Tennessee Titans wide receiver Justin Hunter continues to struggle in training camp. Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean noted that during the Titans' Saturday scrimmage, the rookie wideout had two more drops, including "one that bounced off his chest."
The Titans traded up six spots to draft Hunter in the second round, but his first camp has been a nightmare. He missed most of OTAs with a hamstring injury while wide receiver coach Shawn Jefferson questioned his toughness. When he got into camp, teammate Bernard Pollard joined Jefferson in verbally ripping Hunter, pushing him to improve his mental game.
Hunter was one of the most physically gifted receivers in the 2013 NFL Draft, but his questionable hands are one of the biggest reasons he fell to the second round. It's not a good sign that he's still struggling to hold onto the ball in low-contact scrimmages. Hunter will have to show some real improvement in the preseason if he hopes to be a factor in his rookie year.
