2021 NFL Power Rankings: Tennessee Titans

Throughout the 2021 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the Tennessee Titans rank in terms of average, best and worst:

Below you will find a post-draft roundup for the Titans in our consensus 2021 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 10

Player who benefited most from draft: TE Anthony Firkser

Firkser remains the most likely candidate to be the lead tight end for the Titans because they didn't use any draft picks to add to the group. The Titans also avoided selecting a slot receiver to take over the third-down specialist role. That leaves Firkser as the best option for quarterback Ryan Tannehill to target when they need to move the chains. Firkser had 19 receptions on third down last year, of which 14 (74%) resulted in a first down. Firkser's fortunes could change if the Titans are active in the post-June 1 free-agent sweepstakes. -- Turron Davenport

NFL.com -- Rank: 12

Should there be concern with the Titans on offense? Tennessee has been a juggernaut on that side of the ball in recent years, but that was before offensive coordinator Arthur Smith left for a big chair in Atlanta and No. 2 wideout Corey Davis got the bag from the Jets. Any offense that has Ryan Tannehill, Derrick Henry and A.J. Brown will enjoy dynamic days, but it's fair to wonder if the unit will take a step back considering the loss of personnel. General manager Jon Robinson didn't seem too concerned during the draft: He didn't use a pick on an offensive skill player until he snagged Louisville wide receiver Dez Fitzpatrick in the fourth round.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 20

Every year we pick them in this area, then they somehow find their way into the playoffs. They will again be a tough, feisty team. Have they done enough to improve the defense?

USA Today -- Rank: 21

Second-rounder Dillon Radunz should solve their right tackle problem while rookie CBs Caleb Farley (Round 1) and Elijah Molden (Round 3) should enable this defense to get off the field on third down more effectively. The only unresolved issue is finding a receiver to make defenses pay for double covering WR A.J. Brown.

The Athletic -- Rank: 9

It may be hard for the Titans to be as good as they were last year when they went 11-5. They were 7-2 in one-score games and had the NFL's sixth-best injury luck. This offseason, they lost Arthur Smith as their play-caller, and No. 2 wide receiver Corey Davis and tight end Jonnu Smith left in free agency. The Titans are one A.J. Brown injury away from having one of the NFL's worst pass-catching groups. The additions of Bud Dupree and Denico Autry on defense should help. But overall, this looks like a team that's going to take a step back.
