NFL Power Ranking: Breaking down the Tennessee Titans defense


With the 2015 NFL Draft coming up, teams are hard at working putting the finishing touches on areas of need on their teams. The Tennessee Titans are no different and they have a lot of work to do. With NFL free agency mostly over, it is time to take a look at what the Tennessee Titans have on their roster.

Today, I am taking a look at every defensive player on the roster and ranking them from top to bottom. This should help identify where the Tennessee Titans need help and where they have plenty of talent.

    Glaring issues:

    There really aren’t any huge needs for this defense surprisingly. Soon I will have a post up separating each player on the roster into a category as to better describe the talent the Tennessee Titans have on their roster.

    The only real issue with this group is interior linebacker and safety. After the additions of Brian Orakpo and Perrish Cox, the Tennessee Titans defensive holes at EDGE and cornerback respectively are much smaller. Depth there would be great, but the Tennessee Titans could win a lot of games with that group.

    Biggest benefits:

    The cornerback group looks very good after the Tennessee Titans signed Perrish Cox. The depth of this group also looks much better than fans might expect after Brandon Harris was brought back.

    The starting threesome of Jason McCourty, Perrish Cox and Coty Sensabaugh is a top 12-15 unit right now and that is a conservative statement. With four corners ready to go at any time, training camp should be very competitive this year.
