There are a lot of you that have picked today to go to the Tennessee Titans training camp and rightfully so. It is a Saturday, the weather was nice yesterday, everyone is off work, and most importantly Marcus Mariota will be signing autographs and interacting with fans.
Here are a few quick things you might want to look for live:
Brian Orakpo vs Taylor Lewan.
Right now everyone has fresh legs and is ready to go. That makes the battle between Orakpo and Lewan even more exciting because we won't get to see the two this fresh all year. Lewan is on the record saying that Orakpo has been good enough that it forces him to get better every day or sit on the bench (and he says he prefers to get better).
You can listen to all of Lewan comments here below:

Who is Marcus Mariota's favorite?
Yesterday onlookers said that the surprise of the day was how much work Hakeem Nicks was working with the first team. It will be interesting to see who works there today, but the thing you get from actually being at the game is that instead of reps you can see who Mariota is targeting most and talking to after the play.
Kendall Wright and Delanie Walker seem like an odds on favorites to be the guy considering their track record, but it sounds like Nicks might have a chemistry with Mariota.
Right tackle and cornerback battle.
Who plays the most at these positions is important, but being their live on a snap-by-snap basis you can see if Bell is better in pass protection than Poutasi first hand instead of reading it online. It gives you your first look at how disruptive Perrish Cox can be and given his offseason hype there is a good chance that he makes a play if he gets the most snaps today.
