What Titans position group would you add to the Falcons?

New, comments

Right now, there’s one in particular that stands out.

Thus far, picking a position group from an opponent has been a relatively simple thing, at least on my end. Vikings? Defensive ends. Eagles? Tackles. Colts? Guards. The trickier piece comes when you play an opponent that doesn’t have any particularly loaded position groups to draw on, or at least ones that don’t map up to the biggest needs on this Falcons roster.

Unfortunately, due to the injury to Keanu Neal, the Falcons now have a bit of an issue at safety. That leads us to this week’s opponent.

The Titans don’t have a perfect safety group, but they have one that I’d import to Atlanta in a heartbeat, especially now. Kevin Byard was a Pro Bowler during his eight interception season in 2017 and was very good a year despite the less gaudy interception total, and he would be a huge addition for Atlanta. Kenny Vaccaro is...fine, but the other big attraction here is 21-year-old safety Amani Hooker, who despite his modest draft status has a lot of potential. Hooker to develop and Byard to dominate would be nice, even if that group is only a marginal upgrade over Ricardo Allen and what the Falcons have today. I’m sad again.

There’s not many other groups on the Titans I would take, but knock my socks off with your choice if it’s a different one.
