Run Defense (Key Players: Hill, Casey, Wesley Woodyard, Morgan, Wimbley, Ropati Pitoitua, Avery Williamson)

The strength of the Titan’s run defense is up the middle, where Wesley Woodyard and Avery Williamson roam. Woodyard is extremely fast and active, while Williamson, a rookie, has nice size at 6’1″, 246 pounds.

Along the defensive line, Ropati Pitoitua is probably the stoutest run defender. Pitoitua is a huge defender at 6’8″, 298 pounds, and he uses that size very well.

Fortunately for the Ravens, Jurrell Casey can be picked on a little bit. He is predominantly a finesse player who can be pushed in the ground game. The Ravens would be wise to run at him, which should be productive while tiring out Casey.
