2. Ben Johnson, Offesive Coordinator, Detroit Lions

Out of all the candidates, this would be my favorite pick for the Titans. Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Ben Johnson has shown that he can take a seemingly-average quarterback in Jared Goff, while the organization puts the correct pieces around him, and turn that unit into a high-flying, top unit in the league.

Detroit's offense has flourished under Johnson, and Goff is playing some of the best football of his career these past two seasons. The Lions have also remained committed to the run, using a variety of guys while working through injury. Whether it's been David Montgomery, Jahmyr Gibbs or others like Craig Reynolds, the Lions do not shy away from running the rock.

Johnson is already one of the top candidates to become a head coach as we speak, and he was given an opportunity to interview for the Panthers' gig last year. But, Johnson bet on himself and turned it down in order to finish what he started in Detroit. So far, so good, I would say. Johnson is pioneering the NFL's no. 2 overall offense right now and has the Lions looking like an NFC contender.
