NFL Mock Draft 2014: Titans take Anthony Barr

New, comments

The Titans need an edge rusher. Anthony Barr is that guy.

Jeff Gross

Dan Kadar put out a new mock draft this week, and he has the Tennessee Titans taking Anthony Barr, OLB, UCLA....again. I am still holding out hope that they will find a way to get Khalil Mack. That probably won't happen, so it is reasonably likely that Barr will be the guy at 11.

Here is what Kadar said about the pick:

The Titans brought in new pieces on defense via free agency, but will still use a standup pass rusher for defensive coordinator Ray Horton. Barr may be limited as a pass rusher, but the importance of that can't be overlooked. Although he may not do much else initially, he can come in and provide a blitz.

Kadar also posted a couple of other options for the Titans with this pick- C.J. Mosley and/or Calvin Pryor. Yes on Mosely....no on Pryor (at 11).
