Tennessee Titans Defensive Pre-Season Position Grades:

Defensive Line:

Jeffery Simmons, DaQuan Jones, Jack Crawford, Larrell Murchison, Jordan Williams, Matt Dickerson, Amani Bledsoe, Joey Ivie IV, Isaiah Mack, Teair Tart, Kobe Smith

Grade: C+

This is a very inexperienced group. Between these 11 players, they produced only 4.5 sacks and just 7 tackles for loss last season. The loss of Pro-Bowl defensive tackle Jurrell Casey really hurt the group’s grade in the end. I see this as an average defensive line in the NFL or maybe even slightly below average.

 

 

Inside Linebackers:

Rashaan Evans, Jayon Brown, Nick Dzubnar, David Long Jr., Nigel Harris, Cale Garrett

Grade: B+

The Titans have a very solid group of guys at Middle Linebacker. This is perhaps one of the most solid group of Linebackers in the AFC. Once again this core doesn’t have any “big names” but they do their job week in and week out.

 

 

Outside Linebackers/Edge Rushers:

Harold Landry, Vic Beasley Jr., Kamalei Correa, D’Andre Walker, Reggie Gilbert, Derick Roberson, Khaylan Kearse-Thomas

Grade: B

The Titans have a very exciting group at outside linebacker. Every player in this group can make plays and get after the Quarterback. With the addition of  Vic Beasley who was the NFL sack leader from 2016, and with D’Andre Walker coming back from injury, this should elevate this group to the next level this season.

 

 

Cornerbacks:

Adoree` Jackson, Malcolm Butler, Kristian Fulton, Johnathan Joseph, Tye Smith, Chris Milton, Kenneth Durden, Ibraheim Campbell, Chris Jackson

Grade B+

The loss of Logan Ryan hurts, but this new look Cornerback group is ready for 2020. With the addition of Kristian Fulton and Jonathan Joseph, the loss of Ryan shouldn’t be that big of a deal. Malcolm Butler who only played 9 games last season will also be returning to action. So if everyone stays healthy, it should be a very solid and impressive season for this Cornerback group.

 

 

Safties:

Kevin Byard, Kenny Vaccaro, Amani Hooker, Dane Cruikshank, Joshua Kalu, Kareem Orr

Grade: A

This group is the obvious strength of the Defense. The Titans have perhaps the best Saftey in all of football in Kevin Byard and his counterpart Kenny Vaccaro is also a very solid Saftey. The two backup Safties (Hooker and Cruikshank) are very capable of stepping in and being starters as well.

Tennessee Titans Offensive Pre-Season Position Grades:

 

Quarterback:

Ryan Tannehill, Logan Woodside, Cole McDonald

Grade: B+

Ryan Tannehill was arguably a top 5 quarterback last season. Leading the NFL in passer rating and yards per attempt while placing third in completion percentage and 9th in Adjusted Quarterback Rating. Logan Woodside and rookie Cole McDonald will fight it out for the backup role during the offseason. McDonald brings a lot of upside due to the fact he is only 21 and has been putting up some eye-opening numbers at the University of Hawaii over the past three seasons.

 

 

Running Back:

Derrick Henry, Darrynton Evans, Khari Blasingame, Dalyn Dawkins, David Fluellen, Cameron Scarlett, Senorise Perry, Shaun Wilson

Grade: A+

The Tennessee Titans have one of the best, if not the best Running Back core in the NFL. Having the NFL rushing leader should get an automatic A+.

 

 

Offensive Line:

Taylor Lewan, Rodger Saffold, Ben Jones, Nate Davis, Isaiah Wilson, Dennis Kelly, Ty Sambrailo, David Quessenberry, Avery Gennesy, Jamil Douglas, Daniel Munyer

Grade: B-

The Titans O-Line was a shaky unit last season. On one hand, they gave up up the third-most sacks in the league last season. On the other hand, they helped block for Derrick henry who was the leagues leading rusher last season. This line is good at one thing and one thing only, run blocking. If the unit can step up in the pass pro category they would be an Elite group.

