WR Devin Aguilar - Aguilar has very limited skills and is not blessed with the speed someone of his size needs to make it in the NFL. He has almost no chance of making the final roster.
TE Brandon Barden - According to Sports Illustrated:
Physical tight end with marginal athletic ability for the next level. Bends knees, plays with leverage and works blocks. Extends his hands and offers the quarterback a nice target as a receiver. Uses his frame to shield away defenders. Finds the open spot in the middle of the field and is a solid short-range target. Lacks a quick release off the line into pass routes. Has poor speed and is not a downfield threat. Lacks agility and strength as a blocker.
The odds of the Titans keeping a fourth tight end on the roster are slim to none, and with the guys the team has ahead of him on the depth chart it's not likely he makes the team.
P Will Batson - The Titans like to bring in an extra punter or kicker every offseason to keep their starters fresh. This year Batson is that extra leg.
OT George Bias - According to Sports Illustrated:
Works to bend his knees, blocks with good lean and keeps his feet moving throughout the action. Explosive at the point, stays square and turns defenders from the action. Gets movement run blocking, jolts opponents with a punch of his hands and makes good use of body positioning. Lacks top footwork sliding out off the edge. Narrow-based blocker. Must improve his playing balance.
The Titans are set at tackle and already have quality backups at the position as well. He's a camp body.
LS Beau Brinkley - Long-time Titans long snapper Ken Amato was cut by the team this offseason and appears the team has found his replacement in Brinkley. He is the only long snapper currently on the roster, so all signs point to him making the final squad.
G Chandler Burden - According to Sports Illustrated:
Quickly sets up off the snap, keeps his feet moving and immediately gets his hands into opponents. Makes good use of angles, stays square and seals defenders from the action. Fluid moving on his feet and works blocks until the whistle blows. Easily controls defenders once engaged at the point of attack. Not a natural knee-bender and gets tall in his blocking. Lacks balance and struggles covering a large area.
The profile reads like a guy with the potential to develop. The Titans have added some veteran depth at guard recently in the form of Kyle DeVan, decreasing Burden's odds of making the roster. I expect him to be on the practice squad.
WR Chase Deadder - As we all know, the Titans are pretty set at wide receiver after the team drafted Kendall Wright in the first round. Deadder does offer some rare size for the position at 6'6. His size may warrant a practice squad spot, but nothing more.
WR LaQuinton Evans - According to Sports Illustrated:
Settles into the open spot of the defense, extends his hands to offer the quarterback a target and nicely adjusts to errant throws. Uses his frame to shield away defenders and protect the pass. Gives effort blocking. Lacks a burst and does not play to his timed speed. Struggles adjusting to the ball in stride. Rounds off routes.
Won't make the roster due to a crowded wide receiver corps.
DT DaJohn Harris - According to Sports Illustrated:
Explodes off the snap, displays strength in his lower body and pushes blockers off the line of scrimmage. Forceful, works his hands throughout the action and keeps his feet moving on contact. Displays solid first-step quickness, consistently doubled by opponents and plays with good pad level. Limited athlete with a marginal closing burst. Not effective rushing the passer or making many plays behind the line of scrimmage.
The Titans weren't the best at stopping the run last season. An impressive training camp could allow him to make the roster as a fifth defensive tackle.
FB Collin Mooney - Mooney spent the last three years fulfilling his term of service in the military, but before that he set Army's single-season rushing record. He is in a competition with Quinn Johnson for the Titans' lone fullback roster spot. At this point it looks like a 50/50 shot that he makes the roster.
DB Christian Scott - According to Sports Illustrated:
Scott presented himself as an NFL prospect after his junior season yet watched his progress slide last season. He possesses the size, speed and overall skill to get consideration in a zone system.
The Titans' lack of depth gives Scott a decent shot of making the roster.
QB Nick Stephens - Stephens finds himself in a battle with Rusty Smith for the Titans' third quarterback spot. Smith will likely win the battle because of his added knowledge of the team's system.
C William Vlachos - According to Sports Illustrated:
Works to stays square, keeps opponents in front of him and effectively uses his hands. Plays with consistent knee bend, keeps his head on a swivel and works well with linemates. Steers defenders from their angle of attack or turns them off the line. Explosive at the point. Effectively quarterbacks the offensive line. Gets minimal movement run blocking. Overwhelmed at the point of attack by opponents. Marginally athletic.
Vlachos will be given a chance to compete for the team's starting center position, but I don't see him winning it in his rookie year. He looks like a developmental talent he may receive a spot on the practice squad.
LB Alex Watkins - The Titans have a ton of both young and experienced talent at the position. Youth is served in the form of Colin McCarthy, Akeem Ayers, Zach Brown and Gerald McRath while Will Witherspoon, Zac Diles, Patrick Bailey and Tim Shaw. Watkins' chances of making the team are slim.
WR D.J. Woods - According to Sports Illustrated:
Quick slot receiver prospect who's displayed flashes of skill the past three years. Smooth releasing off the line, immediately gets to top speed and makes the reception in stride. Nicely redirects or adjusts to grab the errant pass. Extends and makes catches away from his frame. Has good quickness. Comes back to the ball out of breaks and works to make himself an available target. One-speed receiver who does not show burst on the field despite his 40 time. Does not display naturally soft hands and double catches passes.
Once again, the Titans' receiving corps is too loaded to find room for someone with Woods' limited abilities.
