking Snaps
  • Allows One Quarterback Pressure Every 33 Pass Blocking Snaps

Freelands first two seasons at BYU were spent at right tackle where he was still a solid lineman, but wasn’t getting much NFL buzz. After the 2020 season, he made the switch to left tackle where he has solidified himself as the nations leading statistical left tackle. He cut his pressures and hurries allowed in half after making the positional switch and in total has allowed just 8 quarterback hurries in the last two seasons combined (872 pass-blocking snaps).

Karsen Barnhart: Michigan

  • 6’5″ / 308lbs
  • Averages One Penalty Every 371 Offensive Snaps
  • Averages One Sack every 271 Pass Blocking Snaps
  • Allows One Quarterback Hit Every 180 Pass Blocking Snaps
  • Allows One Quarterback Hurry Every 32 Pass Blocking Snaps
  • Allows One Quarterback Pressure Every 25 Pass Blocking Snaps

Barnhart is a lineman that has never really found his home on the Michigan offensive line. He’s played 550 snaps at right tackle, 361 at left tackle, 174 at left guard, and 25 at right guard. If a team is looking for a swing tackle or a solid versatile lineman who can play anywhere on the offensive line, Barnhart is worth a look.

Anton Harrison: Oklahoma

  • 6’5″ / 315lbs
  • Averages One Penalty Every 124 Offensive Snaps
  • Averages One Sack every 250 Pass Blocking Snaps
  • Allows One Quarterback Hit Every 334 Pass Blocking Snaps
  • Allows One Quarterback Hurry Every 39 Pass Blocking Snaps
  • Allows One Quarterback Pressure Every 30 Pass Blocking Snaps

Harrison is your classic lockdown Left Tackle prospect who is a two-year starter on the Sooner’s offensive line. He has played over 95% of his college snaps at Left Tackle and seems to have a hold of that position.

Kadeem Telfort: UAB

  • 6’8″ / 330lbs
  • Averages One Penalty Every 101 Offensive Snaps
  • Averages One Sack every 198 Pass Blocking Snaps
  • Allows One Quarterback Hit Every 132 Pass Blocking Snaps
  • Allows One Quarterback Hurry Every 80 Pass Blocking Snaps
  • Allows One Quarterback Pressure Every 38 Pass Blocking Snaps

Telfot is one of the few players on this list that is a pure left tackle. Telfort was a 4-star Offensive Tackle recruit coming out of High School and originally committed to Florida before switching his enrollment to UAB. He is an absolute eraser on the edge and handles Conference USA edge rushers and defensive ends with ease. His mobility isn’t the greatest (Being 6’8″ and 330lbs) and struggled a bit during his only non-conference game this season against LSU allowing 2 QB hits which were his only ones allowed all season.

Darnell Wright: Tennessee

  • 6’6″ / 335lbs
  • Averages One Penalty Every 122 Offensive Snaps
  • Averages One Sack every 146 Pass Blocking Snaps
  • Allows One Quarterback Hit Every 132 Pass Blocking Snaps
  • Allows One Quarterback Hurry Every 44 Pass Blocking Snaps
  • Allows One Quarterback Pressure Every 27 Pass Blocking Snaps

Wright is a swing tackle that has progressed every single year he’s played at Tenessee. He was considered the top offensive tackle in the class of 2019 and came into Knoxville as a right tackle. After his first two seasons, he moved to left tackle where he played and started the 2021 season before being moved back to right tackle for the 2022 season. He really came into his own this year allowing no sacks and only 5 hurries all season. Against Georgia and Alabama combined, Wright allowed only one pressure and one hurry and the starting right tackle. While Wright broke out this season at a right tackle, it is still a possibility he could work his way back to being a left tackle in the NFL with some time and coaching.

Anderson Hardy: Appalachian State

  • 6’6″ / 290lbs
  • Averages One Penalty Every 164 Offensive Snaps
  • Averages One Sack every 138 Pass Blocking Snaps
  • Allows One Quarterback Hit Every 122 Pass Blocking Snaps
  • Allows One Quarterback Hurry Every 46 Pass Blocking Snaps
  • Allows One Quarterback Pressure Every 27 Pass Blocking Snaps

Hardy is another pure LT prospect.

Matt Goncalves: Pittsburgh

  • 6’6″ / 315lbs
  • Averages One Penalty Every 499 Offensive Snaps
  • Averages One Sack every 268 Pass Blocking Snaps
  • Allows One Quarterback Hit Every 101 Pass Blocking Snaps
  • Allows One Quarterback Hurry Every 40 Pass Blocking Snaps
  • Allows One Quarterback Pressure Every 26 Pass Blocking Snaps

Goncalves is an extremely disciplined swing tackle prospect. Playing over 500 career snaps at left tackle, over 800 snaps at right tackle, and even over 40 snaps at left guard, he can provide extreme value to a team that values versatile linemen up front. He is perhaps the most consistent tackle prospect eligable for the draft never allowing more than 8 hurries a season all 3 years at Pitt.

