Who, what, when: Breaking down my off. depth chart

Don McPeak-US PRESSWIRE

My guide to who I think will be starting at each position in each scenario.

I know all the talk right now is just guess work and predictions, but I figure if it is time to speculate, I'm going to do it right.

These are my guess at who starts where at every scenario on offense.

*Note the starting OL and QB will always be the same: Roos, Levitre, (Velasco or Schwenke), Warmack, Stewart, and Locker

Base (three WRs, one TE, one RB)

Three WRs: Kenny Britt, Kendall Wright, and Justin Hunter

One TE: Delanie Walker

One RB: Chris Johnson

When it is used: The ideal package to run to figure out what the defense is trying to do. The line has the ability to run well using only one TE for support. However, they aren't pigeon-holed into running the ball. Hunter will add a distinct vertical element that will keep safeties from sitting in the middle of the field.

Run Heavy: (two WRs, one TE, one Flex, one RB)

Two WRs: Kenny Britt, Kendal Wright

One TE: Delanie Walker

One Flex (TE/FB): Taylor Thompson

One RB: Chris Johnson

When it is used: Best used when a defense has been going small to try to fluster Locker by showing a variety of coverages. This is a simple ground and pound package that can give Locker simple reads to settle him down.

Pass Heavy:(Four WRs, one RB)

Four WRs: Kenny Britt, Kendall Wright, Justin Hunter, Damian Williams

One RB: Chris Johnson

When it is used: If the Titans want CJ in space the best way may be to send Hunter deep and run the other WRs in mid-level cross patterns and give Locker the option to call a RB draw, QB run, or a deep pass with CJ as a dump off.

Goal Line/Short Distance option 1: (two WRs, two TEs, one RB)

Two WRs: Kenny Britt, Justin Hunter

Two TEs: Craig Stevens, Delanie Walker

One RB: Shonn Greene

When it is used: When Tennessee wants to test press corners by having two big WRs with jumping ability, or when the Titans want to keep an extra LB out of the defensive package.

Goal Line/Short Distance option 2: (one WRs, two TEs, one Flex, one RB)

One WR: Kenny Britt

Two TEs: Craig Stevens, Delanie Walker

One Flex: Taylor Thompson

One RB: Shonn Greene

When it is used: If Tennessee wants to play big boy, SEC level ground and pound then having The Crusher A.K.A Taylor Thompson giving a lead block would be ideal. Also, it almost guarantees no inside safety help vs Britt on a quick slant.
