Notes

 

  • They had to look to the future when drafting Marcus Mariota with the second overall pick in the draft, but the former Oregon signal caller doesn’t have a lot to work with at wide receiver at this point. Kendall Wright has topped 1,000 yards just once in his three year career, but is the type of receiver that should do well from the slot with Mariota. On the outside we have Harry Douglas and Justin Hunter, with Hunter failing to turn his potential into anything more through the first two seasons of his career. They drafted Dorial Green-Beckham and Tre McBride, and both will be pushing Douglas and Hunter to produce early or be pushed aside by youth.

 

  • Andy Levitre and Chance Warmack have both shown themselves to be above average, while Taylor Lewan looked good, particularly as a run blocker, in his rookie year. The same can’t be said for the other two starters, with Brian Schwenke disappointing in 11 starts in 2014. At right tackle, the loss of Michael Oher might be seen as addition by subtraction, but new starter Byron Stingily struggled in pass protection, allowing 14 total pressures in four starts to end the season.

 

  • The signing of Brian Orakpo, and re-signing of Derek Morgan, gives the Titans a good pair of edge rushers to get after the quarterback. Playing outside linebacker for the first time in 2014, Morgan still looked good as a pass rusher, finishing the year with 49 total hurries. Orakpo arrives from Washington having played just 401 snaps, having his season cut short in Week 7. He did however grade positively both against the run and as a pass rusher, which will boost the Titans defense in 2015.

 

  • The defensive line boasts just one player who we see as above average or better, but Jurrell Casey’s ability to get after the quarterback from his 3-4 defensive end spot is impressive. His +21.2 grade in that regard was third behind only J.J. Watt and Sheldon Richardson, registering 51 total pressures from 487 pass rushing snaps, good for a Pass Rushing Productivity Rating of 8.1.

    You all said you wouldn’t hold a player’s injury history against him when I comes to these ratings but I feel you are doing this by dropping Orakpo from HQ to Good

      double digit sacks in 2 of 6 years is good, not great, seems correct

    It’s unfathomable that Andy Levitre is rated as a good player. He had the 2nd most number of total penalties on the team last year and was regularly beaten or even knocked back into the quarterback in the backfield. Beat writers Kuharsky & Wyatt both agree that he has been a huge disappointment as an expensive free agent signing in 2013. If not for his excessive contract, he would be a prime candidate to be cut due to his poor play.

      ur wildn … the revolving door at QB is the reason andy always has to bugg out. everyone knows when titans have stability at QB the o-line is going to fall in line.. andy is good hes just getting a bad wrap cuz check down Charlie comes in the game throwing check downs on every play …… we needed a qb and we got one end of story

  • Dalen Erickson

    Mark my words on this one: If he stays healthy Zach Brown will be an all pro. Unbelievable athleticism for the position. I think only Shazier is faster assuming his combine speed translates to the field. The guy is an animal in all aspects of his game. If he can master the mental aspect he will be a beast

  • Dalen Erickson

    Are we sure that DQ Jones will start over Klug and Ropati? Im surprised by that but Im sure you guys have good reason for putting him there.

  • Dalen Erickson

    I had no idea how good Morgan was in coverage until I learned it from PFF. I always thought he was a better fit for 4-3 but as it turns out he is a text book 3-4 OLB

  • Ryan Golding

    how is perish cox average with 5 interceptions ….. that’s dumb should be high quality or good at least .. makes no sense.
    this site id dumber than the people who design it.

  • Ryan Golding

    perish cox had 5 INTERCEPTIONSSSSSSSS omg……… I hate when they under rate people who do great ughhhhhhh

  • Ryan Golding

    then they got people with 3 and 4 picks at high quality and elite ……but 5 picks ? oh ur average …they should check their notes they messed up on that one

  • Ryan Golding

    taylor lewan is good … but I guess the injury puts him average … doesn’t matter what color u put over em their still gonna go HAM

    • Anthony Joseph Gomes

      what about andy levitre’s claim that he was injured and couldnt play anymore andthen gets traded for a 6th round draft pick after whisenhunt(then coach) praises him for his professionalism(sarcasm?) . andy missed numerous blocks in the preseason game against atlanta that got “stupid” mariota sacked several times. and what finally becomes of andy levitre you wonder? why within a week he is the starting guard for the ATLANTA FALCONS!!!!!!!!!! LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!! they still owe him 20 million on his contract too.

  • Carlos

    Ahem, so after getting demoted to 2nd string and then traded for a conditional 7th, does PFF still consider Levitre “above average”? SMDH
