Here are my guesses of who I think WILL win the position battles...
#2 QB Battle
I don't think we'll pay Kerry Collins that much to backup VY. Sims is an OK backup QB, he's cheaper than Collins, and more experienced that Rusty Smith.
#3 RB Battle
Right now, Stafon Johnson allegedly has the edge. However, I think Blount will play very well during the preseason and lock-up the #3 RB spot. Blount just seems to be the type of bruising power-back that Fisher likes -- the type that Lendale White was supposed to be but never was. Plus, with some of the health concerns surrounding Stafon Johnson, I could see him being placed on the Practice Squad for a year (unless some team scoops him up, which is a possibility).
#4-#6 WR Battle (Pick 3)
Lavelle Hawkins, Damian Williams, & Marc Mariani
Hawkins is apparently playing out of his mind this offseason and appears to have a spot locked-up. Damian Williams should make it too because of his draft position and his KR/PR abilities. Lastly, I think Mariani could sneak in because of his return abilities and his good offseason workouts.
#2 TE Battle
I'd like to see Cook get more playing time, but I think the Titans will use Stevens as the #2 TE in Alge Crumpler's old blocking-TE role.
#1-#2 DE Battle (Pick 2)
Jason Babin & William Hayes
Morgan's the highly touted draft-pick and Ford's the dynamic pass-rusher. But I just have a gut feeling that Washburn goes with Babin as the opening-day starter. No evidence to support this whatsoever though.
#3 DT Battle
He's got unique size and abilities; and I think he will (and should) beat out the under-performing Haye.
#1-#3 LB Battle (Pick 3)
David Thornton, Stephen Tulloch, & Will Witherspoon
I'd rather see Curran starting instead of Thornton; but I think the McRath suspension will result in the Titans going with the veteran (Thornton) over the rookie (Curran).
#3 CB Battle
I don't trust Tye Hill or Ryan Mouton, and I'm not sure that the Titans' coaches do either. So Verner is the pick here because he hasn't done anything to garner mistrust (as weird as that sounds).
Safety Cut (Who DOESN'T make the team)
I really, REALLY hope that Johnson & Rolle make the team and that Nickey gets cut. However, I've learned to accept the fact that Nickey (who really only contributes to special teams) is a Fisher favorite and will always be on the opening-day roster. Basically...I'll believe that Nickey's cut when I see it.
