Updated Wide Receiver Depth Chart for Titans Ahead of Training Camp
By Larry Rupp
With the NFL Draft and height of free agency in the rear view mirror, it is time to start looking ahead to training camps kicking off and then the start of the 2021 season. A lot of prolific wide receivers were drafted, but the Tennessee Titans waited until the fourth round until they selected one.
The Titans enter the 2021 season looking to win the AFC South division for the third time in the last five seasons. It may come down to whether or not they have depth needed at WR to give their starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill enough offensive weapons to work with.
Here's a look at the Titans' updated WR depth chart for 2021.
Titans WR Depth Chart 2021
1. A.J. Brown
A.J. Brown has quickly become one of the most dynamic young wide receivers in today's game since he was drafted in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft. He balled out in 2020 racking up 1,075 receiving yards on 70 receptions and scoring 11 touchdowns. He could see over 100 targets again next season as the top option in the passing attack.
2. Josh Reynolds
The Titans added Josh Reynolds at the WR position this offseason. signing him to a one-year deal worth $1.75 million. He slides in as the No. 2 option in the passing game right now after setting a couple career-high marks in 2020. Reynolds hauled in 52 passes for 618 yards and 2 touchdowns last year. It's possible he takes on the role left behind by now New York Jet Corey Davis.
3. Dez Fitzpatrick
Dez Fitzpatrick was the Titans' fourth-round pick in this year's NFL Draft taken with the No. 109 overall pick. He did nothing but produce while at Louisville and totaled 2,589 yards on 154 receptions across four college seasons (45 games played). He also scored 21 touchdowns during that span and enters training camp fighting for a starting role on offense.
4. Nick Westbrook-Ikhine
5. Cameron Batson
6. Chester Rogers
7. Racey McMath
The Titans selected one other WR in the draft this year and that was LSU's Racey McMath in the sixth round. McMath spent three seasons with the Tigers and posted 522 yards on 33 receptions across 18 games played. He has a lot of upside given his combination of size and speed, but will have to have a strong showing in training camp is he wants to lock down a roster spot.
