5 Bold Predictions For Tennessee Titans Training Camp

With training camps getting underway across the NFL, the Tennessee Titans will be amongst the teams with the most work to be done. They have new coaches across the board and a fleet of new talent, so adjusting to the new systems will be crucial. Here are five bold predictions for the Titans as they head into 2014.

Jake Locker has to come right into training camp with something to prove. He has a lot of doubters this year, but it's up to him to shut them down. I see him coming into the summer in great physical and mental shape, ready to get the ball rolling. Locker has shown he can be a leader and a successful quarterback. Locker is in it for the long haul this year and I think he'll start every game for the Titans this season.

They got really close last year, but the Titans will finally get two 1,000-yard receivers in 2014. Kendall Wright topped the mark last year, but Nate Washington fell just short at 919 yards. This rides off the fact Jake Locker will stay healthy, as the Titans were without his services for the majority of last year. Wright and Washington should be in for stronger seasons with the return of their starting QB.

3. Ken Whisenhunt Will Revamp Franchise

Ken Whisenhunt is stepping into a situation he can mold exactly how he'd like. The Tennessee Titans have not been to the playoffs since 2008, and something needs drastic change. He'll turn around the mediocre offense into an exciting force while also giving the defense a complete face-lift. He is going to light a fire under these young players and we'll see the rewards of that hard work right away.

2. Justin Hunter Will Break Out in 2014

There's a lot of buzz surrounding Justin Hunter and his potential in the NFL. He has incredible instincts and the size to be an elite receiver. Hunter had a mediocre rookie season, with 354 yards on 18 receptions, but he was able to snag four touchdowns. His leaping ability make him deadly in the red zone, something that could easily make him one of Jake Locker's favorite targets.

The Titans took a flier on Taylor Lewan at the 14th spot in the NFL Draft, hoping he might be the next star lineman. That could turn into fruition rather quickly, as he is NFL-ready and will be battling in training camp for a starting spot on the line. He has the drive and ability to be a top lineman right away for Tennessee and his impact will be substantial in his rookie campaign. Lewan will be a Pro Bowler within his first few seasons.
