The folks at Pro Football Focus ranked all of the rosters in the NFL (In$ider). For each team they listed the 5 best players and the 5 starters that should be upgraded. They listed Jurrell Casey, Derrick Morgan, Kendall Wright, Delanie Walker, Jason McCourty as the Titans best 5 players. That's a pretty good list.
The 5 starters they listed that should be upgraded are Justin Hunter, Brian Schwenke, Byron Stingily, Coty Sensabaugh, Michael Griffin. That's a tough list to argue with...well other than the fact that they list Stingily as a starter. He won't be.
Here were the rest of their comments on the roster:
Few teams are leaning on rookies as much as the Titans heading into 2015. Quarterback Marcus Mariota obviously has the potential to transform the offense, but he's an unknown quantity at this point, and fellow rookie wide receivers Dorial Green-Beckham and Tre McBride, and running back David Cobb, all figure to play big roles out of necessity.
Casey is the only star on defense, but he does have several good players alongside him, especially if Brian Orakpo can stay healthy. Heading into his third season, the Titans need a big step forward from cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson, who allowed six touchdowns last season and a passer rating of 110.8 when targeted.
I sure hope the Titans aren't counting on BWW to take a huge step forward.
So what do you think about their lists or the comments they made on the roster?
