Tennessee Titans cornerback Roger McCreary has been one of the bigger standouts of training camp thus far, and he cemented that notion during Tennessee’s first padded practice on Monday.
With fellow corner Elijah Molden still sidelined due to injury, McCreary is making the most of his opportunity to shine.
After practice, McCreary reacted to what was another good day for him.
“I wouldn’t say everything is really falling into place, it’s just a little routine everyday,” McCreary said. “I just try to follow a routine and try to get used to everything, playing different positions and everything. But it’s been going great and I’m just trying to get better everyday. That’s my main focus.”
Second-round pick Roger McCreary was dominant today. Very strong in redzone 7v7 period. Had back-to-back PBUs, then later broke up a would-be TD pass to Nick Westbrook-Ikhine in the corner of the end zone. In last team period, had another big PBU.

McCreary has been seeing a lot of action against fellow 2022 draft pick, wide receiver Treylon Burks, something he believes will help his development.
“I’m trying to get him better, he’s going to try and get me better,” McCreary said. “If he makes a good play, I’m going to say to him ‘good job.’ If I make a good play, we talk back and forth.”
Roger McCreary had at least 5 PBUs today. He pointed to staying consistent as a big reason why things are going well for him. Also said he relishes opportunities to go vs. Treylon Burks in 1 on 1s. pic.twitter.com/IL4VoCXJAr

McCreary was slated to serve as a backup in his first season, and while that will still likely be the case depending on the health of the secondary, he’s showing he might be ready for a more significant role right away.
