After that original post, the Titans made three big additions. In the draft, they added J.C. Latham and T'Vondre Sweat, and in free agency, they signed slot receiver Tyler Boyd.

Only one of those made the list, but it was an important upgrade that could change the way we look at the team this season.

Here are the updated players and updated grades with the changes highlighted.

Quarterback: Will Levis (purple)

Offensive Playmakers: DeAndre Hopkins (green), Calvin Ridley (green), Tyjae Spears (purple)

Quality Offensive Linemen: Peter Skoronski (green), Lloyd Cushenberry (green), J.C. Latham (purple)

Pass Rushers: Jeffery Simmons (blue), Harold Landry (green)

Defensive Playmakers: L'Jarius Sneed (blue), Roger McCreary (green), Chidobe Awuzie (yellow)

Latham's addition to the roster has a chance to be a huge upgrade over the Dennis Daley and Andre Dillard turnstiles of the past.

Even as someone who had major concerns about Latham before the draft, he has aced every test that he has been given by legendary offensive line coach Bill Callahan. At every turn, the older Callahan has praised Latham's development, and when you watch clips of Latham versus the Swedish blocking sleds from day one and compare it to the final OTA practice, you can see just how much potential he possesses.

Latham's outstanding work ethic, his elite physical ability, and his coachability make him the ideal offensive lineman, though time will tell if he's a natural fit at left tackle after plying on the right at Alabama.

The other big change is Skoronski. The former first-round pick looks healthy and notably bigger, having spent the offseason transforming his body to that of a prototypical guard.

Combining that with a second viewing of his rookie year makes it easy to see why he could take a big jump this season with a great coach and more help on either side of him.

That update means that the final count is two blues, six greens, one yellow, and three purples.

Are they good enough to win a championship this year? Probably not, but they have a talented core of players that aren't as far off as the last two seasons of Titans football indicate.

If a few things break their way this season, the Titans could be one strong push away from being a great team heading into the 2025 campaign.
