There are quite a few high expectations for Mariota already, and he is already being compared to Green Bay Packers star quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Grading the Titans’ Draft

View image | gettyimages.com When the Tom Brady brought his knee to the turf, and the clock for Super Bowl XLIX hit triple zeroes, the Titans were a mess. They had no identity, and far more questions than answers. After starting the year with a blowout win against the Chiefs, the Titans obtained only one more win during the following sixteen weeks. I had the opportunity to attend...

2015 Tennessee Titans offseason positional analysis: OLB

Better late than never is my motto. Going to crank these last few out before the draft, really. After defensive line, our second stop on the defensive side of the ball on our trip around the Tennessee Titans as we head (deep) into the offseason is outside linebacker. When I did the DL positional analysis, I noted the basic questions were pretty much the exact same ones they would...

Day 3 Edge Rusher Options for the Titans

It's highly unlikely that the Tennessee Titans add a pass rusher before Day 3 of the NFL Draft. However, with Brian Orakpo and Derrick Morgan in the fold, the Titans need to add a project pass rusher to develop. Here are a few names that would provide depth from day one, but could blossom into something more down the road.Frank Clark, MichiganIf not for off-the-field issues, I believe...

Tennessee Titans 3-Round Mock Draft

Round One – Jameis Winston, QB, FSU View image | gettyimages.com Now, my reserves about Winston (why he’s not picked first) don’t move him too far down, obviously.  Winston is still an excellent prospect, who could have a bright NFL future. He’s a talented player, who plays smart and has a very powerful arm. More and more people are projecting the Titans to go quarterback...

The Tennessee Titans' Most Intriguing Signing

The Tennessee Titans were “quiet” in the first week of free agency. Football minds understand the value of retaining Derrick Morgan and the potential of a healthy Brian Orakpo. No, the team did not land Ndamukong Suh, DeMarco Murray, or Devin McCourty. Instead, they made several unheralded signings – none more intriguing than former Buffalo strong safety, Da’Norris Searcy...

Tennessee Titans sign OLB Brian Orakpo

For a while, it looked like the Titans weren’t going to do much in free agency, despite a ton of cap space and holes all over a roster that went 2-14 last season. Turns out, they were just being patient and waiting for price tags to drop to where they felt they were appropriate, a surprising showing of savvy by a front office that has rightfully taken a lot of heat for their moves...

Tennessee Titans re-sign OLB Derrick Morgan

A rare first round hit by the Titans, Derrick Morgan’s career got off to a slow start as he was limited to 112 snaps by a torn ACL as a rookie in 2010 and struggled in his return from that injury in 2011, grading out as Pro Football Focus’ 64th ranked 4-3 defensive end out of 67 eligible. However, he’s graded out above average in each of the past three seasons, grading out...
