This season, no one is really sure what to expect from the Tennessee Titans. Of course, it's easier for fans to be more optimistic.

But, are the Titans really going to be a threat? Signing DeAndre Hopkins certainly didn't hurt, and having an underrated defense that can be one of the league's grittiest is also a plus.

The quarterback position, though, is one that is anything but settled. That's the big question mark. If that position can get completely set in stone, this Titans team has a much better shot at contending for the division and possibly something more.

For now, it's all about training camp and watching the position battles unfold. Specifically, let's talk about some rookies who could make noise and potentially earn themselves a job.

1. Trey Wolff, K

Last year, the Titans signed Caleb Shudak as an undrafted free agent out of Iowa. Spending the majority of last season out with injury, Shudak appeared in one game in Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals. He ended up going 3-for-4 in his NFL debut before Bullock returned. Shudak was then released in early December.

This season, the kicking battle will be between Shudak and another undrafted free agent, Trey Wolff, who was signed this year out of Texas Tech. Last year with the Red Raiders, Wolff went 21-for-25 on field goals and made 41 of 42 extra points.

At this point, the kicking job is up for grabs. No one really knows whether or not Shudak is any good, and if Wolff has an impressive camp and preseason, he very well could overtake the job which currently belongs to the second-year pro.
