Tennessee Titans training camp notes: Day 7, Corey Davis leaves early
By Will Lomas
Big day for my sleepers
There are a few players I am really excited to see this preseason. Just check the receipts:
Anthony Firkser got some nice publicity today when Scott Barrett posted that he had the 5th best EPA of anyone in the NFL last year.
Along with Firkser getting some attention, Sharif Finch has been a starter so far in camp and Corey Levin even got some starting reps at center a few days ago. So while my stable of sleepers looks great so far, there is another player that I was quietly high on.
That would be Derick Roberson who I liked as a late round/UDFA sleeper and who the Tennessee Titans grabbed after the draft.
Well, today one person noticed him in a big way.
Roberson’s path to the Titans starting roster is the same as Finch’s last year, he needs to be great on special teams, stay healthy and be versatile. Both guys have the athleticism and size to play off the ball if they need to for some reason, but they thrive rushing the passer and getting upfield.
Could Roberson be the Titans latest UDFA sleeper?
