It's still a heated battle to see who will be the No. 4 and No. 5 receivers on the depth chart in Week 1. Michael Preston will most likely be one of those winners, but who will become that important complementary fifth receiver?
The Titans already have three strong receivers in Kendall Wright, Nate Washington and Justin Hunter. With that said, those three aren't enough to have a balanced passing offense for Jake Locker.
Marc Mariani hasn't looked very sharp so far in preseason but is staying positive, according to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean:
He has to show coaches more in these final three preseason games to earn himself a roster spot over veterans Brian Robiskie and Derek Hagan. If the Titans didn't have other options in the return game, then I would like his chances much more. However, he has to earn his spot as a wide receiver.
On the other hand, Robiskie made a big catch on the game-winning drive from Zach Mettenberger to really help his chances. It's been a productive week for Robiskie's chances at making the roster, per David Boclair of the Nashville Post.
If this trend continues, then Mariani will have a tough time making this roster. It would be a tough cut to make but a necessary one.
