Tennessee Titans: Ranking 5 Defensive Players Through 7 Games
5. EDGE Harold Landry
Landry was drafted in the 2018 draft in order to eventually replace aging veterans Brian Orakpo and Derrick Morgan.
With both of those men retired, Landry finally got his chance to be a starter on the edge this season, and for the most part, has not disappointed.
So far in 2019, Landry has shown a knack for getting to the quarterback, as well as playing the run very well. Through seven starts, he has 32 tackles (three for a loss) and a fumble recovery and leads the team in sacks with four, good for a 67.7 overall grade from Pro Football Focus.
His best of the season was the Titans’ Week 4 victory over the Falcons, where he netted two of his four sacks, and showed flashes of what he can do on a week-to-week basis.
In his second year, Landry is already showing a lot of potential to possibly becoming one of the NFL’s top pass rushers.
