Here’s what to expect from every Tennessee Titans draftee.
As the 2021 NFL regular season approaches, the Tennessee Titans have a number of rookies looking to make an impact early. They’re constantly under the gun, but the questions revolve around, even before these guys take the field, how they’ll perform when one tries to measure their talent and opportunities.
How will each rookie fare in their first season with the Titans? What will they look like when the pressure comes on. Those are great questions. Here’s an attempt to answer them.
Round 1 draftee Caleb Farley, cornerback:
We begin with the first-round pick, cornerback Caleb Farley. He was quite possibly the most talented corner to come out of the 2021 NFL Draft, but questions surrounding his recent back surgery in March and the possibility of that back issue lingering throughout his career can’t be ignored.
At times in training camp, he has underperformed, At times, he has flashed. Just recently when being matched up with superstar Tampa Bay wide receiver Mike Evans in joint practices, he was abused on three separate occasions. Now, while these struggles can be concerning, we shouldn’t forget that he didn’t play at all in 2020, so it may take some time for him to fully make an impact as a starting NFL cornerback.
In a crowded cornerback room with Janoris Jenkins, Kristian Fulton, and fellow rookie Elijah Molden, he could be prohibited from making an immediate impact, so look for Farley to be mixed in as the number three or four corner on the depth chart early on.
