With the Titans expected to deploy more of a blitz-heavy defensive scheme this season, cornerbacks who can play well in press coverage will be more of a priority.

Coach Mike Munchak said as much on Tuesday when he and general manager Ruston Webster looked ahead to the NFL Draft, which begins Thursday.

“We’ll definitely look at a corner — if there’s one we like at the time we’re picking — that has those kinds of abilities, that can get up more in your face and play a little more man-to-man,” Munchak said.

At least two of the draft’s top cornerbacks — Alabama’s Dee Milliner and Florida State’s Xavier Rhodes — are considered to be strong press corners. But Webster said he believes there are several cornerbacks in the draft who excel in press coverage.

“There are … some big corners that are talented players,” Webster said. “Those are typically the best press guys. There are also some guys that will be really good nickel players. So I really think it’s a pretty good year. There are a lot of corners we like. But as far as press guys go, yeah, there are a good number of those players.”

Milliner reportedly has undergone five surgeries already in his career, and he’s currently rehabilitating from shoulder surgery. But he missed only one game in three seasons at Alabama.

“We look at all (player injuries) and try to … just formulate an opinion about what our doctors say and what they think, how they feel it’s going to work out,” Webster said. “So we’ve worked through all that, but probably don’t want to comment.”

In addition to Milliner and Rhodes, the Titans visited with cornerbacks including Houston’s D.J. Hayden, Mississippi State’s Johnthan Banks, Georgia’s Sanders Commings and Nevada’s Khalid Wooten.

“There’s pretty much any corner there you’d want, whether it’s a guy to play press, man or zone,” Webster said.
