*Fred Davis did not participate in the running or jumping because of an injury.

Today is a big day of workouts for the Titans because it features quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers.  The Titans will be keeping a really close eye on the wide receiver 40 times.  They need a burner to stretch the field.  I will be very interested to see what Earl Bennett does in the 40.  He is probably not the right fit for the Titans, but I think he will be a very good NFL receiver.  His 40 time will make the difference between and early 2nd round pick or a 3rd round pick.

The Titans will also be keeping an eye on the running back times as they search for someone to compliment LenDale White.  I don't see the Titans taking a running back on the 1st day, but I wouldn't be surprised at all to see them come out of this draft with a back.

As always, leave any interesting or notworthy things in the comments.
