Three things: Titans at Seahawks

By Paul Kuharsky

Three things I’ll be looking for in Titans at Seahawks:

Vince Young and Michael Griffin: I consider the two veteran first-round picks from Texas to be the keys on each side of the ball. No, they won’t play much. But a show of poise and production from each could provide the very first kernels of confidence in them for 2010. Let’s see some rhythm from Young and no mistakes from Griffin.

The new ends: Thinned by injuries, the Titans just added Raheem Brock and Chris Harrington. They could get a lot of work chasing Seattle quarterbacks. Will they start to make a charge for roster spots, or are they going to turn out to be bodies the Titans can plug in for a time while they await the return of William Hayes and Derrick Morgan.

Young cornerbacks: Cortland Finnegan won’t play, which means expansive opportunities to put things down on film for all the candidates to start opposite him -- Jason McCourty, Ryan Mouton, Alterraun Verner and Tye Hill. Make some plays, create or expand your buzz. Verner, in particular, has been getting good practice reviews as of late.
