UDFA Isaiah Mack, A+
You have to understand that not all players are graded equally. I don’t hold Mack to the same standard that I hold A.J. Brown to.
So, Mack getting a higher grade is more about the caliber of player the Titans got for how much they spent rather than me saying that Mack is a better player than Brown.
In the run game, Mack has been stout and nimble and the comparisons to an early career Jurrell Casey aren’t wrong. There were stretches where Mack was the best DT on the field for the Titans, and that is no disrespect to Casey or a newly dominant Daquan Jones.
With 1.5 sacks on the season as a rotational player, the Titans have to be impressed by what he has brought to the table. So much so that they have shifted from a front that features two defensive linemen to one that features three.
If the Titans do go back to that two defensive lineman front, they are going to be able to role out these two front lines late in the season:
Line 1: Harold Landry-Daquan Jones-Jurrell Casey-Reggie Gilbert
Line 2: Cameron Wake-Jeffery Simmons-Isaiah Mack-Sharif Finch
That is a pretty outstanding job by the Titans front office.
