With Chris Johnson and Kenny Britt no longer on the team, several players for the Tennessee Titans are set for breakout seasons. From running backs to cornerbacks, several players will become big names in Tennessee in 2014.
Here are the Tennessee Titans' five biggest breakout candidates of 2014.
Blidi Wreh-Wilson was the third pick for the Titans in 2013. Even though he only played 93 snaps this past season, he should see a huge increase in his workload with Alterraun Verner now playing for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Delanie Walker had the best season of his career in 2013 with 571 receiving yards and six touchdowns, and should be able to double his yardage and reach double-digit touchdown numbers if he can have a consistent quarterback.
Even though he has been primarily involved in the return game, new coach Ken Whisenhunt wants to get Dexter McCluster involved in the running game. With the ability to be involved in the receiving game as well as the rushing attack, McCluster is due for a huge year.
Rookie Justin Hunter finished with the fourth-most receiving yards in 2013, but that should drastically change in 2014. The organization wants to get Hunter more involved, and with only Kendall Wright and Delanie Walker to split targets with, this second-round pick from the 2013 draft will become a major contributor to the Titans' offense.
The only thing that held Kendall Wright back from being a premiere receiver in 2013 was his touchdown production. With 1,079 receiving yards and an average of 67.4 receiving yards per game, Wright is the go-to receiver for the Titans' offense in 2014.
