3. Tennessee Titans CB Caleb Farley (1st round)
The big concern for Caleb Farley was whether or not he would be able to practice during training camp. Before the draft, no one was concerned about his skill, athletic ability, or anything else, it was all about whether or not he would be able to put pads on before Week 1 of the season.
Well, even though he didn’t play in the preseason game, Farley has cleared that bar and he has been practicing in training camp already.
There is no reason to rush Farley into the starting lineup when Jackrabbit Jenkins and Kristian Fulton look like starting-caliber boundary cornerbacks. Even though Tennessee Titans fans haven’t seen Farley in action yet, the fact that he is practicing and getting his legs back underneath him with no concerns about his health is the important thing.
Will he drop in these rankings if he never has a padded practice vs another team? Maybe, but if this is a list of long-term value then it is hard to push Farley too far down the board when he has done exactly what Titans fans hoped he would do after he was announced as the pick in April.
