PFF has high expectations for Roos
By Paul Kuharsky
Pro Football Focus rated Tennessee Titans left tackle Michael Roos as the third-best player at his position last year.
PFF is projecting 2013 expectations for its top-rated players from last season.
Here’s what Ben Stockwell says about Roos.
Analysis: Even through a change at quarterback -- from quick-release Matt Hasselbeck to slow-release Jake Locker -- Roos' performance did not waver and he even improved to register his highest season grade since the Titans' last playoff appearance in 2008. Roos graded negatively in pass protection only once all season and his performance was one of the few constants in a disappointing season for Tennessee.
Trending: Outside of a lackluster 2010 season, Roos has been one of the league's most consistent pass protectors. Unless Father Time starts catching up with him, expect more of the same.
The Titans did a massive overhaul of their interior line, signing Andy Levitre to play left guard, drafting Chance Warmack to be their right guard and creating a three-way battle at center that looks like it will be won by Rob Turner.
Having Levitre beside him should help Roos, who’s more of a leader heading into his ninth season.
