The Tennessee Titans conclude their draft by selecting another edge rusher.
As stated earlier, an NFL team can never have too many pass rushers. Team’s vary in their scheme and gameday approach, but one theory will always be true of the NFL game when it comes to building a roster. You go get yourself a franchise quarterback, and you make sure you get a couple of guys on the other side of the ball who can make the other team’s quarterback uncomfortable.
Ladies and gentlemen, there may not be a better edge rusher in this year’s draft class that has the possibility of being added in Round 7 than Tarron Jackson, formerly of Coastal Carolina. He’s six-foot-two. He tips the scales at 260 pounds.
We live in a world where people subscribe to Pro Football Focus and play Fantasy football as well, so here are some very necessary statistics to drive the point home. In 41 career games from 2017 to 2020, Jackson ran the guy with the ball down 188 times, including 42 times that resulted in a loss of yardage. He also stacked 24.5 sacks and six forced fumbles.
Put a huge asterisk by his name if you’re a Tennessee Titans fan. Even if he doesn’t find his way to Nashville, Titans fans will be watching him play on Sundays for a long time. That’s a guarantee.
