4. Tennessee Titans WR Racey McMath (6th round)

Wide receiver Racey McMath is on this list because of the buzz he has created in camp even though he didn’t do much against the Atlanta Falcons in the first preseason game.

Any time you draft a player in the 4th round or later and they make they are active on game day as a rookie, you have hit. If that is the bar, then it looks like McMath is going to be a hit with the upside of potentially being a homerun.

As a special teams player, he clearly has the size, speed, and (most importantly) the willingness to make plays in the third phase of the game. While he still needs to clean up his releases and knowing how and when to fight for the ball, the raw potential is clearly there.

The Falcons game saw Mason Kinsey featured heavily, but I have to wonder whether the Titans try to force the ball some to McMath in these next two preseason games to see if he is making progress as a receiver.
