Led by arguably the best safety in the NFL, Kevin Byard, the Titans once again find themselves loaded in another part of their defense: the secondary.
Along with Byard, who was recently ranked as one of the best NFL players 25 and under, the Titans have fellow safety Kenny Vaccaro. An August signing a year ago, Vaccaro returns after having his second-highest graded season (66.4) as a pro and a tackling grade that ranked him 21st out of 101 safeties, per PFF.

The Titans’ group of cornerbacks are another impressive part of this secondary.
Both Logan Ryan and Adoree’ Jackson were ranked 34th and 27th among NFL cornerbacks last season, respectively, also per PFF. Jackson specifically is one of the best young corners in the game and an outstanding return man.
Malcolm Butler didn’t fare so well in his debut season after earning a huge contract from the Titans, but his play was on the upswing by year’s end. After nabbing two picks in his final five games, it looks like Butler, a former Pro Bowler, might be turning the corner towards the special talent the Titans thought they were getting.
It isn’t everyday you see a secondary with three potential Pro Bowl cornerbacks AND the best safety in football—but the Titans have just that.
