Former Titans WR coach Fred Graves told PFW that continued maturation from young WR Kenny Britt will be key as he enters his third NFL season. "He doesn't have to put pressure on himself," said Graves, now the Panthers' WR coach, at Georgia's pro day. "He just has to take another step as far as being consistent, understanding what it is to be a professional and go from there." Britt, who turns 23 in September, caught 42 passes for 775 yards and nine TDs in 2010 and figures to be the Titans' top target among their wideouts next season. Second-year WR Damian Williams, who played sparingly as a rookie, could also contend for playing time. Graves said Williams' intelligence is an asset. "He understands pass concepts," said Graves, who coached the Titans' wideouts from 2007-10. "He understands defensive coverages, so that all is going to help him, because you'll be able to move him around, put him in different positions."
