Why is the best QB on the Titans WRs list not on the list?
Great Bend, Idaho — The Titans WR group is in need of some attention, and it’s starting to get a bit crowded.
The Titans have one of the best groups of WRs in the league, but with no one in the top five, the rest of the group isn’t getting much attention.
One name that seems to be getting plenty of attention is Marqise Lee.
Lee is a big receiver, but not one who makes an immediate impact in the passing game.
He’s been solid, but rarely catches a big play.
That is changing, however, with the Titans drafting former LSU WR Marqis Lee in the fifth round.
As a sophomore in 2017, Lee caught 53 passes for 788 yards and three touchdowns.
Since then, he’s been one of four WRs who has caught more than 100 passes for 1,000 yards.
With that, Lee is a lock to crack the top 5 in WRs.
Of course, Lee doesn’t have to be a top-10 WR to be considered a WR1.
Here’s what Lee’s ceiling looks like in 2020: Lee was one of three wideouts selected in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft, and he had some great numbers.
His 10 touchdowns ranked fifth on the team, and Lee caught 50.4 percent of his passes.
But he didn’t have the biggest game.
In the Titans offense, Lee only caught one touchdown, and that came in Week 2 against the Jets.
In the fourth quarter, Lee missed a big catch that should have been a touchdown for him.
It should have ended up being the touchdown for the Jets, and then the Titans would have won.
Instead, the ball went to Lee in space, where Lee caught it and had another big play to make the score 19-10.
“I think that’s just what I do,” Lee said.
“I get after the quarterback.
I’m just a guy that’s quick off the line of scrimmage and I know how to get the ball to the right place.”
Lee, however said he’s more comfortable when he’s wide open, like he was with his 51-yard touchdown in the second quarter against the Rams.
While Lee has some questions about his speed, he’ll be an excellent weapon for the Titans.
After missing three games with a hamstring injury, Lee said he hopes to play as soon as he feels healthy again.
Although he has yet to play a full season, Lee has made some impressive plays for the Jaguars, and will be a nice upgrade to a Titans offense that is sorely lacking in pass-catchers.
