Reviewing the Titans in #NFLRank
By Paul Kuharsky
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- When 63 of us voted for ESPN.com’s #NFLRank project, we rated a player on a scale of 1-10. Aaron Rodgers was the top offensive player with an average score of 9.92. J.J. Watt was the top defensive player with an average score of 9.82.
Just three Tennessee Titans made the top-100 lists: running back Chris Johnson was 68th with a 7.06 score, guard Andy Levitre was 85th at 6.76 and left tackle Michael Roos was 96th at 6.56.
No Titan made the list of the top 100 defensive players, meaning none scored higher than 6.31.
I wrote recently that defensive tackle Jurrell Casey currently qualifies as the team’s best defender. I’d vote him a 7 right now, and feel like he ccould push for an 8.
Safety Bernard Pollard was No. 102 and Jason McCourty was No. 137.
The Titans, the Saints and the Jaguars were the three teams without representation in the defensive top 100.
The whole #NFLRank package is now available for your perusal.
If you want to head straight to a column I did on how Arian Foster, Maurice Jones-Drew and Johnson were all in the top 100 and no other division had three running backs make the list, you can do so with a click here.
