20. Tennessee Titans What’s New in 2019: Former tight ends coach Arthur Smith takes over at OC, which isn’t traditionally a move that brings a lot of offensive innovations with it. Outside of that, the biggest off-season move was to bring in Ryan Tannehill to backup Mariota. Tannehill has only been a starter to this point and with Mariota’s health perennially up in the air, it would not be a surprise to see him log serious minutes there. Adam Humphries was also signed in FA to help out in slot duty and he turned down a big offer from the Patriots to do so.  Roster Strengths: Offensive Line – Lewan-Saffold-Jones-Davis(?)-Conklin is one very powerful looking unit, that’s a lot of beef to deal with Safety – Kevin Byard has become one the game’s best players, let alone among safeties. Kenny Vaccarro bounced back with a solid year in Tennessee last season and they re-upped on him for 2019. Amani Hooker and Dane Cruikshank have also have roles to play this year. Inside Linebacker – Jayon Brown was great last year alongside Wesley Woodyard and 1st round rookie Rashaan Evans came on well down the stretch. Elsewhere – Jurrell Casey is still very much the jewel of that defensive line. Cameron Wake and Harold Landry feels like it could be a step-up at the edge spots if Wake still has it at 37 and Landry can take another step forward. Derrick Henry quietly accumulated 12 rushing touchdowns in 2018, he can find the end zone if nothing else.  Roster Weaknesses: Quarterback – One of the game’s great enigmas, we still really don’t know what we have with Marcus Mariota who is one of the hardest players to evaluate. He still has the talent to lead this team, but his health will play a big part in that. Explosive Playmakers – It’s a pretty talented group of receivers, but a little one-paced. Corey Davis, AJ Brown and Adam Humphries might all do their best work inside from the slot and there’s an absence of a reliable deep threat and that could limit what they are able to do. Dion Lewis was outplayed in his first season as a Titan, but there’s not a lot of juice outside of him at running back.  Breakout Player: Rashaan Evans – Injuries slowed the first half of 2018, but he came on well down the stretch and gives the team some inside/outside flexibility with his ability to rush off the edge. How they can win in 2019: Really, of all teams in the league, this one comes down to the play at the quarterback position. Many things are in place for them to have another run at the playoffs and they have a head coach which will squeeze every breath of willing out of this team, but a full healthy season from Mariota is what they need more than anything else. They have an identify in the ground game and an offensive line who can bully their opponents if their starting unit can stay healthy. It's not such a good situation behind them and getting their receivers to mesh with each other will be key and become threats at all levels of the field. Delanie Walker and Jonnu Smith might have roles to play as seem busters down the field to get that to work.  On defense, they look more stout than dangerous. It would be good to see more threats emerging as an attacking defense outside of Casey, who is always disruptive. Landry needs to take a step forward as a starting outside pass-rusher and needs to improve as a run defender to stay as one. Hopefully the Titans can find a role for Cam Wake at his advanced age, even as a pass-rush specialist. The pass defense was pretty good last year, but they'll be facing some premium opposition quarterbacks this year and increased pressure up front can help the stay that way.  Predicted record 2019: 7-9 - They could very well play better than last year’s playoff team with an improved roster, but it's still a one which could hit a ceiling hard this year with too many questions around the quarterback position and whether their new OC can be creative enough to keep defenses on the back foot without explosive playmakers at his disposal
