Tennessee Titans have talented rookies

The preseason seems like months ago, but way back then there was a lot of hype about some of the Tennessee Titans rookies.

In fact, with most of the Titans veterans resting up to make sure they were at their absolute best in Week 1 (insert sarcastic comment/eye roll emoji here), the Titans rookie class had some very nice moments.

Most notably, Elijah Molden won the slot cornerback role thanks in large part to a dominating performance against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in joint practice and in their Week 2 preseason matchup.

Unfortunately, the Tennessee Titans seemed to ignore some other talented rookies who deserved a shot to play in Week 1.

Now, Caleb Farley isn’t going to be on this list because I think that Farley’s entire rookie season will be about easing him into a role and working on his technique. Since he skipped all of 2020 and he obviously had to deal with his back issues, the plan is to be absolutely sure that he is ready to be the CB1 on this team in 2022.

If he can step in and play before that then that would be a great bonus, but remember that cornerback is one of the positions that face the hardest transition from college to the NFL. Kristian Fulton looked great last week against the Arizona Cardinals, but two months ago there were questions about whether he would even start on this defense.

These are the three rookies who have earned a shot to get some playing time in Week 2.
