The Tennessee Titans selected Sen’Derrick Marks in the second round of the 2009 NFL draft and needless to say, we’ve all been a little disappointed as no one feels he has lived up to that selection. Having said that I’m one of his few supporters.
I think he can be a solid DT. Not amazing, just solid. Last season he ended up replacing Smith on the line after some lackluster performances and Marks remained a starter the rest of the year. This year may not be the same, as the DT position is bursting with talent. That doesn’t mean he can’t still be a solid rotational player.
Today in PFF’s “Three Years of Tackling Efficiency” series they addressed interior rushers. Our boy Sen’Derrick Marks made the list of the
best worst ratios. Due to an error on their side, the lists of best and worst ratios are swapped.
Sad. I thought I had good news for today…
|10||Antonio D. Smith||2559||58||13||9||8.9|
The bright side? There are worst defenders. The bad side? Well, for Marks, he’s in the last year of his rookie contract which means he’s gonna have to work his but off if he wants to stick with such a talented roster next year. Which when you look at it from our perspective, it may be a good thing. He should be playing balls to the walls and that’s about as much as you can ask for.
Special thanks to PFF for being awesome and giving me content during this unbearably slow period of the off-season. Keep on keepin’ on.
