This one doesn’t take a lot of explaining, but it is something that the Tennessee Titans haven’t actually seen a lot of because of one thing or another.
For a long time, Jurrell Casey was the fixture in the B-gap for the Titans, but after that stopped working he was moved around to try to create mismatches for him and the rest of the defense. Something that never really has happened for Tennessee, is a situation where they had such a powerful EDGE that they felt they could kick him inside consistently and get pressure on the quarterback.
Well, until now.
Now, Clowney will be able to use his length and lateral mobility to make life really hard for interior offensive linemen. While Harold Landry runs the arc around the offensive tackle, Clowney will have two gaps that he can attack depending on what he feels most comfortable with.
Again, speed to power and his lateral agility make it so hard for a guard to know when to set his anchor down and how to best deal with a unique rusher like Clowney.
I don’t think this is the best place to put him, but I think it is a great curveball to throw at guys who have been dealing with the raw power of Daquan Jones and Jeffery Simmons all-day.
