You really have to like the direction the Titans receiver corps is heading right now, even with the loss of Kenny Britt to the St. Louis Rams.
Britt needed a change of scenery and could end up fulfilling his terrific potential with his new team. That doesn't mean it was ever going to work out with the Titans.
Kendall Wright is hands down this team's No.1 receiver, and he's entering a year when he could really burst onto the NFL scene. He caught some attention last season by posting more than 1,000 yards.
You would like to see his touchdown total go up, but that will come with more stability at quarterback.
Lining up opposite Wright will be another young receiver, Justin Hunter. Hunter had an impressive rookie season, and his yards-per-catch average really stands out at over 19 yards per catch.
These two guys will most likely line up on the outside, with veteran Nate Washington fitting into the equation as well. Washington is coming off a season where he came up just short of 1,000 yards receiving. Washington will bring a veteran influence and be the vocal leader of this young group.
The unit gets questionable after these three guys. The Titans lost Damian Williams in free agency. His departure hurts more than it may appear.
Who will be assume the role of that complementary number four receiver will be an interesting storyline as training camp approaches. It could be anyone from Marc Mariani to Michael Preston—possibly even one of the few undrafted free agents could emerge as the fourth member of this unit. You also can't forget about Dexter McCluster, who's expected to line up as a receiver from time to time.
As long as Wright and Hunter continue to progress, this unit will be a strong one.
