Titans 29th in Ground Attack Says Scouts Inc.

Chris Brown 

A recent ranking of running games by Scouts Inc. is not too kind to what the Titans look like they will run out in 2007.  The team for sure has their issues at the position, and the ranking at 29th tells as much about the team. Below is their thoughts on the Titans running attack heading into 2007:

29. Tennessee Titans

After finishing the 2006 season ranked fifth in rushing yards per game behind the legs of RB Travis Henry, the Titans come into the 2007 season with the biggest question mark in the NFL at running back. Henry was released this offseason, and the Titans haven’t replaced his production. The expected 2007 starter, LenDale White, is believed to have reported to OTAs at close to 260 pounds. The team spent its 2007 second-round pick on Chris Henry from the University of Arizona. Henry is a junior who came out early after having marginal college production. His draft status skyrocketed after Henry had an excellent combine and individual workout. The wild card in this group is veteran RB Chris Brown, who re-signed with the team. Brown was on the outs with management last season, and the former 1,000-yard rusher was inactive for a number of games. Should Brown find his early career form, the Titans’ rushing attack could be better then advertised. With QB Vince Young still feeling his way as a young starter, it is imperative the Titans back him up with a solid run game. As of right now, it is tough to see that coming to fruition.
