Can the Tennessee Titans All-Pro actually get better?

It is a strange thing to say that the Tennessee Titans player with the biggest accolade last year might get better.

However, All-Pro right tackle Jack Conklin may actually achieve that feat and be a star again this year for the Tennessee Titans.

If you forgot, last year Conklin didn’t start off camp by blowing people away. Most often he was cited as being “solid” and that he wasn’t showing up a lot, which was generally a good thing for offensive linemen.

That was until the regular season rolled around when he actually started feeling himself and doing more and more.

It wasn’t long before he was on of the best run-blocking tackles in the NFL. But, to be fair that is what everyone expected him to be.

The bonus was that he just also happened to be very good in pass protection, putting himself between the rusher and the quarterback.

While it looked like maybe a fluke at first, it slowly became the normal in Tennessee for the two booked tackle to put up great games.

By the end of the season it seemed like a race between the two Titans to see who would end up with the highest PFF grade and the most accolades.

Fast forward to this season and I was expecting the same thing. Conklin just turned 23 today so I was expecting a little more variance in his play. Well, maybe I was wrong.

To start it off, don’t try to put any of the Tennessee Titans preseason struggles vs the New York Jets on Conklin’s back. He was very good in pass protection in that game and even had mauls like this in the run game:

Since then he has been doing nothing but impressing in the Titans joint practices with the Carolina Panthers. Check it out:

There were several variations of these tweets over the last two days. Any time the offensive line is mentioned as blocking well I take that as a great sign for guys like Taylor Lewan and Conklin to because they are the most exposed.

The Titans 2nd year tackle is doing everything right and he looks like a steal. Imagine if he could be even more than what he was last year for Tennessee.
