Breaking down the Titans’ 2014 pre-draft visits and workouts

Before the Tennessee Titans spend a high draft pick on a player, the chances are good they either brought him to St. Thomas Sports Park for a visit or had a private workout with him,. When I did a version of this post in 2012, first-round pick Kendall Wright, second-round pick Zach Brown, and third-round […]

Titans draft preview by position: Defense

After covering what the Titans might do at each position on offense yesterday, I now turn my attention to the same exercise for the defensive side of the ball. Before I launch into the position by position part of this post, a couple notes. First, as I noted in yesterday’s entry, this is intended as […]

Titans draft preview by position: Offense

It’s draft week. By this point, I think of it almost as an annual tradition. For the third year in a row, I will kick off draft week by looking at which positions I believe the Titans are likely to target in the upcoming NFL draft. Both years I have done this series, the positions […]

Filling out the pre-draft Titans roster

In an April 8 radio appearance, Ken Whisenhunt was asked if the Titans needed additional running backs for depth purposes. In response to the question, he noted that he normally went into training camp with eight running backs or fullbacks, sometimes nine. That got me to thinking about where the Titans’ roster stood, compared to […]

Titans sign WR Brian Robiskie

The Tennessee Titans announced today they agreed to terms with veteran wide receiver Brian Robiskie. Per the team, it is a one-year deal. Robiskie spent part of the 2013 season with the Atlanta Falcons, from whom he played one game. He originally broke into the NFL back in 2009 with the Cleveland Browns. The Browns […]

Some thoughts on the draft

Pardon the lack of new posts. With the draft pushed back two weeks, I’ve been using the extra time to watch draft prospects and take my own notes on them, notes which aren’t really worthy of being elevated into a scouting report in their own right. I’ll be cracking up the draft-related content over the […]

Phillips on Rivers

How Shaun Phillips sacked the passer in 2013

To get a better idea of what the Titans got when they signed Shaun Phillips, I decided to watch the 10.0 sacks he had playing for the Broncos in 2013. While the Broncos are more of a 4-3 than I expect the Titans to be, I still think this was a useful exercise. Philips played […]

McCluster 2011

Analyzing Dexter McCluster, running back

When the Titans made Dexter McCluster their first signing of free agency this offseason, I noted he had played both wide receiver and running back in the NFL, and noted Whisenhunt’s challenge was to make him a more effective player than he had been. Since then, the Titans have indicated McCluster will at least start off […]

How the Titans were penalized in 2013

NFL Game Rewind doesn’t want me to write about Dexter McCluster’s play as a running back in 2011, so you’re getting a belated data dump post instead. Yes, following on a similar post I did for 2012, it’s a look at how the Titans were penalized in 2013. The Titans were neither penalized a lot […]

Reviewing past Tennessee Titans drafts: 2008

Each April, Football Outsiders reviews the draft that was six years ago, and I follow suit over here with a look at what the Titans did that same draft. The backstory to that is slightly more complicated (the first draft of the first draft review I did was before (a) Football Outsiders existed and (b) […]

Head coach Ken Whisenhunt’s history of drafting offense

The Titans have a new head coach, Ken Whisenhunt. Whisenhunt has been a head coach before. Whisenhunt will be heavily involved on the offensive side of the ball, including calling the plays. Whisenhunt in his previous head coaching stint was heavily involved in the offense, too. The draft is coming up. Thus, I wondered what […]

Notes on the Titans

More in-depth looks at Dexter McCluster, running back, and the other new Titans are coming, eventually, as are more draft thoughts, but in the meantime here are the Titans-related things that have caught my eye recently: 1.Kamerion Wimbley recently renegotiated his contract. Of the two recent contract restructure (I’ll get to the second next), his […]