 

 

Tight Ends:

Jonnu Smith, Anthony Firkser, MyCole Pruitt, Cole Herdman, Tommy Hudson, Parker Hesse

Grade: B

Jonnu Smith has really broken out these past two seasons establishing himself as a reliable starting Tight End. Anthony Firkser has been a very reliable backup these past two seasons, having only one drop in 44 Targets since 2018. MyCole Pruitt has been just as reliable, recording zero drops on 19 targets since 2018. This group doesn’t have any “big names”, but they are just about as reliable as it gets.

 

 

Wide Receivers:

Corey Davis, AJ Brown, Adam Humphries, Kalif Raymond, Trevion Thompson, Cody Hollister, Nick Westbrook, Kristian Wilkerson, Mason Kinsey, Rashard Davis, Cameron Batson

Grade: B

After the top three guys, there are a lot of unknowns. Davis is a former top 5 pick with amazing hands and a huge catch radius. AJ Brown is coming off a monster year and will be looking to build on his production from last season. Humphries is the reliable slot receiver that was injured a good portion of last season and will look to get more involved in the offense this year. Unless someone steps up big this season, the Titans receiving core is right at average or maybe a little above.

 

Tennessee Titans Backup Plan:

With Jadeveon Clowney still on the open market, there is a lot of speculation of where he is going to end up. Right now it’s a 45/45/10 split between the Titans, Seahawks, and Browns. It seems to be down to the Titans and Seahawks with the latest rumor being the Seahawks just offered the star pass-rusher a 16 million dollar per year deal. The Titans general manager John Robinson said on a local radio show this morning that “nothing is imminent” between the team and Jadeveon Clowney in terms of a contract. So let’s say the Tennessee Titans fail to land Clowney, what would the next move be? Well, let’s look at team needs, with the departure of Jurell Casey, Austin Johnson, and Cam Wake earlier this offseason there is a glaring need at Pass Rush and Interior Defensive Line. The loss of Casey hurts the Titans in a few areas, Casey was a dominate player in the run game as well as being able to rush the passer. In 14 games last season Casey had 5 sacks, 5 tackles for loss, as well as 10 Quarterback hits. So can the Titans find a replacement on the Free Agency market that can provide the same amount of production that Casey left behind? Let’s look at some options.

The first name that comes to mind is All-Pro nose tackle Damon “Snacks” Harrison. Harrison is a prolific run-stopper and is exactly what the Titans need upfront. With the addition of “Snacks”, the Titans would automatically become a top tier run-stopping team and have the pieces on the edge to do some major damage in the pass-rushing category as well. In 15 games last season Harrison had 2 sacks, 3 tackles for loss, as well as 2 Quarterback Hits. The addition of Damon Harrison would be an upgrade over Casey in the run game, but a major downgrade in the Pass rushing category.

 

Another player still on the open market is Probowl defensive tackle, Mike Daniels. Formally of the Detroit Lions, Daniels would bring a lot of energy to the Titans front line while also being a great defensive anchor. He doesn’t provide as much run-stopping expertise as Damon Harrison, but he provides a bit more of a pass rush form the Defensive tackle spot. Daniels has struggled with injuries the past two seasons and hasn’t played over 10- games since his Pro-Bowl season in 2017 where he put up 5 sacks, 10 tackles for loss, and 14 Quarterback Hits. Daniels would be a great piece too big in to replace Casey, they are very similar players and I know he would fit in quite nicely.

 

If the Titans fail to land Clowney there are still some very good Edge rushers on the open market.

The most obvious option would be Everson Griffen. The 4-time Pro-Bowler would immediately slide into a starting role with the Titans and bring a much-needed tenacity to the edge-rushing role.  In 15 games last season Griffen racked up 8 sacks, 11 Tackles for loss, and 24 Quarterback hits. Bringing in Griffen on a one year deal would make complete sense for the Titans if they miss out on the Clowney sweepstakes.

