    SUMMARY: 12 days into training camp, CB Eric King has been as impressive as anyone in the secondary. But he faces an uphill battle to make the final roster with Nick Harper, Reynaldo Hill, Michael Griffin, Cortland Finnegan and Kelly Herndon all likely locks. King will have to beat out sixth-round rookie Ryan Smith as well as veterans Andre Woolfolk and Michael Waddell along with standing out enough on special teams so the Titans add another roster spot at CB. "It's definitely a challenge but I accept the challenge," King said. "I'm used to being an underdog. I'm used to being the guy that's kind of on the outside looking in. But I always find a way to wiggle myself up in there." With Finnegan moved to the outside with the first team this week, King became the #1 nickel and will hope to leave a positive impression on his way to making the final roster.

    If things go on as they have so far, King will be the sixth CB which means one less spot elsewhere. I look forward to watching him Saturday night.

    I'm pulling for him. When my son was born last year he came to the hospital and visted along with Reynaldo and Woolfolk. He was a very nice guy

    If Finnegan was moved to the First team, did Reynaldo get dropped to 2nd?

    Just another reason to move Griff back to safety.

    Looks like we've seen the last of woolfolk and waddel, and hopefully thompson.

    Maybe the last of jones too since he's now a rastler! :biglaugh:

    you can never have enough good corners, especially the way ours seems to get hurt all the time.

    Wasn't King a higher (2nd maybe) round draft pick just a couple years ago of Buffalo
