The Tennessee Titans have played two preseason games now, and I think it is fair to say that we know substantially more about this team right now than we did just a few weeks ago.

Whether you talk about figuring out just how good Taylor Lewan and the tight ends look or if it is about just how bad Andy Levitre has looked, we now know what this team looks like.
So with that said, how do the Tennessee Titans get from a 90-man roster to the 53-man roster?
Paul Kuharsky put out his latest projection, so I figured I would take a crack at it.
Quarterbacks (3): Marcus Mariota, Zach Mettenberger, Charlie Whitehurst.
Running backs (4): Bishop Sankey, David Cobb, Antonio Andrews, Dexter McCluster
Fullback (1): Jalston Fowler
Wide Receivers (6): Kendall Wright, Dorial Green-Beckham, Harry Douglas, Hakeem Nicks, Justin Hunter, Tre McBride
Tight ends (4): Delanie Walker, Anthony Fasano, Craig Stevens, Chase Coffman
Offensive linemen (8): LT Taylor Lewan, LG Byron Bell, C Brian Schwenke, RG Chance Warmack, RT Jeremiah Poutasi, G-T Jamon Meredith, T Byron Stingily, C Andy Gallik
Defensive linemen (7): Jurrell Casey, DaQuan Jones, Sammie Hill, Karl Klug, Al Woods, Angelo Blackson, Ropati Pitoitua
Linebackers (7): OLBs — Brian Orakpo, Derrick Morgan, Jonathan Massaquoi, Deiontrez Mount; ILBs — Avery Williamson, Zach Brown, Wesley Woodyard
Cornerbacks (5): Jason McCourty, Perrish Cox, Blidi Wreh-Wilson, Coty Sensabaugh, Cody Riggs
Safeties (5): Michael Griffin, Da’Norris Searcy, Marqueston Huff, Daimion Stafford, Josh Aubrey
Long snapper (1): Beau Brinkley
Kicker (1): Ryan Succop
Punter (1): Brett Kern
I think Paul Kuharsky did a great job in his projection and I only had four changes.
In- Tre McBride
We all knew that McBride was a project when they took him in the 7th, and so did they. So why do people think that they are going to cut him now? I think he is going to be a good special teams player this year, and the Tennessee Titans are putting him all over the field trying to get him to make this team.
I think he stays, but I don’t think he is a lock.
Out- Will Poehls
While he is a physical specimen, Byron Bell, Chance Warmack, Andy Gallik, and Jamon Meredith can all play guard, which is where Poehls plays best. If the Tennessee Titans keep another offensive lineman I would expect it to be Fernando Velasco.
In- Josh Aubrey
Again, another player who was brought in with low expectations. Aubrey is a thumping safety and he can be a really good in special teams and in the running game. With this team needing a better special teams group and a deeper group of DBs, I expect him to make the roster.
Out- Mike Martin
I think Martin would be a good nose tackle, but who does he displace? Al Woods is a Dick LeBeau guy and Sammie Hill has been good in his time with the Tennessee Titans. Angelo Blackson and Karl Klug are both guys that can play all over the defensive line, so Mike Martin may need a miracle to make this team.
