Tennessee Titans: Top-5 offensive players through 7 games
4. TE Jonnu Smith
The third-year tight end out of Florida International continues to be a productive part of the Titans’ offense.
Statistically, Smith has not had an extremely prolific season, to say the very least, but when he’s been called upon, he’s usually come through for the Titans.
So far in 2019, he has caught nine of his eleven targets for 161 yards and four first downs, including a 35-yard scamper on a third down this past Sunday after he was well short of the first down at the time of him catching the pass.
Smith has always had a lot of potential as the heir-apparent to Walker, and showed flashes of being just that last season when Walker missed most of the year due to an ankle injury — but his season last year was cut short due to an ACL tear.
Smith got his first start of the season this past Sunday against the Chargers, with Walker limited to five plays due to injury.
Smith may not statistically be up there with the rest of the main receiving targets on the team, but he certainly has come through for the team when called upon.
