Tennessee Titans Day 3 draftees

Round 4 draftees Dez Fitzpatrick (wide receiver) Rashad Weaver (outside linebacker):

Wide receiver Dez Fitzpatrick was the first of two 4th round picks for Tennessee, and while he has good talent and college productivity, he simply hasn’t shown much in training camp to warrant a spot on this roster. At best, he is eighth on the WR depth chart, and unless they are able to sneak him on the practice squad, he could very well become a cut casualty before the final 53 man roster is revealed.

Rashad Weaver is next up on this list, and while he still has off-field issues to deal with, he has shown the ability to set the edge well in the run game. He could line up as the third outside linebacker behind only Bud Dupree and Harold Landry. Look for Weaver and John Simon, to spell Dupree and Landry as a part of the linebacker rotation, especially on run downs. Don’t expect too much from him as a pass rusher until he can develop and add to his repertoire of moves.

6th round draftees Racey McMath (wide receiver) and Brady Breeze (safety):

Racey McMath and safety Brady Breeze shouldn’t be counted on to make much of an impact in the coming season. McMath has provided a few flash plays here and there in training camp, but he lacks consistency. Breeze hasn’t really stood out in camp and could be a cut candidate before the regular season begins.

General Manager Jon Robinson is hoping to get better results from his 2021 class than he got from the 2020 version, but patience and tempered expectations will be needed when evaluating the majority of these rookies.
