Tennessee Titans Agree To Terms With 14 Undrafted Free Agents 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.
