No Tennessee Titans fan will complain if this team double-dips at cornerback.
No matter how solid of a Tennessee Titans fan you might be, there had to be times when watching them play defense had to wear on you. It couldn’t have been too long into the 2020 season that you probably said something like this to yourselves. “These guys have got to be able to stop somebody if they’re going to put a run together”.
Weeks went by, and forget stats. The eyeball test tells us that there was no improvement. They made good to great quarterbacks look even better than they were at times. They weren’t too much better defending the passing attacks that were led by some pretty pedestrian guys.
The Titans were near the bottom of the NFL in just about every statistical category that any of us cares about. Then, it happened. They lost Malcolm Butler and Adoree Jackson, but they gained Janoris Jenkins, Kevin Johnson, recently, another defensive back, Chris Jones.
There will be replacements for Butler in the NFL Draft. Kristian Fulton will be back after an injury-laden rookie campaign. He’s going to be good. Nobody will be surprised if Tennessee takes a corner in the upcoming selection meeting. Some believe they should take two. Many of you know who the best prospects are at the position. Here’s an attempt to identify three guys who should be available late assuming the Titans do indeed double-dip.
