Dez Fitzpatrick is clearly the fourth receiver on the Tennessee Titans roster.
Here’s a quick way of summing up Dez Fitzpatrick‘s current state of affairs with this Tennessee Titans team. He’s a shoo-in to make this roster as this team’s fourth-round draft choice and had Jon Robinson never pulled off a trade to get Julio Jones to Nashville, we’re probably discussing the new guy as someone who could start opposite of A.J. Brown come week one.
Unlike Batson, Fitzpatrick looks the part of an NFL receiver before he even puts the pads on. He’s six-foot-two and 210 pounds. Opposing defenses are going to feel like they’ve been in a fight following their games versus the two-tone blue. They don’t just have to crash into Derrick Henry 25 times a game. They have to worry about all of those monsters that Tennessee has at the receiver position.
Fitzpatrick can run past people. He also plays the ball well deep and can win those 50-50 balls in the air. Good luck lining up versus this guy with your fourth-best corner. Number 10 figures to make big plays all season. His fans at Louisville got a chance to watch that for quite some time. There’s no reason to believe that won’t translate to the pro game.
