The Tennessee Titans might have the most talented roster in the AFC South.

On April 1st of 2017, the Tennessee Titans had one of the less-than-impressive wide receiver groups in the NFL. There were only six receivers officially on the roster and they were: Rishard Matthews, Tajae Sharpe, Harry Douglas, Eric Weems, Jonathan Krause, and (fan-favorite) Tre McBride.

Even though Titans fans enjoyed watching that scrappy group claw their way to the team’s first winning season in years, everyone knew changes had to be made.

Fast-forward four years and the Titans top-six wide receivers rival anyone in the NFL in terms of depth, top-end talent, potential, and contract value.

National pundits used to question whether the Titans had any wide receivers worth talking about, then the question was whether or not the Titans had the top receiver in the AFC South? The next question to ask is, do the Titans have the top-three best receivers in the AFC South?

The only questions about the top spot in the AFC South are whether Julio Jones should get the top spot because of his long career of elite production, or should it go to A.J. Brown who is one of the most promising receivers to enter the league in the last decade.

Most people would agree that the argument starts at the bronze medal. Only three players have any argument for this spot.
