Power Ranking the Tennessee Titans: Part 5
By Sam Sky
Number 1: Marcus Mariota
QB – #8 – 6’4 222lbs – Exp. 3 – Oregon – 2015 Draft 1st Round Pick
Quite predictably, I assume, I believe Marcus Mariota is the best player on this team. All bias aside, I believe the media and analysts don’t give this kid the credit he deserves. He has easily been the most clutch QB in the NFL this past season due to leading in passer rating on both 3rd down and in the red zone. He’s been in the NFL for a puny two years and already has a better highlight reel than Joe Flacco, a former Super Bowl MVP.
He has taped accuracy, elite athleticism, smart decision making, and mostly the Flyin’ Hawaiian is all freaking ball. No social media presence, no drama, nobody even really knows what’s going on in his life because he is so focused on football. I watch some of the plays he makes and really believe if he can cut down the errors that come with young QBs with not much experience, he can be an uber athletic Drew Brees. For the first time in his career, he has more weapons than he needs instead of less. I am more than ecstatic to see how he performs. 2017 is his breakout campaign in my opinion.
Stat Projection: 4,084 Yards, 31 TDs, 11 Int, 312 Rush Yds, 3 Rush TDs
