Big week for the Tennessee Titans
There are only two teams that get a jump start on free agency and those are the Tennessee Titans and Green Bay Packers, the two teams coaching the Pro Bowl.
While the Tennessee Titans only have two players in the event (because it is based on popularity and not talent) the entire coaching staff will be there. Even though being in the Pro Bowl doesn’t mean you are the best at your position, it does mean that you are definitely above average and that you have a pretty good highlight reel.
As exciting as that is, there is another event going on this week that will draw the eyes of all 32 front offices. That is the Senior Bowl in Mobile, AL where some of the best draft prospects in the country will gather.
New changes to the interview rules mean that instead of being first-come-first-serve, teams will be able to interview every prospect for up to four hours over the course of the week. It is going to be hard not to overreact to seeing “Tennessee Titans GM talked to [insert prospect here] at the Senior Bowl” but it is more about which players they interview at the Senior Bowl and then who they bring in for official visits this year.
The Titans are uniquely positioned to have eyes at both events, and there are going to be some notes taken by this franchise.
Let’s take a look at what the Titans’ coaches might be looking at during the Pro Bowl and then focus on some prospects that might catch the eyes of scouts this week at the Senior Bowl.
