Titans 53-man roster prediction as training camp opens

It’s time for the latest installment of an annual tradition. Each season, the day the Tennessee Titans players report to training camp, I attempt to predict which players they will keep after the cutdown all the way to 53. Some years this goes kind of okay,  while in other years I end up on quixotic quests […]

More on Marcus Mariota

So, yeah, the Titans took a shiny new quarterback with the second overall pick and I haven’t written a post specifically about him yet. Time for that to change.   What makes Marcus Mariota so fascinating a pick for the Titans is taking him is taking him was simultaneously part of the ideal and nightmare […]


Breaking down the Titans’ 2015 UDFA signings

Programming note: I’m back. Posts TBD, probably focusing on the rookies or big free agents, likely every day this week, though Thursday and the start of training camp will bring my annual guaranteed to be wrong 53-man roster prediction. Positional analyses are slated to begin next Monday, August 3 with the quarterbacks; like Thursday’s post, that’s […]

Tennessee Titans Near Bottom Of League In Miles Traveled For 2015 NFL Season

The Tennessee Titans have plenty to worry about after tying the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the worst record in the NFL last season at 2-14. But after nabbing Marcus Mariota as their future quarterback with the No. 2 overall selection in the 2015 NFL Draft, the Titans have one less thing to worry about, with […]


Recapping the Tennessee Titans’ 2015 draft picks

I’ll have a broad-scale overview that looks at the draft more conceptually later this week. In the interim, here is a basic overview of the players the Tennessee Titans selected in the 2015 NFL draft, very brief summaries of why the Titans chose them and why they might not work out, and my guess at […]

Titans conclude draft with OLB Deiontrez Mount, C Andy Gallik, WR Tre McBride

Oops, I thought I got up a post on these guys from my phone while hanging out in the media workroom. Apparently not. Well, this post is better than that would have been. The Tennessee Titans rounded out the 2015 NFL draft by selecting Louisville outside linebacker/defensive end Deiontrez Mount with their sixth-round pick, 177th […]

Titans select RB David Cobb in fifth round

With their fifth round pick, 138th overall, the Titans selected running back David Cobb out of Minnesota. Cobb was a very productive back for the Golden Gophers. He’s a big back, almost 230 pounds, so competition for Shonn Greene and Antonio Andrews in that role in the committee with Bishop Sankey. He only ran a […]

Titans add DL Angelo Blackson, FB Jalston Folwer in fourth round

The Tennessee Titans had two of the first nine picks in the fourth round of the 2015 NFL draft and held on to both of them. They used the first pick of the day, 100th overall, on Auburn defensive lineman Angelo Blackson. They used the ninth pick of the round, 108th overall, acquired from the […]

Titans select OT Jeremiah Poutasi in third round

With their third-round pick, #66 overall, the Tennessee Titans selected Utah offensive tackle Jeremiah Poutasi. It was recently reported Poutasi had a private workout for the Titans. I haven’t had a chance to watch him yet. He was 6’5″ and 335 pounds at the combine and fits the same basic mold of the offensive tackles […]

Titans trade back, select Dorial Green-Beckham

The Tennessee Titans began Day 2 of the 2015 NFL draft by trading out of the 33rd overall pick, dealing it to the New York Giants for their second-round pick, 40th overall, their fourth-round pick, 108th overall, and their seventh-round pick, 245th overall. With that 40th overall pick, the Titans selected wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham. […]

Titans day 2 draft outlook

The Titans are currently on the clock, with the first pick of the second day of the 2015 NFL draft, #33 overall. What might they do with that pick? Let’s go to the oracle of what the Titans will do in the draft, general manager Ruston Webster. From his pre-draft press conference: “I would say […]

Titans stand pat at #2, take Marcus Mariota

There seemed to be plenty of interest, but months of trade talk ended up with the Titans sticking with the second overall pick and taking Marcus Mariota. The Hawaii product was a phenomenally productive college passer who faces a bit of a learning curve in adjusting to Ken Whisenhunt’s preferred style of quarterbacking. It’s not […]


My 2015 seven-round Titans mock

I’ve broken down the Titans visits. I’ve gone through the likelihood they choose a player at each position. It’s draft day, which means it’s time for me to do my draft day annual tradition: taking somebody else’s seven-round mock and picking who I would pick for the Titans at that slot given how that draft […]
