Avery Williamson: Very good run stuffer with limited coverage ability who has led the Titans in tackles each of the last two seasons.
Wesley Woodyard: Veteran who, at age 31, still has impressive explosiveness to go along with top-notch instincts.
Jayon Brown (R): Fast and explosive, though undersized, coverage specialist who will be a major contributor on both defense and special teams as a rookie.
Daren Bates: Signed on the first day of 2017 free agency to help transform the Titans’ special teams unit.
Nate Palmer: Veteran LB whose main contributions come on special teams.
