The Titans secondary is a blue-collared feisty unit that might not always shut down the passing game but is as opportunistic as they come, creating big plays or turnovers when they need to. Safeties Kenny Vacarro and Kevin Byard have been playing outstanding. The corner backs were on par too, until the injury bug struck. Corner back Malcolm Butler went down early for the majority of the season. Adoree Jackson had a stretch where he wasn’t on the field. Those games that Logan Ryan was stuck on an island with those number one receivers exposed Ryan for what he is, a versatile slot guy. Ryan is an unrestricted free agent regardless, and the Titans need some help at corner.

Troy Pride (Notre Dame Corner Back)

Pride may be at his best when working out of the slot, but could do some boundary work as well. He did some great work at the Senior Bowl, and looked comfortable in coverage. His measurables are right up there with some of the best in this class (4.4-40 yard dash, 119″ broad jump), and he could stick with some of the faster receivers at the next level. The biggest issue with Pride as a boundary guy is his 30 5/8″ arms, but he has the athleticism to  make up ground when needed.

 

Reggie Robinson II (Tulsa Corner Back)

If prototype size and athleticism appeals to you at the corner back position, look no further than Robinson. He’s long and athletic, he’ll appeal to teams that like bump and run. Robinson measured 6’1″ and 205 pounds with a quick 4.4 40 yard dash and 22 reps of 225 pounds. He is built for boundary work, and is able and willing to step up in run support.

Javaris Davis (Auburn Corner Back)

NFL bloodlines? Check. Ridiculous speed? Check. Above average route recognition? Check. The cousin of Vernon and Vontae Davis is slightly undersized (5’8″) but makes up for it with his ridiculous athletic profile. He can play slot or boundary, but his best fit is probably the Logan Ryan role for the MMCNB.

Amik Robertson (LA Tech Corner Back)

An undersized corner from the C-USA might not sound appealing, but consider his ballhawking ability that lead to 14 career interceptions, it looks better. Then pair that with the fact that Jon Robinson loves to dip into this conference in the third round, Robertson could very well end up on this Titans roster.
