Where should Tennessee Titans fans focus on Saturday?

A lot of the names we start out with on these pieces are going to be bigger names. Last week we talked about how the Tennessee Titans should look at Minkah Fitzpatrick the DB for Alabama.

This week I think Titans fans should be looking squarely at a player on a bad team facing a top-20 team in Virginia Tech:

Harold Landry EDGE, BC

This is a great test for Landry to see if he is really a top tier talent in this draft. After an underwhelming game against Notre Dame he needs to have a nice day against one of the few good teams on the BC schedule that they face at home.

At home he should get the advantage on the snap count that should help the defense as a whole cope with a good Virginia Tech team that has only allowed 6 sacks all year.

The senior pass rusher only has two sacks all year and was held without one against Notre Dame and Clemson, which were his real chances to shine.

Over his career he has gotten off to fast starts in terms of early season sacks so if he doesn’t start piling them up soon it may be cause for concern.

He is going to be a Jon Robinson guy as a senior with a ton of starts, not to mention he had 16.5 sacks last year which was the best in college football.

His bend and effort will make him a coveted prospect but if he doesn’t step up soon (today would be nice) he will face a lot of questions about being a one-year-wonder who is more average than special.

Either way, some of the shine is off of him right now and if with guys like Arden Key, Bradley Chubb, Hercules Mata’afa, Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, and others there is a chance that he could fall to the Titans later in the first round because he just isn’t a fit for what other teams want.

Today is a great test for Landry and if you are interested in potential EDGE players the Titans could bring in next year I think the names have to start with Bradley Chubb and Harold Landry.
