What did the offseason teach us about the 2019 Tennessee Titans defense?

While I have a lot or respect for what the offense managed to do despite several key injuries early in the season, the strength of the Tennessee Titans was their defense in 2018.

The one thing that I can say right now is that the defensive side of the ball should be the strength of the team in 2019 as well.

From top to bottom this is one of the best and most complete units in the NFL, boasting Pro Bowl-caliber talent at every level and with some of the best players at their position all over the field.

While some development is needed going into 2019, this defense has already gone from “good to great” as the coaching staff likes to say, now their goal is to go from “great to the best”.

After an offseason of questions and answers through free agency, trades, the draft, and OTAs, what are my five final thoughts before camp stars?

Note: I will leave “too long; didn’t read” short summaries in bold at the end of each slide (TL;DR) in case I am getting too in depth or in case you are in a hurry.
