Evan Silva looks at the top 100 players that will be available this afternoon.
Friend of MCM Radio, Evan Silva, has released a list of the top 100 free agents available with predictions on where each of them will end up. Obviously the predictions are mostly just guess work, but Silva does a ton of film watching, so his opinions on the players are really good. He predicts three of the top 100 will end up with the Titans. His breakdown of those guys:
16. Guard Andy Levitre -- The top guard on the market -- just ahead of Louis Vasquez -- Levitre turns 27 in May after grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 9 overall guard last season, and first in pass protection. As of March 1, the Bills hadn't even made Levitre a contract offer. The Titans are in good shape under the cap and annually desperate for interior offensive line help.
He predicts a 6-year $48 million contract.
While that is a lot of money for a guard, that is a good deal for this team. They are desperate for an upgrade at the position, and Levitre would bring a lot of flexibility and versatility to the interior line.
22. Defensive end Osi Umenyiora -- A younger if slightly less explosive version of John Abraham, Umenyiora has at least six sacks in eight straight seasons but is better suited as a situational rusher at this stage. He's coming off a six-sack, two-forced fumble campaign. At age 31, Umenyiora should command two- and three-year offers. In Nashville, he'd give beleaguered coordinator Jerry Gray a rotational end to help keep Derrick Morgan and Kamerion Wimbley fresh.
Silva predicts three years $20 million.
Osi would be nice, but I would much rather have Michael Bennett.
97. Defensive tackle Sammie Lee Hill -- Losing Sen'Derrick Marks, the Titans pursued Ricky Jean-Francois over the weekend. Jean-Francois remains in play for Tennessee, but 329-pound Hill would give Jerry Gray's defense a wider-bodied presence in front of Colin McCarthy.
The Titans are going to add a beefy DT at some point. Sammie would fit that bill.
