TRAINING CAMP PREVIEW: CORNERBACKS**
In camp: Logan Ryan, Adoree' Jackson, LeShaun Sims, Brice McCain, Kalan Reed, DeMontre Hurst, D'Joun Smith, Tye Smith, Manny Abad, Jeremy Boykins.
Offseason developments:** The Titans signed Ryan, who won two Super Bowl rings with the Patriots, in free agency. Then the team drafted Jackson in the first round out of USC. The Titans also added Hurst, previously with the Bears. The team said goodbye to veteran Jason McCourty, who signed with the Browns. Valentino Blake wasn't re-signed, and he joined the Giants. The new additions should create some interesting battles in training camp.
In the spotlight: Jackson. Ryan arrived with plenty of moxie. He's a proven veteran with valuable experience. Jackson, meanwhile, is a phenomenal athlete who could impact the team in a number of areas – on defense, special teams, and at some point, possibly on offense. Jackson looked good during the offseason work. Now he'll try and start fast and earn his way onto the field in his first training camp. He should be fun to watch.
Battle to watch: McCain vs. others: Right now I'm thinking McCain is No.4 on the depth chart at cornerback, behind Ryan, Jackson and Sims. But that's just me. His best chance of making the team - and playing - is by winning the job in the slot, where he's held up well during his career. Others will be worked inside during camp, however, including some mentioned earlier in this same category. Hurst also figures to be in the mix. Can McCain perform well enough to win the job?
Keep an eye on: Sims. A fifth-round pick out of Southern Utah a year ago, Sims got a chance to play at the end of last season, and he performed well. He's tall and lanky, and he's built to compete against physical receivers. So what happens if Sims wins an outside spot? Well, that would make things even more interesting in the slot. Someone else could be bumped inside to chalenge McCain. Ryan has also performed well in the past, but others will also be in the mix.
Next up: Safeties.
