Thursday's six games were chock full of takeaways as the preseason kicked off in earnest. So what should we be looking for in Friday's games? Here are 13 players to keep an eye on during Friday's six games.
1. Marcus Mariota, Titans quarterback: No rookie has been hyped up more than Mariota over the last three weeks. And let's be honest: August is rookie time. Lions running back Ameer Abdullah stole the show Thursday night. Blake Bortles got all the love last August. This is our first chance to see how comfortable Mariota reportedly has looked as a professional.
2-4. Hakeem Nicks, Dorial Green-Beckham, and Justin Hunter, Titans wide receivers: Nicks has been the talk of Titans camp and Hunter has also played well in practice. While Harry Douglas is listed ahead of both players for now, Nicks and Hunter have far higher ceilings. DGB, the talented rookie, has reportedly struggled to adapt to the NFL. He's fighting to be relevant in a sneaky fun receiver group.
