Tennessee Titans GM Jon Robinson ranked eighth in NFL.com’s Gregg Rosenthal GM rankings.

Since 2016, the Tennessee Titans have been under the leadership of general manager Jon Robinson and it has been one of the most successful periods in Titans/Oilers history.

After seasons of abysmal management under Mike Reinfeldt and Ruston Webster that saw the teams finish with one winning season from 2009 until 2016, Robinson helped turn the team around with four consecutive winning seasons.

Robinson started his career with the New England Patriots as a scout back in 2002 and quickly moved up the ranks to Director of College Scouting in 2009. During Robinson’s time in New England as Director of College Scouting, the team drafted Rob Gronkowski, Julian Edelman, Devin McCourty, and Chandler Jones just to name a few players.

Robinson then went to Tampa Bay in 2013 as Director of Player Personnel. The Bucs picked Mike Evans, Kwon Alexander, and Jameis Winston during Robinson’s time with the team. Robinson has shown incredible ability to scout and draft in the league and has flourished as general manager for the Titans.

Robinson has made many keen and shrewd moves for the Titans that took a team that had won five games the two seasons before to now a top-four finisher in 2019. Now, Robinson is starting to get credit for all his hard work as he ranked eighth among all GMs in the league according to NFL.com’s Gregg Rosenthal.

That ranking is still too low for Robinson considering that John Schneider of the Seahawks and Howie Roseman of the Eagles rank ahead of him. However, Robinson can make a big jump on this list with this offseason’s moves.

Let’s take a look at Robinson’s top five moves that have earned him a spot above some of the competition, including the Los Angeles Rams, Los Angeles Chargers, and Indianapolis Colts to name a few.
