Young players who could step up for the Tennessee Titans
Last year the Tennessee Titans saw the rise of some young players that helped give this team a boost. Kristian Fulton really developed into a great talent while Chris Jackson and Teair Tart both looked like really solid rotational players.
Next year, the Titans could get a few new starters or role players on both sides of the ball that didn’t get a chance to play because of the talent in front of them, injuries, or a mix of both.
Dillon Radunz immediately jumps out as a player who could step into a starting role next year. Radunz was thrown into the mix against the San Francisco 49ers and he basically walled off Nick Bosa and made him a non-factor when the two matched up.
Is he a future star? It is hard to say because he has great athleticism and tools, but we haven’t seen him in a starting role yet. However, what we have seen from him is positive and he has earned a chance to take a spot somewhere in 2022.
Caleb Farley is an interesting player because the Titans got great play out of their top cornerbacks and unless Jackrabbit Jenkins is cut or traded for cap space, it is going to be hard for Vrabel to pull the trigger on a change.
Having said that, Farley is immensely talented and has elite size and tools, so he could end up being too good to the bench.
The last player to mention is Rashad Weaver who had a stellar preseason but got hurt very early in the season.
Still only one of these players plays on offense. While it is great to have defensive depth and potential blue-chip prospects next year, it is even more clear now that the Tennessee Titans’ upgrades have to be focused on offense this offseason.
