Here we are the grand finale, if you’ve kept up with this series you’ve seen that the Titans have had some pretty great players over the years. We’ve also seen the importance of a good general manager (which my next post will be about).

Most of the players we have looked at have been players taken in back to back to back draft classes. The surprising thing is looking at this list you would think the Titans should/could have won a few Super Bowls. Let’s take a look at a quick recap in case you’ve missed anything.
10. Albert Haynesworth
9. Keith Bullock
8. Eddie George
7. Jurrell Casey
6. Steve McNair
5. Derrick Mason
4. Chris Johnson
3. Delanie Walker.
That’s a pretty talented group of players. It’s hard to believe there are still players left to be ranked higher. Because list covers such a broad area of era’s and positions I must add a few honorable mentions.
Now the moment that you have been waiting for. For the last few days I have been shuffling these players back and fourth. I believe these players may have played a key role in making the other better.
2. Jevon Kearse DE
Appropriately nicknamed “the Freak”, Jevon stood 6’4 tall and weighed 285lbs Jevon ran a 4.33 fourty yard dash at the combine and became the 16th overall pick by the Titans in the 1999 NFL draft. Jevon had a legendary rookie year being named defensive rookie of the month all but one month in that year. He led the NFL with 14.5 sacks and he forced 8 fumbles which also led the NFL. It’s no surprise he took home defensive rookie of the year honors that year. It’s also the year Tennessee went to the super bowl. He was the first rookie since Al Baker in 1978 to be named a starter in the pro-bowl. In 2003 his contract expired with Tennessee and he signed a record breaking deal with the Eagles. He returned to Tennessee in 2008 and retired in 2009.
Rob Bironas (K), Frank Wycheck (TE), Kyle Vanden Bosch (DE), Brett Kern (P), Cortland Finnegan (CB), Stephen Tulloch (LB), Kevin Mawae (C), Samari Rolle (CB), Blaine Bishop (S), Michael Roos (T), Nate Washington (WR).
