Tennessee Titans SCB Elijah Molden

The easy plug-and-play solution at cornerback is to replace Farley with Borders, and then let Kristian Fulton and Jackrabbit Jenkins play in the slot and on the outside respectively.

But, let’s say that Mike Vrabel goes with the old idiom of trying to get the ‘three best guys on the field’ and doesn’t think that Borders is the fourth-best cornerback on the roster. What if he opted to move Fulton to the outside where he played last year and where he played in college? That opens the door for a new slot corner to step in.

Luckily, the Tennessee Titans have a picture-perfect slot cornerback sitting on the bench in the form of Elijah Molden. Chris Jackson has gotten more praise, but there is a good chance that changes as Molden adjusts to the NFL and gets some preseason games under his belt.

Most people thought that Molden was the steal of the draft for the Tennessee Titans and long-term it is hard to see a world where he doesn’t take a starting job as either a safety or a slot cornerback.

In this scenario, the Titans would probably have their most talented and athletic combination (that excludes Farley) even though it might hurt Kristian Fulton in the long run because he would have to learn two different positions quickly.
