The end of the NFL Draft leaves a bit of a void and downtime every year, and this one is no different. All the speculation and mock drafts that kept peoples attention leading up to the draft are now moot and new information on the ten players the Tennessee Titans selected is limited as those players are still scattered about getting their affairs in order and preparing for their move to Nashville.
The media will get our first look at those ten draft picks, and their eleven undrafted rookie teammates on Friday when the team will begin their rookie mini-camp and there will be access to those players.
The rookies will go through this team mini-camp before taking part in the NFL rookie symposiums where they will learn about life in the NFL before they join their veteran teammates for OTA (Organized Team Activity) on May 24th where we in the media will have the chance to see those rookies and the veterans on the same field at the same time.
There will be five opportunities to view the entire team together between May 24th and June 9th during those OTA's before the official mini-camp begins on June 14-16 at St. Thomas Sports Park.
There has been a lot made already of the Titans selection of Henry after trading for, and naming Murray their starting back. I imagine that Henry will hear this topic ad nauseam during that mini-camp.
Of course there will be other players who will deliver intriguing and news worthy stories, but none will bring views more so than the running back situation.
Kalan Reed, the Titans final draft pick, and the last of the draft will bring his title of Mr. Irrelevant to town and there will be many questions for the young corner.
Top pick Jack Conklin will also provide many stories in the coming min-camp, but his biggest impact will likely come when he is on the field with the veterans and we see how he fills his spot along the first team offensive line.
There will be interesting tidbits from the remaining rookie draft picks and the eleven undrafted additions also, and that will fill a lot of news time in the coming months as we count down toward the start of another NFL season,
It's not much in terms of answers the the biggest questions surrounding this team, but it's all we will have until we kickoff the regular season and see what the product actually looks like on the field.
Until them, enjoy getting to know the rookies, there will be some fun stuff from them I'm sure.
