2015 NFL Draft: Top 3 edge rushers for Tennessee Titans

Another deep class

Much like running back, the edge rushing class this year is also very deep. These three names are all players I could see coming in and helping the Tennessee Titans in a rotational role immediately.

Trey Flowers, Arkansas

Talk about underrated, what more does Flowers have to do to get people on his side. Flowers has a unique variety of moves that help him be effective as a pass rusher, but he really shines as a run defender on the edge. Flowers could be a great player to bring in on sub packages as a base end, and I could see him having a very similar career to Derrick Morgan.

Davis Tull, Tennessee-Chattanooga

Tull is a physical freak that had one of the most productive college careers of any player in the 2015 NFL Draft. Sure he played against weaker competition, but he has all the measurable to translate to the NFL and thrive if he has the right coach. Hmmmm does anyone know a coach that might be able to develop edge rusher on the Titans roster...

Za'Darius Smith, Kentucky

Like Flowers, Smith is a player that would be very fun to watch as a sub-package 4-3 DE. He has the physicality to be very good and he doesn't face a huge step up in competition. He is a raw player who only started playing football in 2010, so while he doesn't have a ton of experience, he is seemingly very coachable.
