Tennessee Titans: The trick to the Titans has been a solid wall of defensive linemen that you can’t do anything against. That is gone. They have quarterback problems they won’t acknowledge and have never found a receiver they liked yet. Let’s see how they did…

Rnd 1: Derrick Morgan DE Georgia Tech.   I have this opinion that says if the player can’t dominate good college players, he sure won’t dominate average NFL players. Derrick Morgan could not handle what Iowa did to him in the Orange Bowl. Defensive Ends are not draft selections that work out very often. Picking a defensive end that wasn’t that super when it counted at a lower level makes no sense.  One star for Derrick Morgan.

Rnd 2: No selection. That makes me smile.

Rnd 3: Damian Williams WR Southern Cal.  Although he looks like a great receiver with long arms and a fast YAC ability, there is also a strong belief all you have to do is hit this guy hard and he quits. Matt Jones was like that, didn’t like contact. Brandon LaFell was right behind him and Brandon is not afraid of contact. Another failure for the Titans.

Rnd 3: Rennie Curran LB Georgia.   Don’t know much about this choice. The combine numbers show a guy who ran the 20 yard cone drill in 4.4.  Want to guess how what Zack Miller is going to do to him in coverage? I can tell you and so can Brian Cushing.  Rennie is also a midget linebacker at 5 foot 11 inches. He is stout at 235, but short and trouble in pass coverage. Not seeing this pick either.

Overall: Nothing. The Titans will fall further into basement unless they bring Albert back. No Albert, start Vince Young, waste your draft. Welcome to 2010 Tennessee.
