Tennessee Titans: Biggest hits and misses on 53-man roster
Hit: Isaiah Mack
The Titans might have originally planned to keep five defensive linemen like last season, but Mack’s stellar play forced them to keep six.
Mack was consistently a standout player throughout training camp and the preseason. His shining moment during the exhibition slate came in Preseason Week 2 when he totaled four tackles (one solo, one for loss) and one sack against the New England Patriots.
There is nothing but upside when you look at Mack on the field. The Titans have a promising young player on their roster, who more than deserved to make the cut.
Miss: Corey Levin
The former 2017 sixth-round pick of the Titans was one of the biggest surprise cuts on Saturday, or at least he was to us. In a preseason of bad offensive line play, Levin was OK and seemingly did enough to earn a spot.
A huge plus for Levin was that he’s capable of playing multiple spots on the offensive line, including guard and center. We thought there was a possibility that Ben Jones could be moved to right guard after Kevin Pamphile’s struggles, which would have placed Levin at center.
Not only did that not happen, but Levin was cut from the team altogether. The Titans decided to keep Jamil Douglas and David Quessenberry instead.
