special teams on the upswing

I watched the Titans game at the DOME and on the replay. What struck me was that we should have some real good special team additions from our rookie pool .Sunseri stood out to me as a player that should shine as a special team player .Who else do you guys think are going to contribute?

Re: special teams on the upswing

What if I told you this draft was primarily aimed at improving special teams?

I think that several of the players picked in late rds were picked for their athletic potential upside and ability to contribute to special teams

Marcus Ball. Solid on kick off coverage and also open field tackling.

I would ask you how you know that.

I am seeing some good hitting on special teams but in the return department we still suck balls. Sincerie is my new fav though. He is friggin everywhere and his motor is always running full speed.

Roman Humbar is great on special teams.

I wonder if any of the 2nd tier receivers have a leg up in special teams that might be tie breaker. I've read both Meachem and Morgan very good downfield blockers.
