Do the Tennessee Titans have the pieces to pass the "Championship Formula"

Quarterback (1): Will Levis (Purple)

Will Levis has all of the upside in the world, and he was a walking highlight reel when he had more than a second to throw last year. However, you can't evaluate a rookie quarterback in those conditions and even though he did more good than bad, let's wait to see where he grades out now that he has help around him and a smart HC.

Offensive playmakers (3): DeAndre Hopkins (green), Calvin Ridley (green), Tyjae Spears (purple)

Age is a reason to change someone from a green to a yellow, but I will start believing that age is an issue for a player when it changes what they look like on the field. Hopkins is still boxing guys out and making incredible catches like he is in his mid-20s and Ridley is still routing guys up and making big plays.

Spears had fantastic flashes last season and I consistently said all season that the Titans were better when he was on the field and when Derrick Henry was on the sideline. Spears could quickly take the jump to green if he plays like he did last year with a bigger role, but until then he has to stay in the purple category.

Quality offensive linemen (3): Lloyd Cushenberry (green), Peter Skoronski (purple), Daniel Brunskill (yellow)

This is clearly the worst group on the list for the Tennessee Titans, and fans should be screaming for the team to just take Joe Alt at 7.

Think about it like this. This is the only position group in this formula where there are multiple players outside of the green/blue range. The Titans have already taken a massive step toward fixing this by hiring Bill Callahan, but there is a very real chance that Cushenberry, Skoronski, and Alt could all be blue-chip players under Callahan.

The Titans are one piece away from turning their worst position group into their best position group.
