The Tennessee Titans continue to do their draft homework, including on players within a close proximity of them.
The Titans worked out former University of Tennessee cornerback Cam Sutton on Tuesday, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation
Sutton could potentially fill a couple of needs for the Titans, who need help at cornerback and also could use a punt returner, though they signed veteran Eric Weems in the off-season, who can return both punts and kickoffs.
Sutton, 5-11, 186 pounds, had a solid career for the Volunteers, despite a senior season that was cut in half due to a broken ankle suffered against Ohio University in September and missed six weeks before returning to finish the season.
At Tennessee, Sutton gained a reputation as a ballhawk and an electrifying punt returner.
Sutton finished his career with the Volunteers as the all-time leader in passes defensed with 37. He also had three forced fumbles, three fumbles and seven career interceptions for the Vols.
In three seasons as a punt returner for the Volunteers, Sutton averaged 14.6 yards per return and had three returns for touchdowns. His best season as a returner came in 2015 as a junior, when he scored two touchdowns and averaged 18.7 yards per punt return.
According to Pro Football Talk, Sutton has also had workouts with the New Orleans Saints and New England Patriots.
Most draft analysts have Sutton pegged as a third or fourth-round pick, who possibly could end up as a return man and a nickelback at the NFL level.
Tennessee’s pro day was last Friday in Knoxville.
