On Monday night, the Titans released their first unofficial depth chart of the season. This is obviously not the exact depth chart that will run out on September 10 against the Raiders, but it is a good opportunity to see who is playing well in camp and who needs to step it up.
- Despite tweaking a hamstring, Corey Davis is listed as the starter opposite of Rishard Matthews. (I expect Decker to start on Saturday vs. the Jets and everyone else move up.)
- There has been a lot of buzz around Jonathan Krause and Tre McBride during camp as they have both been playing well. McBride surprisingly is listed ahead of Taywan Taylor, but I do not expect that to last.
- Eric Weems was brought here mainly to return kicks, but with the depth at wide receiver, he may not even make the team. He is listed as the starter at both the kick and punt returns, but I don’t expect that to last. Weems may return kickoffs, but with the talent that Adoree’ Jackson has, he will be the punt returner.
- In the secondary, LeShaun Sims and Logan Ryan are listed as the starting corners. Adoree’ Jackson and Brice McCain are listed behind them and it will be interesting to see if Adoree’ can earn the spot over Sims.
- Only one tight end is listed unlike last season’s where two tight ends were starting. Jalston Fowler is in the starting lineup, which tells me, despite all the weapons, that run-first is still the mentality. Phillip Supernaw and Jonnu Smith are listed behind Delanie Walker, but I assume we will see a lot more of Smith this season.
- Mekale McKay is a guy who fans should watch during the preseason. He’s been making catch after catch in camp.
