Could Josh Carraway be active today for the Tennessee Titans?

The Tennessee Titans need an extra pass rusher today with Aaron Wallace on IR, and it should be Josh Carraway.

Aaron Wallace had a very specific role with the Titans. As a pass rusher, he was a speed rusher that ideally plays behind Brian Orakpo as the stand up rusher opposite left tackles.

Josh Carraway does that very well and showed in the preseason against real NFL starters.

While he probably isn’t the dynamic athlete that Aaron Wallace is, he has the speed to make offensive tackles play on their heels and the strength to set the edge in a pinch.

If you are looking at the Titans roster, he is really the only other player that this team has who can do that.

Guys like David King and Kevin Dodd could be good replacements for Derrick Morgan from a stylistic standpoint. However, they probably have a pretty clear drop off because Morgan has just been really good lately.

The Titans need to find someone this offseason that can give them more of a presence on the edge. Maybe if they can find something in Josh Carraway they can afford to pass on an EDGE with the first round pick in the draft and this could be his audition.

One last note, the Titans play the Seattle Seahawks today. That means that you have to deal with a lot of smaller backs and Russell Wilson. Against those kinds of players you want more athletic players active, not necessarily just bigger bodies.

That all skews towards Carraway being active unless you are trying to put together some film of Kevin Dodd, or if he has just completely changed himself from what he was this preseason.
