Titans host Wake Forest CB Caelen Carson on top-30 visit

The Tennessee Titans have hosted yet another 2024 NFL draft prospect on a top-30 visit ahead of this month’s event.

According to his Instagram, and as confirmed by ESPN’s Turron Davenport, the Titans brought in Wake Forest cornerback Caelen Carson recently.

Carson’s game is most suitable for press-man and Cover 2 looks, although he’s capable of handling most coverages. He doesn’t have as many snaps under his belt as some prospects, so his instincts and break anticipation aren’t fully focused yet. He’s much better from press than off-man coverage and does a nice job of utilizing his physicality to rough up the release and contest catches when he’s in position. He works through route combinations from zone and will come downhill and strike with good purpose most of the time. Carson’s angles to the throw and as a tackler can be spotty, leading to missed opportunities. Overall, the physical traits are ahead of the positional skills, but there is enough in place to project him as an eventual CB3.

The 6-foot, 199-pound corner has the capability to play inside or out, which is exactly the kind of versatility defensive coordinator Dennard Wilson is looking for.

But seeing as how the Titans have made big additions to their secondary thus far, it’s hard to imagine a scenario in which they take Carson on Day 2, even if it’s via a trade up from the fourth round into the third to snag him.
