State of the Tennessee Titans Roster: Cornerbacks

One of the topics we have talked about at length this offseason has been the lack of depth at the corner position.  Cortland Finnegan is one of the best corners in the league.  Nick Harper is a solid veteran opposite Finnegan, but there are some big concerns about his durability.  He will be 35 in September and missed significant time last season because of injury. 

Hopefully Finnegan and Harper stay healthy, but this is the NFL, so odds are one of them will miss some time next season.  Who steps in behind them is one of the biggest questions for the 2009 Titans.  Currently they have Cary Williams and DeMarcus Faggins listed as the back-up corners.  Either of those names excite anyone?  Yeah, me neither. 

The interesting thing to me is this has been the State of Corner since all of the reserves left in free agency, but the only thing the Titans did to help out was draft Ryan Mouton and Jason McCourty in the third and sixth rounds respectively.  One of those two guys is going to need to show something in camp to give me a good feeling about the position.
