Mike Vrabel promises to evaluate Tennessee Titans depth chart

The Tennessee Titans fell to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night in a game that can only be described as aggravating.

Heading into the season the biggest question marks were surrounding the Tennessee Titans passing game and how effective it could be, while the team's biggest strength was their defense and specifically their run defense.

Well, we are halfway through the season and the script has completely flipped. Now fans get excited when Will Levis drops back for a pass and they cringe at the thought of needing the defense to step up and make a play.

The Tennessee Titans didn't make any depth chart changes during the two weeks that they had following the London game, but now Mike Vrabel has said that he is going to gather his coaches and make some changes to the depth chart at some key positions.

Whether Mike Vrabel believes in Will Levis or not, there is no way that he can start Ryan Tannehill over Levis at this point in the season. I have been a strong supporter of Tannehill over the years and I think he will be a starter in this league next season, but after back-to-back strong starts, it is a fireable offense if Vrabel doesn't start Levis.

Who might be moving up the Tennessee Titans depth chart

Mike Keith went on the radio this morning and hinted that the coaching staff likes where rookie tackle Jaelyn Duncan is. However, on Thursday the Tennessee Titans ended up playing 9 different linemen due to injury and Duncan was the last one in and the first one out.

Both Nicholas Petit-Frere and Andre Dillard have really struggled to hold up in pass protection this year. With right tackle Chris Hubbard set to return next week, it is possible that both Dillard and NPF will be on the bench next Sunday.

If that happens then it will come down to Dillon Radunz and Duncan for the left tackle job. For years Radunz has been an average or better option at both guard spots and both tackle spots, so he has earned the job, however, Mike Vrabel is set on making him play guard for some reason.

At this point it is a coin flip for who will get the job.

In the secondary, Kristian Fulton has actually done a really nice job over the last three games. With Roger McCreary ranking as one of the NFL's best slot corners and Sean Murphy-Bunting still holding his own on the boundary, I don't see any changes coming at the corner spot if everyone stays healthy.

With Hooker locked in at one safety spot, that means that the jobs in jeopardy are Elijah Molden's and Terrell Edmunds.

The weakest link here is Edmunds, and I think K'Von Wallace might be a replacement. Either Wallace could take over Molden's spot with Molden moving back into his original role, or Wallace could replace Edmunds outright.

Matthew Jackson is also someone that Mike Vrabel has been infatuated with this season, so there is a chance that he gets a chance at one of those roles as well.
