Tennessee Titans Morning Links: No Show CJ Edition

Tennessee_titans_30x21 CJ2K is not attending OTA's, though he is Tweeting about working out in Florida. Keep in mind that he isn't the only one missing the OTA's: Bo Scaife and Stephen Tulloch are confirmed as missing the earliest OTAs. 

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Derrick Morgan's motor and ferocity are drawing comparisons to some pretty memorable Titans DEs: Kyle Vanden Bosch and Jevon Kearse. With that comaprison in mind, lets temper expectations by remembering that KVB was a complete mess his fist few years in the league, Kearse flamed out after his first few years...

Tennessee_titans_30x21 After hours of investigative work, Jim Wyatt digs up one analyst who really likes the Titans' draft.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 In all honesty, I'm surprised it didn't come out earlier that Dali Dungy wasn't linked as a 'mentor' to LeGarrette Blount, because it probably would have given teams the public cover to draft him.  Everyone knows it's better to have one Dungy sign-off on you than a thousand Kipers and McShays.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 The NFL Fanhouse's Chris Harry breaks-down the AFC South draft picks, including the Tennessee Titans' selections:

Best pick: Derrick Morgan, DE, Georgia Tech (1st round, No. 16 overall): Morgan was rated by most as the best defensive end in the draft, but ended up being the third taken. One of the reasons the Titans took a big step backward from '08 in '09 was because of a sub-par pass rush. Morgan should be instant impact. 

Riskiest pick: Myron Rolle, S, Florida State (6th round, No. 207 overall): Since there is no "Smartest pick" category, we'll put the sixth-round choice of the Rhodes Scholar here. Rolle was never a great playmaker with the Seminoles and knows that if he struggles he has a medical career (and Oxford education) to fall back on. 

Final analysis: Five of the first seven picks were defensive players, an obvious attempt to upgrade the overall talent of the league's 28th-ranked defense. Three of those players were defensive backs, but keep an eye on Georgia outside linebacker Rennie Curran, who may be undersized but is a high-effort tackling machine.
