PLAYERS: Taylor Lewan
TEAMS: Tennessee Titans
The tape doesn't lie when it comes to new Tennessee Titans offensive lineman Taylor Lewan. Lewan is a talented player who could develop into a very good offensive lineman. Unfortunately, inconsistent technique and a sometimes bad attitude oftentimes tend to overshadow the talent.Reaction was mixed when the Tennessee Titans selected former Michigan offensive tackle Taylor Lewan with the #11 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. It wasn’t just the off the field issues that had people scratching their heads over the Lewan pick. Although talented, Lewan has football issues that raise some concerns as well. from NGN

Tennessee Titans’ 5 Most Valuable Players in 2014

As the Tennessee Titans embark on their first season under Ken Whisenhunt, veteran players will be vital in making the transition. Whether this is a playoff team or not in the wide-open AFC South remains to be seen. If the Titans somehow do make the jump, these five players will be key contributors. 5. Delanie Walker, TE Coming off his best season as a pro, Walker will be a security...

Grade Day: Jake Locker failing as a quarterback?

Just a few days ago I posted a story detailing Ken Whisenhunt’s training and development of Jake Locker as a pocket passer. He’s had ups and downs, but the systems he’s been put in and lack of leadership has flawed his transition from a top-tier college quarterback to a franchise gunslinger. ESPN followed that up with a tier ranking of all 32 starting quarterbacks. The results...

Projecting the 2014 All AFC-South team, Tennessee Titans have four guys

The offseason is essentially complete, as teams wind down between now and the start of training camp, it’s possible to assess what each team has on their roster; things are essentially set, especially in terms of starting lineups. That being the case, it’s also time to start looking at how teams stack up within their division. One of the best ways to do that is to select the...

These 10 “contenders” will miss 2014 playoffs — door is open for Tennessee Titans

One of the great things about the NFL is that nearly every team can make a case for the upcoming season being “their year.” That’s because every campaign sees plenty of worst-to-first turnarounds, where non-playoff teams from the year before suddenly find themselves in postseason contention down the stretch. Conversely, that also means that there are plenty of franchise that...

I love…the idea of Jackie Battle at fullback

When the Tennessee Titans have had the personnel to do so, I’ve long clamored for a bigger running back to be shifted to fullback. Even with LenDale White and Chris Johnson, I thought that a one-two punch in the backfield could be terrifying for opposing defenses. If said running back that’s being shifted to fullback can block, you’re losing virtually nothing from lining up...

Bernard Pollard provides for his future after the NFL

I am willing to bet that very few sports fans are aware that the athletes they worship frequently lose the millions of dollars they made during their careers. The fact is that 78 percent of professional football players ‘go broke.’ Here is how Bernard Pollard is providing for his future after the NFL. The most famous case in history of an athlete who died virtually penniless...

Kendall Wright's fantasy stock on the rise

Kendall Wright is the Titans' best offensive player heading into his third season. But there are so many quality receivers in the NFL, and many of them play with quarterbacks with better outlooks than Jake Locker. So hype-wise, and fantasy-wise, Wright is not yet drawing a ton of attention. I'd love to have him on my team when I draft a fantasy side, though the Displaced...

Tennessee Titans 2014 NFL Season Preview

Quarterback The Titans were the definition of nondescript last season in every facet of the game. They moved the chains at a 71.66% rate, 17th in the NFL, while their opponents moved the chains at a 71.71% rate, 19th in the NFL. Their -0.05% rate of moving the chains differential was not only the closest rate to zero in the NFL, it also ranked 16th in the NFL, right in the middle...

More on DaQuan Jones

Watching DaQuan Jones, I wondered, is he more than just a big guy on the defensive line? If he was, how would I tell? Scouting college players is all about projection of player traits to the next level. I’m comfortable with uncertainty in this process; that’s what my post on Bishop Sankey a couple days ago was all about. With Sankey, though, I had my ideas of what I was seeing...

Facebook Friday: Remembering Steve McNair

Five years ago, one of the best quarterbacks in franchise history was tragically killed. Regardless of your opinion of the player off the field, it’s important to remember what he did for the team, franchise and as an individual. He was a three-time Pro Bowler, co-MVP and took his team to the Super Bowl in the dramatic one-yard-short contest against the St. Louis Rams. Check out...

Are any of the Tennessee Titans the best of jersey Nos. 50-59 in the NFL?

Certain players are simply synonymous with certain numbers. It’s hard to see No. 4 without thinking of Brett Favre. Seven will always be John Elway. A pair of twos right next to each other is Emmitt Smith. And the sight of 56 conjures up memories of Lawrence Taylor. Those are some of the all-time greats, players who have etched their names in the NFL’s history books. But there...