 

Another option would be to bring in Markus Golden. Golden is more of a speed rusher, compared to Griffen who uses more of his power is pass-rushing scenarios. Golden really came into his own this past season racking up 10 sacks, 12 tackles for loss, and 27 Quarterback hits. Golden would be a great addition to the Titans pass-rushing core and would have an immediate impact.

What should the Titans Do?

This Tennessee Titans off-season has been a whirlwind. The Titans kicked off their off-season by resigning the supposed Quarterback of the future Ryan Tannehill to a four year 118 million dollar deal, followed by locking up superstar running back Derrick Henry for the next year agreeing to the franchise tender of 10.2 million dollars. After locking up the two biggest offensive pieces they turned to the defensive side of the ball bringing in Vic Beasley Jr. on a one year deal, signing veteran defensive tackle Jack Crawford, they brought back edge rusher Kamalei Correa and signed linebacker/special team ace Nick Dzubnar. Then came a move nobody expected, the Titans general manager John Robinson made a shocking trade that sent fan favorite defensive tackle Jurrell Casey to Denver in exchange for a 7th round pick. The trade was a salary dump that saved the Titans over 10 million dollars in cap space and freed up the money that most fans believe has been used for an offer to throw at Jadeveon Clowney. But is that the correct decision? Should the Titans go all-in on a player that hasn’t produced over 9.5 sacks in a single season his whole career? When you take a look at the Titans roster there are some major holes on defense, especially after the Casey trade.  Currently, the Titans starting defensive tackle would be newly acquired Jack Crawford who is a solid backup but is not starter material. The Cornerback rotation also took a huge hit in Free agency. The Titans will be losing Tye Smith, LeShaun Sims, and Tramaine Brock with the possibility of losing Logan Ryan as well. The Titans were already shaky against the pass last year and losing all of their Cornerback depth won’t help anything. So the real question here is, do you spend big on Clowney and bring in a superstar pass-rusher or spread out the remaining cap space spending it on multiple players to fill holes in the depth chart. Rumor has it Logan Ryan wants around 10 million dollars per year, a great price for the caliber of player he is, that would leave the titans around 5-8 million dollars to play around with. So let’s look at who is available to fill the hole that Casey left behind. The first name that comes to mind is All-Pro nose tackle Damon “Snacks” Harrison. Harrison is a prolific run-stopper and is exactly what the Titans need upfront. With the addition of “Snacks”, the Titans would automatically become a top tier run-stopping team and have the pieces on the edge to do some major damage in the pass-rushing category as well. Another player still on the open market is Probowl defensive tackle, Mike Daniels. Formally of the Detroit Lions, Daniels would bring great energy to the Titans front line while also being a great defensive anchor. He doesn’t provide as much run-stopping expertise as Damon Harrison, but he provides a bit more of a pass rush form the Defensive tackle spot. So John Robinson has a big decision on his hands, does he go all-in on Clowney or play it safe and spread out the cash, Only time will tell.

Tennessee Titans 2020 Free Agent Targets:

Tennessee Titans Needs:

 

Kicker

Reason: The Tennessee Titans just released their long time kicker Ryan Succop after a shaky performance last season.

 

Right Tackle

Reason: The Titans will not have enough cap space this season to bring back Jack Conklin who has been a very solid starter for them the past 4 seasons. So this leaves them with a big hole at Tackle that they can either fill in free agency or the Draft.

 

Tight End

Reason: Most teams would be fine with Jonu Smith and Anthon firsker as their one and two tight ends. Tennessee runs a lot of 2 Tight End personnel and with Delanie Walker being released they are in need of a reliable Tight End to fill the TE1/TE2 position.

 

A Fast Pass Catching Running Back

Reason: Dion Lewis is out, saving the team 4 million in cap space. With Lewis gone they are in desperate need of a backup for Derrick Henry who can step in on 3rd downs and pass-catching situations.

