Alright for the Titans its:
Kenny Britt - I think with the weapons that the Titans have on offensive, he has a chance to have a big year as the slot receiver, red zone option
Jared Cook - Most athletic TE to come out of the draft last year, one of the best in the draft. No blocking ability to speak of, but offensively, I'm thinking he is going to do big things. Probably not this season, but seasons to come
Ryan Mouton - Going to either step right into the nickel back role, or become it. Has shown ability to perform well in the preseason, and is being brought in to become a starter in the cover 2.
Javon Ringer - Maybe the Titans can get a 3 RB system going like the Giants did last season, keeping RB's fresh. He could also be brought in to replace LenDale (who is a FA the following season). He has shown that he is lightning quick in the preseason
Maiava was a 4th round pick. Our 6th round pick, Don Carey, was scooped by Jacksonville and then put on their IR.
David Veikune is a long term project by virtue of the fact that Mangini is having him learn both ILB and OLB, so it remains to be seen how much he will contribute. I personally think he's going to push Barton for time as the season goes on in the middle. He should also see time as a pass rusher.
Massaquoi won the battle between he and Robiskie for now, but who knows how much he will play since Cribbs and Furrey appear to be ahead of him on the depth chart. Should be interesting. I hope the Browns run 4 WR sets because they have a talented WR group
For some reason I thought he was in the 6th because I just thought Day 2. I was thinking about putting Don Carey on there but he isn't on the team anymore.
I read this piece earlier today about Percy Harvin by Peter King and just wanted to post it, there some of the reasons I'm pretty excited about seeing Percy Harvin play for the first time:
My favorite on-field training camp memory this summer came in Mankato, Minn., during rookie all-purpose player Percy Harvin's second week of practice. Harvin, a 5-foot-11, 184-pound whippet, lined up in the shotgun as the Wildcat quarterback, and had his hands extended toward center John Sullivan, expecting the snap as he called out signals. Suddenly Harvin looked to his left, apparently expecting slotback Adrian Peterson to come in motion. When Peterson didn't move right away, Harvin whirled his left hand around and around, like a third-base coach waiving a runner home, and Peterson sprinted in motion. Harvin took the snap, then shoved a forward handoff to Peterson as he passed.
How interesting, this split-second moment in time. Here was a rookie still learning the way from the dorm to the practice field, and when he got out on the field, he was anything but a rookie. Harvin was comfortable enough in his own skin to say to the best back in football, in effect, Dude, you better not be slow coming in motion on my watch. Let's go!
When I brought this up to Harvin the other day, he seemed almost sheepish. He remembered it, all right, but said it happened because he and Peterson hadn't had much opportunity to work on the play yet. Harvin was doing a lot of different things in camp, and I think Sunday in Cleveland we'll see him as the game's most interesting weapon. I expect him to play four spots: slot receiver (maybe 15 snaps), wide receiver (15, and maybe more if Bernard Berrian's ouchy hamstring doesn't allow him to play much), Wildcat quarterback and punt returner (maybe five apiece). He might return kickoffs. He might line up as a running back. And if Berrian can't go, I bet Harvin starts alongside Sidney Rice.
