Titans training camp battle: What ultimately happens at cornerback?

Predicting how the cornerback battle at Titans training camp ends up.

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports
There are a few training camp battles that are going on, but the one that everybody is talking about is at corner. We have talked a lot about the who and why, so now it is time for my prediction. I think that Tommie Campbell ends up winning the starting spot opposite Jason McCourty with Alterraun Verner playing nickel.

The one interesting thing about camp yesterday was that ATV never worked in the nickel. I think that is because they already know what he can do there, and they want to see what the other guys have to offer.

The wildcard here is the work that Verner has done at safety. The Titans have two solid strong safeties in Bernard Pollard and George Wilson, but they don't have anyone behind Michael Griffin at free safety, and Griffin is by no means a sure thing. Could they move Verner to free safety if Griffin struggles? I am not sure they are willing to go there yet, but I wouldn't be shocked.

So what do you think ultimately happens with the corners?
