"I’m doing some paraphrasing here, but Munchak said the Titans might well look toward the defensive side of the ball in the first round, trying to find a "difference maker."
That would make sense, considering the Titans finished second-to-last in the league in sacks per pass attempt last season and tied for eighth-to-last in interceptions.
Here’s what some of the early mock drafts predict for the Titans in the first round:
USC DE Nick Perry (Sports Illustrated)
Nebraska CB Alfonzo Dennard (Sporting News)
Michigan State DT Jerel Worthy (CBS Sports’ Dane Brugler)
South Carolina OLB Melvin Ingram (CBS Sports’ Rob Rang).
Munchak also said he could see the Titans taking an offensive lineman as early as the second or third round, since they haven’t focused on that area in the draft for the past few years."
**Sounds about right!
