Number 17: Wesley Woodyard
ILB – #59 – 6’0 233lbs – Exp. 10 – Kentucky – 2014 UFA
Talk about rock solid consistency and you’re talking Wesley Woodyard. He hasn’t recorded a below 50 tackle season since 2010. The guy is reliable. He is a true jack-of-all-trades at the linebacker position. He is solid at covering running backs and tight ends in the pass game, sniffs out run plays very well and rarely misses a tackle. He even rushes the passer efficiently when asked to.
Most of all, he’s the perfect role model for all of the young defenders because of his professionalism. He is the oldest player on this list so far by five years, so his veteran presence is a necessity for the Titans’ locker room. His value is very prevalent both on and off the field, which makes him the 17th best player on this year’s Titans squad.
Stat Projection: 65 Tackles, 3 Sacks, 3 PD, 1 INT
