3. Ryan Tannehill, QB

2021 was a terrible year for Tannehill for a lot of reasons and critics rarely give him credit for being the only positive part of the offense for about half of the season in a year where they won the top seed in the AFC.

That is why it is great news for him (and for real Titans fans) that he has been on fire during OTAs, mini-camp, training camp, etc.

Over the past few practices, he is the only quarterback who seems to be able to move the offense at all and he is doing it without Derrick Henry who doesn’t really practice during training camp.

Despite an entirely new supporting cast, the passing offense seems to take a big leap forward whenever he is on the field. That shouldn’t surprise anyone when they look at his body of work, but you really have to give him a lot of credit for improving despite the changes around him.

The top three receivers have all changed, so has the TE1, and the right tackle, and again he is working with a backup running back…oh and the passing game is much different this year now that Tim Kelly is taking over that part of the offense.

To take all of that in and to actually have the offense look better than they did in training camp in 2021, is important and it is what the team needed him to do.
