Is this the biggest question for the Tennessee Titans


Is youth at receiver a concern for the Tennessee Titans intimidate playoff chances?

There is a lot of buzz around the Tennessee Titans right now. While most agree that this team is playoff ready, there are still some questions.

Fansided’s Eric Robinson went through his biggest questions for the AFC South recently, and he asked: Can rookie receivers Corey Davis and Taywan Taylor upgrade the offense?

To Robinson, these players were the keys to the playoffs:

“…a lot of that production boils down to the maturation of Davis and Taylor. Two pass catchers who have molded favorable reputations for being reliable when it comes to the passing game. Davis has the size, speed, and measurables to be exactly what the team expected as their 1st round selection (fifth overall) this year.

The run game for the Titans is going to be trouble enough for defenses this year but the implementation of both Davis and Taylor can give the Titans a playoff-type offense.”

So I looked to Jim Wyatt’s posts on the Tennessee Titans page to see if I could get any clarity. It turns out, that today he posted his thoughts on the rookie class as a whole. You should check it out here.

In that article he says this about each receiver:

“Receiver Corey Davis (First round, fifth overall)

After being held back during the early portion of the offseason, Davis turned in an eye-opening finish. He showed strong hands while snatching footballs out of the air, and he looked explosive when he turned upfield. I’m looking forward to seeing him in pads.

Receiver Taywan Taylor (Third round, 72nd overall)

Was consistent from beginning to end during the offseason. He looks like a perfect fit in the slot, and already he’s gained the trust of the quarterbacks. The Titans didn’t sign Eric Decker because Taylor was struggling, but I am curious to see how much Decker’s addition will impact Taylor’s snaps.”

  • With Davis you see words like “eye-opening”, “strong hands” and “explosive” all of those things are very encouraging for him. Not because that is more than we were expecting as fans, but because it would have been easy for him to baby his ankle and pull back. Instead, he laid on the throttle.

    With Taylor, the most important thing for me is that he looks consistent. The Tennessee Titans need to get a consistent in the slot who can threaten a defense with speed. It looks like they found that in Taylor.

    If the key factor to the Tennessee Titans making the playoffs is the rookie wide recievers, I think Jim Wyatt would say the Titans are on the right track to make the post season.

    I don’t want to put words in his mouth, but everything he is saying is encouraging and it looks like the Titans may finally have all the pieces to make it back to playing football after 20 other teams go home.
