This weekend was the first time that the 2015 Tennessee Titans have been on the field at the same time in highly competitive drills. The more looks we get at these players in these conditions, the better idea we will have of what they will bring when the season rolls around. It is time to start separating what we wanted these players to be, from what they actually are.
This is a look back on the defensive back play from this weekend.
Look, it was a very uneventful weekend from the defensive backs mainly because Marcus Mariota was so good at keeping the ball away from the defense. However, it is Blidi Wreh-Wilson that continues to get starting opportunities.
While I don't believe that he can play inside, I am surprised to see that the Titans continue to keep him on the field in the nickel. Why not just play the combination of Perrish Cox, Coty Sensabaugh and Jason McCourty and get done with it, that has to be the best combination right?
This is the only other player we have really heard about other than Blidi Wreh-Wilson and that is thanks to an ESPN piece by Paul Kuharsky.
In it, Sensabaugh says that he thinks the addition of Perrish Cox has taken a little bit of pressure off of him since he isn't under the spotlight. However the biggest thing we learned from him has nothing to do with the on the field work.
He gave insight about the new locker room design. He said that the new design made him feel closer to his teammates specifically Kendall Wright and Craig Stevens. He said that Stevens actually brought his son to the locker room at it was the first time he had met him despite being teammates for three years.
I don't know if that will help him cover receivers better, but it might help the team build better chemistry and maybe get better as a whole, it definitely can't hurt.
