According to Easton Freeze of Broadway Sports Media and Turron Davenport of ESPN, rookie QB Malik Willis is set to be the Tennessee Titans' starter for Week 1 of the preseason. (Easton Freeze on Twitter)
Willis was a surprise draft faller after getting a lot of first-round buzz, but he ended up dropping to Tennessee in the third round. A product of Auburn and Liberty, his final collegiate season saw Willis amass 3,748 total yards and 40 total touchdowns. Willis could look really raw tonight, but how he performs in the preseason could be a big gauge for the Titans on how they approach their future at QB.
