The NFL Draft is optimism season, so let’s be optimistic on the Titans rookies.
The Tennessee Titans added six new players to their roster with last month’s NFL Draft. Some of them will be forced to climb for roster spots, some of them are set for roles as instant impact players, while the other’s fall somewhere in between.
No matter what their Week One projections might be, the truth of the matter is that it’s far too early in the offseason process to predict with any accuracy where on the depth the rookie class is going to end up.
A player like Isaiah Wilson, who projects as a developmental player in the league, might be further along than anyone thought and ready to take the field as a starting right tackle. Meanwhile, a player like Cole McDonald, who showed the skills to be a solid NFL backup at the college level, might struggle against NFL competition and miss out on a roster spot to Logan Woodside.
Point being, there’s no way to be entirely realistic on where the newest batch of Titans players will end their rookie seasons. We can, however, play the role of optimist and try to realistically project what the best case scenarios for each new player would look like.
From the Day One starters to the special team’s contributors, let’s break down each of the six rookies and try to figure out what the dream rookie season would look like for both the players and the team.
