What happens with the second cornerback spot?

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Alterraun Verner is gone, and after a great year, it is time to look at who will take over that position. There are several choices, but ultimately it will come down to one of three names.

Currently, the Tennessee Titans have seven potential cornerbacks on the roster, but three of them can essentially be removed from the #2 CB conversation.

-Jason McCourty is obviously the #1 CB and has been very good in the last two years.

-Micah Pellerin/George Baker are essentially a special teams player, and has no really claim to the position.

-Khalil Wooten is a decent special teamer (better than Pellerin) but has no NFL experience.

That leaves Coty Sensabaugh, Tommie Campbell, and Blidi Wreh-Wilson.

Coty Sensabaugh has been one of the best third-corners in the league, and should probably be considered the player with the highest chance to succeed Verner.

Wreh-Wilson has tons of potential and even was considered a fringe first round player in last year's draft. He is big and fast and his potential could put him in ahead of Sensabaugh.

Finally, Campbell has outstanding speed and is absolutely huge, however for all his years in development he has never been able to take that next step. It should be noted that while he didn't start, he did just barely get edged out by Verner, who went on to have a Pro Bowl year. Maybe he is better than most of us think?

In either case, I think it is clear that the new Titans front office doesn't consider it a major concern, but if the right value were to fall on draft day it could make a lot of sense to bring another player in.
