RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Beware of Tennessee's muddied linebacker situation, but if Williamson heads into Week 1 as a starter (as expected), he should maintain a grip on his status at the top. The Titans shifted him to a full-time defensive role in 2015 after he mostly played special teams as a rookie, and he responded with his first triple-digit tackle season. If he solidifies that role, he should see his snap count increase from last year's 925, increasing his upside in the process. Further boosting that upside is Williamson's blitzing potential, as 6.5 sacks in 1,738 career snaps is impressive for an inside 'backer.
Williamson should be on IDP radars after recording 79 tackles and three sacks in the final 14 games of the 2014 season as a rookie. With a year of seasoning in the team's 3-4 scheme and the addition of assistant head coach Dick LeBeau to help take the team's defense to the next level, Williamson possesses a lot of upside at the linebacker position. The 2014 fifth-round pick should be able to match last season's production at the very least if he stays healthy.
Selected in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL Draft, Williamson adds depth to the Titans' inside linebacker corps.
