This won’t be a bloated series, this will just be a solid depth chart of who deserves to be ranked where, and what the Tennessee Titans may do at that position going forward.
This will focus on the linebacker position.
LOLB: Derrick Morgan
LILB: Zach Brown
RILB: Avery Williamson
ROLB: Brian Orakpo
-Derrick Morgan looks much more aggressive this season and it really has me fired up. I think that he can become a great player if he can thrive in single coverage opposite Brian Orakpo. I think it is fair to say that this year he could be a dominant 3-4 OLB if he can finally make it to the quarterback instead of just getting close.
-Zach Brown is the same double-edged sword that he has always been. On one had, he should be dynamic if he can get his hands on the ball and when coming down hill. However, if he ever gets flat footed, his lack of fundamentals and high tackling will get him killed.
-Avery Williamson is going to thrive as long as the Tennessee Titans don’t try to make him do too much. He is a great in the box linebacker who can win when he is blitzing. However, he won’t be great in coverage and will be slow to the ball on the outside.
-Brian Orakpo is an outstanding player and that hasn’t changed just because he changed zip codes. He is dominant against the run and he absolutely destroys the pocket against inferior talent. If he can stay healthy this team will look significantly better in 2015.
