OFFENSIVE MVP: Kendall Wright
Kendall Wright had plenty of detractors when the Titans made the former Baylor wide receiver their 2012 first-round and 20th overall draft pick, but he ended up sharing the NFL rookie lead with 64 catches in his debut season.
Even so, there were still those who wondered whether Wright could become more than just a slot receiver, whose perceived lack of speed was a hindrance to becoming a deep threat. Yes, he could catch the short pass and turn and run, but could he stretch the field? The Titans figured that's why they had veteran receivers Kenny Britt and Nate Washington, plus the addition of second-round pick Justin Hunter, a trio compiled to allow Wright to flourish as the team's top possession receiver, which is exactly what happened.
Wright had a team-high 94 receptions -- best among all NFL second-year wide receivers and seventh-best overall -- and 1,079 receiving yards. He either led or tied for the team lead in receptions in 11 games.
