The Tennessee Titans are currently third in the AFC South with a 3-4 record and are right in the thick of the playoff race. At this point, they are just one game behind the division leading Houston Texans, but the Titans still have a game to play against their division rivals. So the team essentially holds their own fate for the 2016 season.
That being said, it’s never too early to get some scouting in and preparation for the 2017 season. And General Manager Jon Robinson did just that this weekend.
According to ESPN’s Paul Kuharsky, Robinson told Titans Radio on Monday that he attended the Alabama vs. Texas A&M this past Saturday. Alabama, the No.1 ranked team in college football, beat the No.9 ranked Aggies by a score of 33-14 in the game.
Robinson and the Titans certainly weren’t the only NFL scouts to attend the battle of SEC powerhouses. According to NFL.com, scouts from the Atlanta Falcons, Baltimore Ravens, Carolina Panthers, Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, Los Angeles Rams, Miami Dolphins, Pittsburgh Steelers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers also attended the game.
Although both teams have a plethora of talent that will be playing on Sunday’s in the near future, there are a few players who teams were looking at more than others.
From the Crimson Tide, scouts were focusing on offensive tackle Cam Robinson, defensive end Jonathan Allen and linebacker Reuben Foster. From the Aggies, defensive end Myles Garrett, wide receiver Josh Reynolds and safety Justin Evans were likely the main focus.
