2. Ryan Tannehill, Titans

At number two comes the Titans' current starting quarterback, Ryan Tannehill. The word "current" is key, here, because the Titans have two youngsters sitting behind him that would jump at an opportunity to replace him.

The Titans drafted Malik Willis last year, and Will Levis this year, and both have been in heated competition throughout the summer and preseason. Still, Tannehill has looked far superior throughout that process. In a shocking development, Willis improved drastically and looks to be ahead of Levis on the depth chart.

For now, the veteran Tannehill will keep his job. Throughout camp, Tannehill has said things along the lines of feeling youthful again, being ready for the season and hopefully to lead the Titans back to the postseason if he has his way.

In a forgettable season last year, Tannehill's year was cut short due to injury and he threw for 2,536 yards, 13 touchdowns and six interceptions in 12 starts. With the addition of DeAndre Hopkins and Treylon Burks entering Year 2, fans are hopeful that Tannehill has at least one more good season in him before the team hands over the reins.
