5. Desmond King, SCB
King has been decorated as one of the better slot cornerbacks and return men since he was drafted, but after falling out with a failing L.A. Chargers organization he ended up on the trade block and from there he ended up in Tennessee.
Since then he has been used as the team’s designated slot cornerback and the results have been fine.
Not great, but it is hard to be great when there is no pass rush in front of you and when you are asked to play so far off of your target.
I think that King makes a ton of sense and the Titans’ long-term slot cornerback with Kristian Fulton as the swiss army knife behind the trio of King, Malcolm Butler, and Adoree Jackson. However, it feels like this defense is headed for a complete overhaul this offseason, and King hasn’t done enough to stand out as a player who deserves a new contract after the way the defense has performed the last two months.
A great few games could lead to a new deal with the Titans, but he is going to have to earn it.
