A breakdown of the Tennessee Titans' 2018 draft class and its progress after three weeks of training camp:
Rashaan Evans, ILB, Round 1: Evans was expected to compete for a starting spot and split first-team reps with veteran free-agent addition Will Compton. An undisclosed injury has caused Evans to miss the past two weeks of practice. Evans started to do upper-body conditioning by working with a weighted rope and medicine ball during practice before the Titans' first preseason game. He progressed to running light sprints and doing extensive ladder work before joint practices with Tampa Bay. The Titans are excited about his coverage ability in addition to how he can be a downhill tackler against the run.
Harold Landry, OLB, Round 2: Landry has been as advertised for the Titans. His ability to turn the corner with speed as he rushes the passer led to a strip-sack in the first preseason game. Coach Mike Vrabel praised Landry for drawing a holding call that negated a third-down conversion by the Buccaneers in the second preseason game. The Titans are using Landry on stunts with Derrick Morgan. The rookie pass-rusher could make an early impact.
Dane Cruikshank, CB, Round 5: Cruikshank was getting reps with the first-team defense at safety after starter Johnathan Cyprien went down with a torn ACL and key reserve Kendrick Lewis missed practice with a wrist injury. Veteran safety Kenny Vaccaro was signed to replace Cyprien, relegating Cruikshank to a backup role. Cruikshank solidified a special teams role before going down in the first preseason game. He injured his shoulder making a tackle on the kickoff team. Cruikshank hasn't practiced in more than a week, but returned to the field on Monday in a limited role, taking part in individual drills.
Luke Falk, QB, Round 6: Falk has struggled as the No. 3 quarterback. He is capable of making most of the underneath throws, but the deep throws have given him trouble. Rookie wideout Devin Ross had a step on the defense during a team period in practice before the first preseason game, but couldn't capitalize because Falk severely underthrew the pass. The same thing happened during the preseason game against the Buccaneers, but Ross was able to draw a pass interference call. Falk also failed to get the ball to Ross on a couple of deep passes during practice on Monday. At this point, it seems likely he ends up on the practice squad.
