Titans draft preview by position

Beyond breaking down the visits like I did in my previous post, another of the staples of my pre-draft coverage has been a breakdown of the Titans’ chances of drafting a player at each position. In the past, I’ve done separate posts for offense and for defense (links to 2014 versions), giving an estimate of […]


Breaking down the Titans’ (reported) pre-draft visits

Before the Tennessee Titans spend a high pick on a player, chances are very good they brought him to St. Thomas Sports Park on a private visit. As I noted last year, general manager Ruston Webster has previously declared the importance of visits (and workouts) in learning about a prospective high pick before using a […]

2015 Tennessee Titans offseason positional analysis: ST

Finally done. After concluding the defense with a look at the safeties, the final stop on our trip position by position around the Tennessee Titans is a look at special teams. As I now mention every time I do this positional analysis, special teams consists of five separate and distinct elements, albeit with overlapping skills. These […]

One more after this one! Our final defensive stop on the defensive half of our trip around the Tennessee Titans position by position as we head deeper into the offseason, after defensive line, outside linebacker, inside linebacker, and cornerback, is a look at the safety position.

2015 Tennessee Titans offseason positional analysis: CB

After defensive line, outside linebacker, and inside linebacker, our next stop on our position by position trip around the Tennessee Titans as we head deep into the offseason is a look at the cornerbacks. My preseason positional analysis for the Titans’ prospects at cornerbacks in 2014 included references to panic level one, panic level two, […]

2015 Tennessee Titans offseason positional analysis: ILB

Let’s see, if I get ILB up now, CB up Monday night, S up Tuesday during the day, and ST up Tuesday night, I could write my two pre-draft posts. That works. After defensive line and outside linebacker, our next stop around the defensive half of the Tennessee Titans as we head deeper into the […]

Titans add WR Hakeem Nicks

The Titans stepped into the bargain basement part of free agency again today, signing veteran receiver Hakeem Nicks. Nicks went one pick before Kenny Britt in the 2009 NFL draft, and the Titans were reportedly fairly interested in him. He started his career with the Giants and when healthy was a highly productive downfield receiver. […]

2015 Tennessee Titans offseason positional analysis: OLB

Better late than never is my motto. Going to crank these last few out before the draft, really. After defensive line, our second stop on the defensive side of the ball on our trip around the Tennessee Titans as we head (deep) into the offseason is outside linebacker. When I did the DL positional analysis, […]

2015 Tennessee Titans offseason positional analysis: DL

Concluding the offensive half of our trip around the Tennessee Titans position by position with a look at the center position as we head (deeper) into the offseason, we (finally) continue with the defensive line. When I did the offseason positional analysis, I clumped all the defensive linemen together, rather than splitting out the (large) group […]

Titans preseason schedule announced

Life continues apace. More detailed content later this week, as my schedule and need to do other things permit. In the interim, I strongly recommend this analysis of Justin Hunter by Matt Harmon, part of his very interesting Reception Perception series. The NFL preseason schedule was announced last week. The Titans are slated to play […]

Titans notes-Stingily, Harris, Stevens

Life continues apace. Blogging progresses accordingly. Since I last updated the status of things, the Titans have re-signed two of their own players from last year and restructured the contract of a third. The first move came when they re-signed offensive tackle Byron Stingily. The Titans told me all they needed to about what they […]

Titans sign CB Perrish Cox

The Titans on Saturday bolstered their secondary by agreeing to terms with cornerback Perrish Cox, formerly of the San Francisco 49ers. It was reportedly a three-year deal totaling $15 million. Cox, who turned 28 in January, saw the most extensive action of his NFL career in 2014. He started 14 games and played 940 defensive […]

Orakpo Signing May Help Spur Ticket Sales for Titans Upon Schedule Release

The Tennessee Titans had another poor season this year. Finishing with a 2-14 record, they have found themselves with the second pick in the draft in 2015. The Titans ranked towards the bottom of the NFL in most major statistical categories, and their quarterback situation continues to be a mystery. Additionally, the Titans gave up […]

Titans re-sign Klug, Morgan, Succop, add Fasano, Orakpo in busy day

The Tennessee Titans had not been one of the most active teams early in free agency. That changed Friday, as they re-signed three of their own players and added two more from other teams. The re-signings included defensive lineman Karl Klug, outside linebacker Derrick Morgan, and kicker Ryan Succop. The additions included tight end Anthony […]
