Every year at this time, writers and analysts are making their predictions and writing articles about who looks good out at organized team activities. The truth that any coach will tell you is they all look good in shorts.
Yesterday, I stopped by Tennessee Titans practice and watched both sides of the ball closely.
I saw the quickness that Kendall Wright brings to the receiving corps. I watched as Jake Locker took all the snaps with the first-team offense. I laughed to myself when I saw how similar the body types are of rookies William Vlachos and Mike Martin (both also wear No. 67).
I was also impressed with the size and speed of rookie linebacker Zach Brown as well as second-year players Tommie Campbell and Colin McCarthy (McCarthy must have added 10 pounds of muscle).
The most impressive player I saw was not practicing with the team, however. He was off to the side, working on his conditioning.
Kenny Britt looks like he has added at least 15 pounds of upper-body muscle. His body looks like that of Calvin Johnson from the Detroit Lions. I'm not saying that Britt will play like the best receiver in the league, but he definitely looks the part.
I asked Britt about the added muscle, and he responded, "I couldn't do anything but work out!"
Titans fans are surely hoping this is a sign of his commitment to the young teams success.
