Tennessee Titans 53-man roster projection: July 2
By Will Lomas
EDGE: 6 (36 Total)
Sure things: Harold Landry, Cam Wake, Sharif Finch (ST), DeAndre Walker (ST)
Numbers favor: Kamalei Correa (ST), Derick Roberson (ST)
Harold Landry may have the most growth potential of any player on this list at any position. He is an athletic marvel with all the traits that make great EDGEs from the bend, to the relentless effort, to the frame, and all the way to his college production.
If there is one player who has a chance to step up and become the next nationally known Titan it is Landry.
However, the current Titans player on this list that everyone will know (even if they don’t know he is a Titan) is Cameron Wake. The future Hall of Famer is best cast as a pass rush specialist who can mentor the young generation of EDGEs on the Titans roster while also being and effective hunter on defense.
Behind them isn’t a name you might expect, but Sharif Finch is the next EDGE who I would lock up. In fact, I would argue that he should be the starter opposite Harold Landry and that he has shown up more frequently than any young EDGE rusher not named Derrick Morgan in the last decade.
The last safe pick is DeAndre Walker the rookie from Georgia with a lot of potential. Not only was he a steal in the draft, but Mike Vrabel seems to have taken a liking to him which can only mean good things for a young EDGE.
Kamalei Correa and Derick Roberson round out this list. Correa is cheap and had flashes last year while Roberson is also cheap and has huge upside potential. You really hate to cut cheap EDGEs that can actually play in the NFL or at the very least contribute on special team.
