Zach Brown has been selected for a reason. Many of us were angered by the pick because Konz was still on the board; however, he wasn't the right pick. Zach Brown was the pick because this is now a passing league where teams want to use explosive two-tight end packages. The Colts have drafted to achieve this, as many other teams have too; thus, teams need to have linebackers that can cover those big and fast tight ends. That is where Brown comes in. His speed and coverage abilities make him a Day 1 starter for the Titans. He will be expected to cover the Gronkmonster in Week , and he will do it well!
