3. DeMarco Murray: Following a dismal one year stint with the Philadelphia Eagles, Murray joined the Titans via trade and led the AFC in rushing during his first year with the team. At age 29, Murray clearly still has plenty of gas left in the tank and will continue to be the guiding force for the Titans’ offense in 2017.
4. Derrick Henry: As a rookie, Henry was very effective playing the role of a spell running back behind Murray. He likely won’t see a huge increase in volume in 2017, but it’s safe to assume that he will see the field more. The physically imposing back also serves as great injury insurance for Murray.
5. Khalfani Muhammad (R): One of the Titans’ three seventh round selections in the 2017 NFL Draft, Muhammad has a high chance of making the final 53 man roster because of what he can immediately provide to both the offense and special teams. With burning 4.3 speed, he’ll serve as a great change of pace option when the Titans’ big backs need a breather, and he also has the ability to return kickoffs. When the ball is in his hands, look out.
6. Jalston Fowler [Fullback]: Fowler’s snap count decreased a bit in Mike Mularkey’s first year as the Titans’ head coach, but he remained effective nonetheless in his role as a lead blocker in I-formations. One of the biggest praises of Fowler coming out of Alabama was his versatility, so it’s safe to wonder if he could see time as a TE following the departure of Anthony Fasano.
