The Offense

Quarterbacks:

Marcus Mariota is the main quarterback for Tennessee and he never really felt comfortable. This year the offense is expecting a more open attack. The Titans now have Blaine Gabbert as the backup quarterback and chose Luke Falk, from Washington State, in the sixth round of the draft.

Running Backs:

Derrick Henry is the primary running back this year and will find Dion Lewis getting several carries for this unit. David Fluellen garners the third-string duties. This unit needs help.

Receivers:

The receiving corps hasn’t been successful for many seasons. they have been mediocre. Corey Davis and Taywan Taylor must be healthy and get the job done for this team to have success. Michael Campanaro was signed as a free agent.

Offensive Linemen:

Left tackle Taylor Lewan will be a stalwart while Jack Conklin may not be ready to start the year due to an ACL injury. Ben Jones continues at center and Quinton Spain and Josh Kline both are back.

The Defense

Defensive Linemen:

Jurrell Casey continues to be the captain of this unit. Also, DaQuan Jones has resigned and will man the other end of the line. Bennie Logan was acquired from the Chiefs and David King will get some time.

Linebackers:

Rashaan Evans was selected in the first round of the draft from Alabama to be paired with Wesley Woodyard at tackle. Will Compton was signed for depth and Brian Orakpo along with Derrick Morgan appear to have spots nailed down.

Secondary:

Malcolm Butler was signed as a free agent and is expected to help this unit tremendously. Logan Ryan and Adoree’ Jackson have shown improvement. Tye Smith and LeShaun Sims return to solidify this unit.

Special Teams

This is a group that is one of the best in football. ryan Succup will continue as the kicker and Brett Kern is the punter. Succup established a record 56 straight field goals inside the 50-yard line. Long snapper will Beau Brinkley is back and the return game will get several suitors to break big plays.
