2. DT Jurrell Casey
Coming off of a knee injury that ended his season right before the final game of the season, Casey again continues to prove to be a force against the run.
Statistically speaking, Casey hasn’t exactly had a an amazing season, netting 20 tackles, a sack, two forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery.
He was responsible for recovering Melvin Gordon’s goal-line fumble, which sealed the win against the Chargers this past Sunday.
While he hasn’t been great in the pass rush, Pro Football Focus has him rated 85.9 against the run.
The Titans have a lot of play-makers on defense, most of whom have already been mentioned, but without guys like Casey, it would be pretty hard for said play-makers to do what they do.
As always, Casey seems to serve as one of the silent heroes of the defensive line and remains one of the most underrated and underappreciated defensive linemen in the league.
