3. Marcus Mariota
This guy: Matt LaFleur. The new offensive coordinator should be able to take Mariota’s game to the next level. LaFleur was the quarterbacks’ coach in Washington for Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins. LaFleur also coached Matt Ryan for his 2017 MVP Season. Hopefully, Mariota will be added to the list of amazing quarterbacks LaFleur has coached.
2. Adoree Jackson
Adoree Jackson’s rookie season in no way can be described as bad. Jackson was tied for the most pass break-ups by rookies in the NFL. Jackson did not produce any interceptions or kick/punt returns for touchdowns. Jackson did show flashes. Hopefully, behind veteran corners, Jackson will take the next step in his career.
1. Derrick Henry/Dion Lewis
When the Titans released Demarco Murray and signed Dion Lewis, the Titans gained one of the best running-back duos in the NFL. Last year, behind Murray, Henry averaged 4.2 yards per carry, finishing with 744 rushing yards. Lewis averaged 5 yards per carry last year in New England. Lewis finished with 896 rushing yards with 214 passing yards. Hopefully, these 2 backs can gell together with each other and the coaching staff. We are definitely looking at 2 backs with loads of potential, each bound for 1,000 yard rushing seasons.
