50 quick notes for Tennessee Titans vs Philadelphia Eagles preseason matchup
By Will Lomas
37-43. Late round rookies and UDFAs
37. Alex Barnes, RB
I had such high hopes for Alex Barnes, but it looks like the Tennessee Titans don’t like him as much as I did coming out of college.
There is still time for him to get some momentum going and to fight over that last running back spot, but he is going to have to make some big plays sooner rather than later or else they will look elsewhere.
38. Derrick Roberson, EDGE
A pass rush specialist with good athleticism and talent on the field to match. He was in need of some good coaching and it sounds like he is a mature guy who is doing the little things right.
If he can show off his pass rush skills while also continuing to do those small things, he has a chance to make the roster much like Cameron Batson did in 2018.
39. David Long, LB
Maybe the most fun player to watch tonight on the Titans second team defense. Long was known for flying around in college and he shouldn’t do anything less than that against the Philadelphia Eagles.
40. Isaiah Mack, DL
A big nose tackle with some power, Mack is someone to watch as a fringe roster player who can help prevent those gashing runs that we saw some last year.
41. Braxton Hoyett, DL
Hoyett played with Jeffery Simmons in college at Mississippi State and he was a stout guy with some wiggle.
42. Parker Hesse, TE
Hesse is a fun story, but tonight will tell the tale. He will play a lot against 3rd stringers and will need to prove that he is more than just a story as he has to block and catch against the Eagles. I like him, and I hope he makes the practice squad at the very least.
43. Anthony Ratliff-Williams, WR
One of the more hyped UDFAs, the Tennessee Titans have a potential NFL player in Ratliff-Williams. Lets see if he can show it in a game setting.
