Everybody knows one of the keys to being a good running back is vision.
The Titans Antonio Andrews can relate. He’s coming into the NFL with eyes wide open.
“When you don’t get drafted, people don’t expect you to make it in the NFL,” he said. “I understand that. But I feel like I’m going to make it. I really do.”
In less than three weeks, Andrews will enter the Titans’ training camp as an endangered species — an undrafted rookie free agent. The odds are stacked against him. And he knows it.
Andrews raised a few eyebrows during mini-camp sessions. Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt has made it clear he likes players with versatility. Andrews fits the mold. He did a little bit of everything at Western Kentucky — and he did everything well.
Even if Andrews makes the team, he'll have some hurdles to clear before being fantasy relevant. Of course there is rookie Bishop Sankey who looks to be the starter and vet Shonn Greene could be the backup, although the story said he's not guaranteed a roster spot. Jackie Battle has been working as a fullback which should help his chances of staying on the roster and Dexter McCluster will see time all over the field.
