Of all the under-the-radar wide receivers on the roster, Reggie Roberson Jr. is the one that intrigues me the most personally.

If Roberson can stay healthy, the former Mustang offers the kind of blistering speed that can overpower a defense at any moment that the Titans offense desperately craves for.

The SMU product also adds value to short passing and short return games. Before a few unfortunate injury mishaps, Roberson had 301 punt return yards and one touchdown on nine return attempts (33.4 YPR) in college.

In total, Roberson caught 168 passes for 2,704 yards (16.1 ypc) and 23 touchdowns during his time at SMU.

Roberson’s best chance of earning a spot on the roster may come in the rematch, an area he saw reps in during training camp. He was also listed as a backup returner on Tennessee’s first unofficial depth chart.

Multiple reports indicated that Roberson performed well throughout camp. If he’s able to combine these best practices with a solid pre-season performance, the former SMU star could be set to at least have a spot on the practice squad.

Honorable mentions: RB Julius Chestnut, DL Da’Shawn Hand, DL Sam Okuayinonu, WR Mason Kinsey, TE Tommy Hudson
