On PFF's assessment of Titans' starters
By Paul Kuharsky
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- How many elite starters do the Tennessee Titans currently have? How many high quality starters?
Pro Football Focus has been going team-by-team though projected lineups.
Their answers: Zero elite starters and 4.5 high quality ones. (How a half? Kendall Wright carries a combined rating, part high quality starter, part solid starter/valuable role player). The four ahead of him are defensive tackle Jurrell Casey, defensive end Derrick Morgan, left tackle Michael Roos, and left guard Andy Levitre.
I always offer a reminder that while PFF diligently grades players, their staff creates one collective, largely subjective opinion. I appreciate that we have access to their grades and ratings, but they don’t rank as gospel.
I differ with them some here. Morgan is a good player, but to rate him the same as Casey is a stretch.
