While many questions need to be answered in training camp, what’s the biggest one for the Tennessee Titans?
Bleacher Report’s Brent Sobleski thinks determining what the Tennessee Titans’ offensive rookies can contribute this season is the biggest question that must be answered in training camp.
The Titans have no shortage of interesting rookies, whether it be on offense with wide receiver A.J. Brown and right guard Nate Davis, or on defense with defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons and defensive back Amani Hooker.
But the biggest question to be answered comes from the team’s offensive rookies, according to Sobleski.
"Marcus Mariota’s maturation remains high on the Tennessee Titans’ list of priorities, but the quarterback has lacked a complete supporting cast. The additions of wide receivers Adam Humphries and A.J. Brown along with new guards should help."
The Titans enter the 2019 season with one of the deeper groups of pass-catchers this team has seen in years. On top of third-year pro wideout Corey Davis, the Titans will see the return of tight end Delanie Walker and have added receiver Adam Humphries in free agency.
Drafting Brown in the second-round of the 2019 NFL Draft is just another receiver that could make an impact. The Titans needed to make things easier for quarterback Marcus Mariota after he helped lead their passing attack to a No. 29 ranking in 2018 and general manager Jon Robinson did a great job in trying to get that done.
Brown has the potential to be a major contributor right away—he’s already being compared to Andre Reed—and he could also eventually be this team’s No. 1 with his impressive ability as a playmaker. We should get a better idea of just how far along Brown is during training camp.
The offensive line needs to improve from a year ago if the Titans are to get their offense off the ground. Right guard Kevin Pamphile’s healthy return is vital to turning things around immediately, and the Titans have solid depth behind him in Davis, their third-round pick.
One would assume Pamphile has the inside track, but there will undoubtedly be a competition for the guard position between Pamphile and Davis. This situation is fluid and it could turn out that Davis, who is considered a mauler in the middle of the offensive front, is the best man for the job when it’s all said and done.
These questions and more will be answered in short time. Training camp can’t start soon enough.
