    With just a week of training camp in the books, I thought it would be interesting to predict the final 53-man roster. Here's my shot...

    QB: Young, Collins, Smith
    RB: CJ, Ringer, Blount
    FB: Hall
    TE: Scaife, Cook, Stevens
    WR: Britt, Washington, Gage, Hawkins, D. Williams, Edison, Mariani
    OL: Roos, Harris, Amano, Scott, Stewart, Kropog, Otto

    K: Bironas
    P: Kern
    LS: Amato

    DL: T. Brown, Haye, Jones, Hayes, Marks, Ford, Ball, Morgan, Babin
    LB: Tulloch, Witherspoon, McRath, Allred, Keglar, Thornton, Curran
    CB: Finnegan, Mouton, McCourty, Verner, Hill
    S: Fuller, Hope, Griffin, Nickey, R. Johnson

    Tough to get down to the last three for me. I kept Mariani because of his special teams abilities. Durand might be kept over Otto but he can spend another season on the practice squad. I don't know if the Titans would keep both Ball and Babin. It might depend on how good Morgan is when it comes to final cut day. If they have to keep both, someone like Rolle might end up on the practice squad unless he becomes a special teams beast. Smith as the #3 QB is based more on hope than reality. Simms is the better QB so far but I'm hoping Smith does enough to show he has upside.

    I think if Thornton is healthy he's in despite his salary. I don't see Fisher with as many options here with McRath out the first four games. I think Allred has looked better than Winborn so far but it's early.

    I could see Reinfeldt on the wire after the first cuts looking to upgrade depth at CB, especially if Hill if he doesn't get on the field and productive soon. Fisher likes those special team "specialists" who usually are S or LBs so I could see that happening as well.

    It's early. Lots can change. Injuries will impact this as well.

    Is D. Johnson supposed to be Damian Williams? I don't see how he doesn't make the roster.

    I kept R. Johnson over Rolle based only on what I've seen this week. Rolle might step things up big. He just seems weaker against the pass and the Titans seem to like safeties who can cover. But if Rolle shines on special teams, he could get one of those final spots. I hope he does.

    I don't know as much about how the Titans handle the last few roster spots as some of you guys, but is it a lock that the Titans keep 7 WRs? Could one of those spots be switched to safety in order to keep Rolle+R. Johnson around?

    Yes. The Titans have kept only six before. I think if D. Williams comes back and lights it up, and the Titans can find someone else adequate to back him up as a returner, then Mariani could end up on the practice squad and the Titans keep someone else who can help them on special teams. I don't know if Edison a special teams factor so could also find himself back on the practice squad if he doesn't show more consistency.

    It's early. Lots can and will likely change before September.

    There's only one spot open at WR and it's Hawk. This may be Nickey's last preseason as a Titan if Rolle steps it up.

    I don't see us keeping 7 WRs so I'm gonna peg Mariani as the odd man out.

    And I'd like to see Rolle make the team.

    "The BOOM" ain't going nowhere, he'll be the only Titan for life.