Javon Foster: Missouri

  • 6’5″ / 319lbs
  • Averages One Penalty Every 163 Offensive Snaps
  • Averages One Sack every 150 Pass Blocking Snaps
  • Allows One Quarterback Hit Every 210 Pass Blocking Snaps
  • Allows One Quarterback Hurry Every 39 Pass Blocking Snaps
  • Allows One Quarterback Pressure Every 27 Pass Blocking Snaps

Ryan Hayes: Michigan

  • 6’7″ / 305lbs
  • Averages One Penalty Every 339 Offensive Snaps
  • Averages One Sack every 237 Pass Blocking Snaps
  • Allows One Quarterback Hit Every 118 Pass Blocking Snaps
  • Allows One Quarterback Hurry Every 33 Pass Blocking Snaps
  • Allows One Quarterback Pressure Every 23 Pass Blocking Snaps

Berhalter and the USMNT:

As a player, Berhalter was a very defensive defender, which shows in his coaching style.

His whole game plan relies on limiting the other team’s chances, keeping possession, dictating the pace (slow and methodical), and attempting to capitalize on the few chances his teams are able to create a game.

Where the colossal flaw shows is when his teams concede the first goal. His whole game plan consists of dictating the pace of the game by slowing it down, and when you concede the first goal, that has to change. When the United States goes down, Berhalter seems lost and doesn’t know how to change the pace of play from his “conservatively and methodically trying to find a chance while keeping possession as much as possible” to “pushing the pace to get the equalizing goal.”

No matter the score, even when the USMNT is down, the team plays like they are ahead by a goal or two.

Berhalter’s scheme banks on a 0-0 draw or a 1-0 win; that’s just how he wants to play, and in the mind of a defender, that’s an excellent result to him and how soccer should be played.

For example, (1/30) against Canada, the USA conceded a goal in the first 7 minutes, and I personally didn’t see that sense of urgency to score an equalizer until around the 85th minute.

Berhalter has to learn how to push the pace, which I’m not sure he knows how to do. Coaches can not always bank on scoring first or holding the other team to a 0-0 draw. Sometimes you fall behind, and you need to learn how to respond and turn up the pace.

Im not sure this style of play will work against competent teams who know how to score. I think that’s been shown multiple times under Berhalter. Yes, he has won some big matches, but the lack of creativity and offensive urgency has been his Achilles heel for a while now.

Greggs teams have one pace, slow, methodical, keeping possession for as long as possible. Sometimes that just won’t work, sometimes you need to push the pace and get a goal. I’m not sure he is capable of turning that switch.

I don’t trust this system in the World Cup against teams that have the ability to score and push the pace. I know we have the players to keep up with those teams; I’m just not sure the system Berhalter runs will allow us to keep up.

2021 NBA Underrated Prospects

PG/SG Josh Giddey – His ability to skip the ball to the other wing or corner to open shooters is uncanny. His 7.4 rebounds a game to go along with his 7.5 assists a game show a well-rounded skill set. Giddey signed with the Adelaide 36ers of the National Basketball League (NBL) as a part of the league’s Next Stars program to develop NBA draft prospects, and quickly became the youngest Australian in NBL history to record a triple-double. Giddey represented Australia at the 2019 FIBA Under-17 Oceania Championship in New Caledonia. He averaged 16.4 points, 7.4 rebounds, and five assists per game and was named to the All-Star Five after leading his team to a gold medal. Giddey became the youngest player to play for the Australian senior team since Ben Simmons in 2013.

PF/C Usman Garuba – One of the best defenders, if not the best defender in this class. Garuba helped Spain win a gold medal at the 2019 FIBA U18 European Championship. At the 2018 FIBA U16 European Championship in Novi Sad, Serbia, he averaged 16.3 points and 12.3 rebounds per game. Garuba won the ACB Best Young Player Award and was named to the ACB All-Young Players Team for his second straight season. He also earned EuroLeague Rising Star honors.

SG Cameron Thomas – Thomas had one of the most productive scoring seasons for a freshman in the SEC’s history. In July 2019 he was named Offensive Player of the Year in the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League after averaging a league-best 29.5 points per game. Thomas led all freshmen in the NCAA in scoring with 23.0 points per game, while also averaging 3.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game. He was named to the First Team All-SEC. Thomas is a bonafide scorer who has no reservations about any shot on the floor.

PG Jason Preston – The last two seasons in Athens, Preston put up 16.3 points a game, 6.7 rebounds, and 7.3 assists while making 39.9 percent of his threes. Was named First-team All-MAC and was the MAC Tournament MVP. Preston has the size and skill to play either guard spot and is one of the best passers in the draft.

