3. Cornerback

This is a big one because it all comes back to one of the biggest issues with the Tennessee Titans, and that is health.

I still have a sinking feeling that Mike Vrabel is going to ship off Kristian Fulton to a team that doesn’t have the worst injury luck/understanding of how to prevent injuries in the NFL, for pennies on the dollar.

When he has been healthy, he has been a very good boundary corner for the Titans and in 2021 when Tennessee had a pass rush, he was exceptional.

On the other side, God bless Roger McCreary for being forced to jump in as a rookie and play more coverage snaps than anyone else on the team. He looked solid inside and outside, but his home should be on the outside. After making it through that trial by fire and with a real pass rush this season, he should take a big step forward.

One of the other forgotten players on the roster was Elijah Molden, who Mike Vrabel praised at the NFL Combine. People forget that he was a very nice slot cornerback as a rookie, though he did struggle with vertical threats in the slot. Still, his tight coverage and physicality makes him an ideal fit to start inside this season.

Finally, Sean Murphy-Bunting is the wildcard of the group. He is the epitome of versatility considering that he has spent 49% of his snaps in the slot and 51% of his snaps on the boundary, which means that he can either be a backup that can come in for anyone if they get hurt or that he could push all three of the younger corners for their starting job.

Injuries are going to happen to every team, but considering that you still have Caleb Farley, Tre Avery, and Chris Jackson as athletic depth pieces, adding any more bodies to this group is definitely an issue of wanting to get better instead of needing a starter.
