Tennessee Titans: Depth Chart For Redskins

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

The Tennessee Titans have released their depth chart for their first preseason game.

Here's a look at the unofficial depth chart for the Titans first preseason game as tweeted by Jim Wyatt:

It's only the first preseason game, but there are a handful of observations to be had.

Middle Linebacker

Colin McCarthy is actually listed as the starting middle linebacker over Moise Fokou. McCarthy has been slow to return after his off season surgery and has recently been out with a hamstring injury to boot. Fokou has had the majority of first team reps in practices as well. I was actually surprised to see this, especially since McCarthy is unlikely to even play.

Defensive Line

The defensive line starters for a 4-3 look exactly as they should with Morgan, Hill, Casey, and Wimbley. The mammoth Hill was not brought in as a backup as some have suggested, and Wimbley is still the incumbent at left end. This unit will definitely work as a rotation more this year than last, but those are still your "starters". Ropati Pitoitua may actually see the field first however as a run down defensive end opposite Morgan. It will be an interesting rotation to watch.

Wide Receiver

Nate Washington is listed as starting opposite Britt. I love Nate Washington and believe he is invaluable to this team. That said, if Kendall Wright does in games what he's been doing in practice, he'll end up the #2 receiver regardless of formation at some point this season.

Justin Hunter is also listed as 3rd team behind Damian Williams and Michael Preston.

Center

Fernando Velasco is getting the first shot at keeping his job, while Rob Turner is listed as a backup guard at this point. It will be interesting to see if Turner get's a go with the first team in the second preseason game.

Cornerback

Finally, the most heated and talked about position battle. Much like Velasco, Alterraun Verner is getting the first opportunity to retain his job. He'll be starting opposite McCourty in the Redskins game. While Campbell will rotate in with the second team, the coaches have already said that Campbell will run with the first team in the second preseason game. The outside corner position is one to watch for sure, as I feel Coty Sensabaugh owns the nickel.

Tomorrow night is the first step in what is hopefully a difficult evaluation process for the coaches. Look for one of these players to try and stand out and make the coaches decision for them.
