Eloy Atkinson, C UTEP

6′ 3″ and 315

3 year player on the offensive line. Smart guy who earned academic honors at UTEP. Was on the 2012 Rimington Trophy Watch List for the nation’s best center. Possible practice squad developmental player who could possibly make the squad in 2014 as a backup if Spencer and Velasco don’t get an extension.

George Baker, CB South Florida

5′ 11″ and 180

4 year player for USF at cornerback. Good production. Would need to outperform draft picks and those on the roster for a spot.

Stefan Charles, DL Regina (ummmm where?)

6′ 5″ and 310

Turns out Regina is in Canada and Charles is one of 2 Canadiens being given a shot by the Titans. Projects more to DE and fits the mold of the bigger DE’s the Titans want. Also being looked at for the CFL draft.

** Jack Doyle, TE WKU

6′ 5″ and 254

4 year player at WKU and started games at TE as a true rookie. 3 time captain for the Hilltoppers and was a good player earning first team All Sun Belt award. Also lettered in rugby in high school. Nice blend of blocking and receiving ability but not terribly fast. Could compete with Taylor Thompson for the 3 spot or make the squad as a 4th TE (the Titans have carried 4 before).

Travis Harvey, WR Florida A & M

**Stefphon Jefferson, RB Nevada

5′ 10″ and 213

4 year letterman in football earning first team all league honors. Very productive junior year. Was considered a late round draft selection. Could compete with Jamie Harper for the 3rd RB spot.

Oscar Johnson, OT LA Tech

6′ 5″ and 331 (10 1/4 inch hands!)

This dude is a load and has played both guard and tackle. Was thought to be a late round draft pick. Long shot to make the roster but could due to lack of depth. Very good practice squad candidate as a developmental player.

**Nigel Nicholas, Dl Oklahoma State

6′ 3″ and 253

Fits the Titans move toward heavier and stouter defensive lineman. Earned honorable mention all Big 12 honors in 2012. Has played both DT and DE and was highly productive in college. Could compete with Karl Klug for a rotational spot. Good candidate for the practice squad if he doesn’t make the 53.

**Matt Pierce, CB Valdosta State

5′ 10″ and 196

4 year player for Valdosta State and highly productive. Excels as a  returner and could compete with late round selection Khalid Wooten and Daimion Stafford for a roster spot. Also has a blocked field goal on his resume. Quick elusive player.

Rashad Ross, WR Arizona State

5′ 11″ and 179

This guy is fast posting a 4.34 40 at his pro day and also is a very good returner. Unfortunately, his catching skills are average but if he can fix that issue he could be a threat. Still, sheer numbers make it unlikely he will make the team.

Matt Sewell, OT McMaster (ummmm where?) 

6′ 7″ and 337

Turns out McMaster is in Canada and Sewell is one of 2 Canadiens to be given a shot in the NFL this year by the Titans, joining Regina Rams player Stefan Charles. Sewell also has a shot to be drafted in the CFL so his situation bears watching.

Dontel Watkins, WR Murray State

6′ 2″ and 195

Another guy who seems unlikely to make the squad because of numbers.

Jonathan “Tig” Willard, LB Clemson

6′ 2″ and 205

Good tackler who does not have great speed. Could possibly make the back end on ST but more likely a practice squad candidate.

Tom Wort, ILB Oklahoma

6′ 0″ and 235

Good college player who will need to prove himself on ST to make it in the league. Like Williard, will need to excel there to earn a spot but is likely a practice squad candidate.
