Jon Robinson has done wonders as the Tennessee Titans general manager, and he’s getting the respect and recognition that he deserves.
Jon Robinson has only spent the last three seasons as the Tennessee Titans’ GM, with 2020 being his fourth season. His three seasons as the Titans GM are also his first three seasons as a general manager, and he has knocked it out of the park.
The life span of an NFL general manager with a single team isn’t very long. Either you find a way to win, or the owner will find someone that can. Titans general manager Jon Robinson has so far defied the odds in his first job as a GM, and he has done a great job improving the Titans.
He’s done a great job in the draft building the Titans’ core on both offense and defense. He’s built the Titans into a contender, and that was proven with the Titans making it all the way to the AFC Championship last season.
One of his most recent notable moves was trading for Ryan Tannehill, who single handily saved the Titans’ season and now gives Titans fans hope for the future at quarterback.
With all of the work he has done, he has earned the respect and recognition he deserves for his accomplishments. That’s why Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com ranked Robinson as a top ten GM in his most recent power rankings.
Robinson came in at No. 8 in the power rankings, and I wouldn’t be surprised if we see him rise again in next year’s power rankings.
“Robinson’s draft record was already impressive before last year, when he selected Offensive Rookie of the Year candidate A.J. Brown and impact first-round defensive tackle Jeffery Simmons. All of the Titans’ transactions — including the hiring of Mike Vrabel — have a point of view. The organizational cohesion — built around physicality — helps explain why the team was greater than the sum of its parts in 2019. Robinson expertly navigated the transition from Marcus Mariota (whom Robinson inherited), while picking up Ryan Tannehill at a major discount (for one season, anyway).”
At No. 8, Robinson was in between Seahawks GM John Schneider (No. 7) and Colts GM Chris Ballard (No. 9). Robinson is the highest-ranked GM in the AFC South and jumped up five spots from last season. Bill Belichick once again leads the rankings.
The 2020 NFL Draft is right around the corner, and if you remember last year’s draft, Robinson found some starters, so let’s see if he can find a couple more this year.
