Tennessee Titans Agree To Terms With 14 Undrafted Free Agents

New, comments has the first batch of undrafted free agents to sign with the Titans, and there are 14 in all:

LB Jonathan Cornell - Mississippi
P Chad Cunningham - Tennessee
TE Cameron Graham - Louisville
G Thomas Gray - Samford
FB Patrick Hill - Miami
WR Joseph Hills - Tennessee State
DE Julian Hartsell - Catawba
G Anquez Jackson - Alabama A&M
WR James Kirkendoll - Texas
CB Lequan Lewis - Arizona State
WR Orentha Murdock - Fort Hays State
WR Michael Preston - Heidelberg College
WR Owen Spencer - NC State
LS John Stokes - Vanderbilt

Thoughts on a few of these guys below...

The two names that jump out to me right away are Joseph Hills and John Stokes. Hill is a 6'4" WR from TSU here in Nashville. Hill started out at South Carolina but finished his career with TSU. He's a big, tall WR who can play very physically, which he uses to make up for his lack of speed and explosion. Hills is still a long shot to make the roster, but he could make a solid practice squad guy.


John Stokes was a heralded recruit when he arrived at Vanderblit after passing on offers from Michigan, among others. He never really established himself as a force in the LB corps, but he was a solid contributor who drew immediate praise as a long snapper and special teams contributor. The Vandy bias aside, I always love to see worthy guys with local connections get a shot.

I've also heard good things about the vertical speed of Owen Spencer and James Kirkendoll

So all in all there aren't any of the top-rated guys who have peppered numerous lists over the past few months, but my bet is that as we dive in and learn a little more about these guys we'll see a few who have the potential to challenge for a roster spot. Lets not forget that 57 UDFAs started last season on the active side of an NFL roster.
