A look at the Tennessee Titans “final” rookie additions.
The Tennessee Titans had a strong, but not perfect 2020 NFL Draft class where they picked up six new players.
However, the bulk of their rookies will come from UDFA which is true of nearly every team in the NFL. So, it is a little bit exciting to see who the Titans added in UDFA thanks to their official release today.
"OL Aaron Brewer (Texas State)ILB Cale Garrett (Missouri)TE Tommy Hudson (Arizona State).ILB Khaylan Kearse-Thomas (Arizona State)T Brandon Kemp (Valdosta State)WR Mason Kinsey (Berry College)K Tucker McCann (Missouri)T Anthony McKinney (TCU)RB Cameron Scarlett (Stanford)NT Kobe Smith (South Carolina)DT Teair Tart (Florida International)WR Nick Westbrook (Indiana)WR Kristian Wilkerson (SE Missouri State)WR Kyle Williams (Arizona State)"
Out of that list, Dane Brugler only had one player with a fringe draftable grade while three others were priority free agents.
Those players are (in order): Cale Garrett (LB), Tucker McCann (K), Teair Tart (DT), and Mason Kinsey (WR).
While it isn’t exactly the treasure trove that fans might have wanted to see in free agency, it is encouraging that all four of those positions are places where the Titans could use more competition and depth.
-Tucker McCann could flat out win a competition with Greg Joseph considering McCann was the kicker and punter for Mizzou. If he can be consistent and kick balls through the endzone, that would be a massive improvement from this team.
-Mason Kinsey is the Berry College player that seems poised for a Tre McBride career arc with the Titans. Not great at anything, but a lot of hustle and Brugler described him like this: “…he has a knack for finding the blind spot of defenders, finishing catches and out-working everyone else.” that seems like a Mike Vrabel, Jon Robinson sort of guy. While I don’t think he is the next Adam Humphries, maybe he is a better version of Cam Batson.
