Colts WRs, Titans CBs make Clayton list

John Clayton points to two AFC South camp battles in his top five for the conference.

He’s looking at Anthony Gonzalez injecting himself back into the Colts’ receiving corps a year after an early injury opened the door for rookie Austin Collie.

And he’s listed the Titans’ four-way battle for the starting cornerback spot opposite Cortland Finnegan.

I don’t think there is an easy answer in Indy. The slot receivers will slug it out, and Gonzalez won’t only get snaps inside. But if the Colts remain four deep, I envision them all playing, not a scenario where the “loser” hardly gets on the field when everyone else is healthy.

In Tennessee, Jason McCourty got a disproportionate number of days running with the ones in OTAs -- as in almost all of them. Jeff Fisher has a way of talking about a competition while predetermining the favorite, and it may already require a combination of a bad camp from McCourty and an outstanding one from Ryan Mouton, Alterraun Verner or Tye Hill to alter things.
