Another big issue for the Titans at the moment is at cornerback. Alterraun Verner is a free agent and it’s possible the Titans may need to search for a new starter. If that’s the case, Roby could be worth a look in the second or third round. He’s an excellent playmaker with good coverage skills, but had his stock dip dramatically after a shaky 2013 season. He’s got the talent to be a solid corner at the next level, but will need to find a way to remain more focused and disciplined.
It’s possible the Titans could turn to Blidi Wreh-Wilson to start in place of the potentially departing Verner, but even if that happens they’ll still need more depth for their secondary. Roby might fit best as a nickel back starting off right away, anyways, while the Titans also can’t be sure Wreh-Wilson is the answer at either corner spot. Grabbing a corner like Roby early in the draft gives them a little more freedom with how their top corners shake out in 2014.
