Latest Titans wide receiver outlook
By: Jake Rajala
The Tennessee Titans moved on from the very explosive A.J. Brown, but it’s clear that the show must go on for the Titans WR unit. The Titans showcase the shifty, underrated Robert Woods, the exciting rookie Treylon Burks, and the third-year WR Nick Westbrook-Ikhine. PFF slotted the Titans as the 26th best WR group entering the 2022 season. I really believe love the outlook for the uncertain, 22-year-old WR that was taken by the Titans in the first round of the 2022 draft. Hence, I expect the Titans to be at least a middle-of-the-pack WR group in the upcoming season.
The former LA Rams wideout ousted 1,219 yds and six TDs in 2018, 1,134 yds in 2019, and 936 yds in 2020. In Marques Colston-like fashion, the productive wideout has still failed to make the Pro Bowl in his career. It’s been widely noted that he’s had a fantastic training camp thus far. Woods is under contract with the Titans until the 2026 off-season.
The reigning one seed in the AFC (yes, you read that correctly) will anticipate magic from their WR2 Treylon Burks. Burks impressively notched 1,104 yds and 11 TDs in 2021. He had conditioning issues in training camp, but he’s flashed excellence on and off this off-season. It would be an understatement to say the Titans have one of the most underrated WR duos in the league.
The third starting wideout is none other than Nick Westbrook-Ikhine. He’s also a young gun (25 years old) and coming off a modest 2021 campaign: 38 receptions, 476 yds, and 4 TDs. He registered a modest 68.7 grade by PFF last season. Per AtoZ Sports Nashville, Tanny has a lot of confidence in the young wideout. He’s undoubtedly one of the biggest x-factors on the Titans squad.
