2020 Projections for key contributors in the Tennessee Titans secondary.
The Tennessee Titans defense finished with 14 interceptions in 2020, 12 of those from the secondary.
The Titans secondary is one of the best in the league. Last season, they weren’t able to cause quite as many turnovers as they would have hoped. This was likely caused by the absence of Malcolm Butler and Adoree Jackson for several games.
Adoree Jackson, who I consider the Titans best cornerback, wasn’t able to get any interceptions in 2019. In addition to that, Malcolm Butler only managed to add 2.
It is worth mentioning that if these two players were able to stay healthy throughout the season then the Titans interception numbers would have been much higher. Regardless, the team was still able to finish top 10 in interceptions.
When talking about the Tennessee Titans secondary between last season and the upcoming season, you can’t forget to mention Logan Ryan. With 4 interceptions in 2019, Ryan was only one behind the team leader Kevin Byard. Unfortunately, Logan Ryan will not be returning to the team in 2020. This is a huge loss to the defense and specifically a huge loss at slot cornerback.
The 2020 NFL Draft brought the Titans a rookie hopeful to fill Logan Ryan’s shoes next season. Kristian Fulton fell to the end of the second round ultimately to be drafted by the Tennessee Titans at 61 overall. Based on Fulton’s athleticism and college production, this could be another Day 2 draft pick that we look back at in awe of Jon Robinson’s genius.
Last weekend on the Titans Time Podcast, I gave my expectations for the Tennessee Titans secondary in 2020. Here’s how I think each key contributor will perform next season.
