Titans rookie updates
Since the team decided to basically ignore the free agency process (Vic Beasley doesn’t count), the Titans sent a message that the foundation of their team was in place. Key positions like left tackle, cornerback, quarterback, running back, and EDGE were locked in, so the offseason was more focused on building depth and adding young playmakers where it was possible.
However, the Titans are two weeks away from their first game of the season and no one knows which rookies are going to get a chance to play.
The assumption is that the only rookie with a chance to start is Kristian Fulton, and even that is probably going to be as the third corner on the field in the Titans nickel package. Whether he comes in to play on the boundary and pushes Adoree Jackson inside, or whether he comes on the field to be the slot corner is still TBD.
Right now there are more questions than answers from this group, and that didn’t get better in today’s practice so I decided to make a list of the Titans rookies and put them into categories. Let’s start with the positives from this class and talk about the notable things that they did today (and a little bit of what we have seen from them so far).
