Might there be a few surprise adds to the Tennessee Titans’ 53-man roster?

Never count a man out that has his back against the wall. Now, that’s true in all walks of life, but it’s definitely true about football. The Tennessee Titans feel like they’re on the verge of truly being something special as a football team, and what might actually catapult them over the top could be the efforts of an unknown guy or a breakout season by someone that we haven’t spent a great deal discussing.

This is a talented football team that’s loaded with stars on both sides of the ball. We’ve long identified the starters. Tennessee’s offseason allowed them to draft for depth and add pieces that filled the holes on their roster. Now, with a unit that has more than its fair share of potential depth pieces, the Titans can answer a few questions we’ve been asking since before camp started.

Who’s that sixth cornerback and sixth wide receiver? Who are the fourth and fifth safeties? Who’s the fourth running back? Here’s an attempt to answer that question. Here are four Tennessee Titans on the back half of the depth chart that could wind up battling their way onto the first 53-man regular-season roster.
