5 Tennessee Titans Who Could Make Pro Bowl in 2014

The Tennessee Titans finished the 2013 season with a 7-9 record and found themselves on the outside of the NFL playoffs looking in. New head coach Ken Whisenhunt and defensive coordinator Ray Horton will bring a new style of play and identity to the team. Along with the new makeover in the front office, the Titans need its players to play at a high level in 2014 if it plans on getting back into the playoffs.

The No. 16 pick in the 2010 NFL is finally starting to come into his own. Morgan dealt with injuries early on in his career, but had a breakout season in 2012 with 35 tackles and 6.5 sacks and he's yet to reach his ceiling. Last year Morgan put up similar numbers to 2012 with 29 tackles and six sacks. I expect even more from him under new defensive coordinator Ray Horton, who led the Cleveland Browns to one of the best defenses in the NFL.

Wright was a big part of the Titans offense in 2013 with 94 receptions and 1,079 receiving yards. He finished No. 7 amongst all wide receivers in receptions and I expect that number to stay in the same ballpark this season. He still remained one of the NFL's top receivers even though quarterback Jake Locker was anything but elite at his position. The Titans need the targets for Wright to continue as he's a big part of the Titans' offense.

He's one half of the McCourty twins and he's also the best cornerback on the Titans. McCourty was a sixth-round pick in the NFL Draft a few years back and he's done nothing but prove everyone wrong that passed up on him. Right now he is entering the prime of his career at 27 years old and he's one of the main reasons this Titans' defense has potential to surprise a lot of people this year.

The Titans made a splash in the offseason when the team signed Levitre to a six-year, 46.8 million dollar deal. It had a need on the offensive line following the 2013 season and Levitre quickly fills a lot of the team's problems. He was a staple in the Bills' offensive line and he will be the same for Titans. He's strong, quick and sure to free up a lot of running lanes for its newly acquired rookie Bishop Sankey and veteran RB Shonn Green.

The second-team All-Pro defensive tackle is a beast on the Titans' defensive line. Last season he finished with a ridiculous 10.5 sacks and 55 tackles and those numbers are even more difficult to put up when he's getting double-teamed on almost every play. Casey was deserving of a Pro Bowl bid in 2013, but he could find himself back in the hunt this season. It will be hard to top his previous season, but I'm certainly not doubting him.
