Outside Linebacker (5)

  • Harold Landry
  • Bud Dupree
  • Rashad Weaver (R)
  • John Simon
  • Ola Adeniyi

This is the best crew of pass rushers the Titans have assembled in some time.

Weaver dominated in his preseason debut on Friday, Adeniyi provides special teams versatility and Simon is a reliable veteran.

Inside Linebacker (4)

  • Rashaan Evans
  • Jayon Brown
  • David Long, Jr.
  • Monty Rice (R)

This is a solid group of inside linebackers. Keeping five probably isn’t necessary, especially since the Titans don’t have a fifth player at this position who appears worthy of being on an NFL active roster.

Defensive Line (5)

  • Jeffery Simmons
  • Denico Autry
  • Larrell Murchison
  • Teair Tart
  • Kyle Peko

The fifth and final spot in this group was the hardest to decide on, as this is the Titans’ most top-heavy position. The three starters (Tart, Simmons, Autry) are awesome, but the depth isn’t great.

Trevon Coley looked to be the leader of the pack for the final spot before going down with a potentially season-ending injury, so Peko gets it, here.

Cornerback (6)

  • Caleb Farley (R)
  • Kristian Fulton
  • Janoris Jenkins
  • Elijah Molden (R)
  • Chris Jackson
  • Breon Borders

It’s hard to imagine any NFL team has a deeper group of cornerbacks than the Titans. All of these six players could wind up being key contributors for the Titans.

Safety (4)

  • Kevin Byard
  • Amani Hooker
  • Dane Cruikshank
  • Matthias Farley

Rookie Brady Breeze hasn’t done much in Training Camp, and Farley is probably a better player at this point. The team could end up stashing Breeze, who had to be carted off during the Titans’ preseason opener, on injured reserve.

Specialist (3)

  • Stephen Gostkowski
  • Brett Kern
  • Morgan Cox

No, Gostkowski is not on the roster. Yes, he’s better than the kickers who are.