2021 Fantasy Football Sleepers

David Montgomery

  • Had the second most Fantasy points of all running backs the last 6 weeks of the 2020 season
  • 7th Easiest SOS

J.K. Dobbins

  • Ravens lost Mark Ingram
  • Greg Roman, the team is working this off-season to expand 2nd year RB J.K. Dobbins’ role in the passing attack
  • Averaged 6.0 yards per carry in 2020 which was 3rd in the NFL
  • 15th SOS Rating

Raheem Mostert

  • Lost Jerick McKinnon, Tevin Coleman in 2020 (and Matt Breida in 2019)
  • Competition is Wayne Gallman, Trey Sermon and eventually Jeffrey Wilson
  • I see Mostert winning the starting job over all 3 other running backs
  • Easiest SOS

Najee Harris

  • The Steelers are a team that hasn’t been shy about giving running backs 18-plus touches per game with Mike Tomlin at the helm
  • You don’t draft a three-down back like Harris in the first round and put him in some timeshare
  • 5th easiest SOS

Carson Wentz

  • We’ve legitimately seen Wentz perform as a top-five fantasy quarterback in Frank Reich’s offense before
  • The Colts offensive line might be better than the one the Eagles had in the days he was in the MVP race
  • Wentz has posted QB1-type numbers in 44.1 percent of the games in his career, which ranks as the 16th best quarterback over the last 15 years
  • 7th easiest SOS

Ryan Tannehill

  • Tannehill became the starter of the Titans in Week 7 of 2019. Since that time, he’s tallied 575.3 fantasy points, which ranks third among quarterbacks
  • He’s finished with more fantasy points than Patrick Mahomes, Russell Wilson, Kyler Murray, and Deshaun Watson in the last 2 seasons
  • Juilo Jones only helps his Value
  • 22nd SOS rating

Matthew Stafford

  • Since 2011, Stafford has thrown for 4K yards 8 times with mostly awful Lions teams
  • Upgrades to offensive guru Sean McVay as his new head Coach
  • Jared Goff averaged 4,270 yards per season season under McVay
  • Stafford gets an upgrade from Detroit in almost every offensive position group
  • 9th easiest SOS

Brandon Aiyuk

  • Aiyuk will now turn into the Top Target in San Fran alongside Deebo Samuel
  • San Fran lost: Kendrick Bourne, Jerick McKinnon, Jordan Reed (Thats 1151 yards up for grabs and 7 touchdowns)
  • Aiyuk was the 49ers leading receiver in 2020 while only playing in 12 games
  • Easiest SOS

Brandin Cooks

  • 10th most Fantasy points of all Wide Receivers the last 6 weeks of the 2020 season
  • Texans lost Will Fuller V (The teams second leading receiver by far 879 and 8 Touchdowns up for grabs)
  • 24 SOS rating

Robby Anderson

  • Gets his old QB back from New York, Anderson and Darnold had a real connection in new york. And now under the guidance of Matt Rhule and Joe Brady that connection should be even stronger.
  • Panthers lost Curtis Samuel and Mike Davis this offseason (Thats 1124 yards and 5 touchdowns up for grabs)
  • 2nd easiest SOS

Cooper Kupp

  • There’s more to his game than what we’ve seen, and it’s possible that Matthew Stafford unlocks it. Of the eight deep targets he saw in 2020, just one was catchable.
  • The Rams lost both Josh Reynolds and Gerald Everett in 2020 (Thats 1035 yards and 3 touchdowns up for grabs)
  • 4th Easiest SOS

  • Was second among tight ends in yards per target in 2020

Tyler Higbee

  • Takes over as the clear TE1 in Los Agles with the dapartur of Gerald Everett
  • There’ve been six times over the course of Higbee’s career where he’s tallied more than 67 yards. Five of those games came at the end of the 2019 season when Gerald Everett was either out of the lineup or very limited.
  • Eliminating Everett’s targets and upgrading Higbee’s quarterback is the recipe for success
  • 29th SOS

Kyle Pitts

  • With the departure of Julio Jones opens up a much bigger role for the versatile TE/WR Pitts
  • He’s one of the most physically gifted tight ends to ever come out of the draft
  • Should have a huge role in Arthur Smiths new offense

Titans 2021 Draft Targets:

Draft Notes:

  • The Titans must get another quality receiver to start opposite of budding superstar A.J. Brown in order to truly realize this offense’s full firepower.
  • The team still needs to get another starting-caliber cornerback as the team is currently slated to start former second-round pick Kristian Fulton and recent free-agent signing, Kevin Johnson
  • The Titans still need to continue to improve the overall depth behind Dupree and Landry. It would be wise for them to try and hit on one or two of the talented pass rushers in this class
  • The Titans could also look to draft a tight end in this draft. While Firkser and Swaim are good players, they could use some extra help in filling the void left by Jonu Smith’s departure
  •  The Titans really need to add some depth to the Saftey position through the draft

  • CB
  • WR
  • TE
  • Offensive Line Depth
  • EDGE
  • Defensive Line Depth
