Ryan Mouton named one of the 3 rookies that have a chance to make the quickest impact for the Titans

Tenn = The Tennessean

Tenn Note: “Kenny Britt. Ryan Mouton. Gerald McRath. For various reasons, those three rookies appear to have the opportunity to make the quickest impact for the Titans this season.”

Tenn Note: “Mouton’s locker at Baptist Sports Park is next to fifth-year pro Vincent Fuller, who is teaching him the intricacies of the nickelback position — for example, how to check down and read quarterbacks and how to play against certain offensive schemes.”

About how much more knowledge of the game he has now, Ryan Mouton said:
“A lot of times, a lot of things that you learn on this level, if you would have had that (knowledge) in college, you would have been able to make a couple more plays.” (Tenn)

About drafting Mouton in the 3rd round, DB coach Marcus Robertson said:
“We felt like he was a guy who could possibly come in here and give us some depth in the secondary, as well as help us immediately on special teams. He’s a very explosive guy, very physical tackler and he’s got a little bit of knowledge of the game.” (Tenn)

Tenn Note: “Mouton’s top impact, barring an injury to Fuller or starting cornerbacks Cortland Finnegan and Nick Harper, likely will be as a gunner on special teams, taking the pressure off safety Michael Griffin. Mouton will also compete for the kickoff and punt return jobs.”