 

Pass Rushing Outside Linebacker/EDGE

Reason: With the likelihood of Kamalei Correa leaving in Free Agency and the Release of Cam Wake, the Titans are in need of some edge-rushers this offseason.

 

Backup Middle Linebacker

Reason: With Darren Bates and Wesly Woodyard leaving in Free Agency the Titans are sure to be looking around for a great role-playing Linebacker to bring in the offseason.

 

 

Free Agent Targets:

Kicker:

Dan Bailey – Bailey was widely regarded as the leagues’ best kicker from 2012-2015 kicking an astonishing 91.7% of his field-goal attempts and making 100% of his extra-point attempts. But after having a down year in 2017 the Cowboys released Bailey and he was soon picked up by the Minnesota Vikings where he continued to struggle up until last year. In 2019 Bailey looked like his old self again making 93.1% of his field-goal attempts. If the Titans can manage to snag Bailey for a decent price he would be an amazing pickup.

Age: 32                                                                                                                                              Estimated Salary: 2 Million Dollars Per Season

 

Kai Forbath – Forbath has been a solid kicker in his 8 year NFL career. Playing for seven teams in eight seasons he has made over 86% of his field-goal attempts and 93.8% of his extra-point attempts.  Last season was his best performance so far hitting 10 for 10 in field-goal attempts and making 100% of his extra points for the Dallas Cowboys.

Age: 32                                                                                                                                              Estimated Salary: 1.2 Million Dollars Per Season

 

Greg Zuerlein –  Zuerlein has perhaps the strongest leg in the NFL, hitting 50 plus yard field goals routinely. He does have some accuracy problems hitting only 82% of his field-goal attempts throughout his 8 year NFL career. On the other hand “Greg the Leg” is as about as consistent as it gets with extra points knocking through an impressive 97.8% in his career.

Age: 32                                                                                                                                                Estimated Salary: 2.2 Million Dollars Per Season

 

____________________________________

Right Tackle:

LaAdrian Waddle – Waddle would be a solid option at Right Tackle. He is Two Time Super Bowl champion with the New England Patriots and started in 28 games for them between the 2015-2018 seasons.  He signed a contract with the Bills in 2019 but got injured in training camp and was put on IR ending his season.

Age: 28                                                                                                                                              Estimated Salary:  2 Million Dollars Per Season

 

T. J. Clemmings – Clemmings is a very versatile Lineman, playing multiple positions along the offensive line. In the 2015 Draft, Clemmings was graded a likely first-round selection but fell to the fourth round due to a report that stated he had a stress fracture in his foot. Clemmings tied a franchise rookie record by starting all 16 games for the Vikings.

Age: 28                                                                                                                                              Estimated Salary: 1 Million Dollars Per Season

 

Demar Dotson – Dotson is a very consistent Tackle. Five out of the past six years he has had over a 70.0 PFF rating and hasn’t given up over 6 sacks in any season played. Dotson has started 105 games for the Buccaneers in his 11 year NFL career.

Age: 34                                                                                                                                              Estimated Salary: 3 Million Dollars Per Season

 

Marcus Gilbert –  Gilbert has had over a 75 PFF Rating four out of the last five years. Gilbert was the definition of durable for the Pittsburgh Steelers for 2011-2018 Starting 87 Games out of 88. Gilbert was traded to the Arizona Cardinals in 2019 and was immediately placed on IR and didn’t play for them all season.

Age: 32                                                                                                                                                Estimated Salary: 4 Million Dollars Per Year

 

______________________________________

Tight End: 

Tyler Eifert – Eifert is a top tier talent who just can’t stay healthy. Eifert has played one full 16 game season in his six-year NFL career. Eifert, when healthy is a big-play threat and averages 11.6 yards per catch and ran a 4.68 forty yard dash at the 2013 NFL Combine. He was selected to the 2015 Pro-Bowl and won the John Mackey Award in college as the Nations Best Tight End.
