1. Rashaan Evans, LB
Where do you even start?
Evans went from someone who seemed like he had the brain to be the future leader of the defense and the heavy-hitting, tone-setting style of play that made him someone that offenses were afraid to play.
Now, there is a 50% chance that you will find him standing completely still when the ball is snapped or running the opposite way. He doesn’t look like he is any better in the scheme now than he was in Week 1 and speaking of Week 1, you might remember that he was ejected from that game for punching a tight end.
Well, don’t worry because there was more where that came from. Evans leads the Titans in penalties and when you write up the pros and cons of having him on the field, it turns out to be a “pro and cons” list because you have to struggle to find two good things that Evans does.
The Titans desperately need a new DC, and that might mean that Mike Vrabel can’t protect him as much as he has this past year. If he doesn’t put something on tape these last few weeks showing that he deserves to keep his job, then linebacker is a position of need this offseason because the Titans need to find someone to start opposite their best linebacker, David Long.
