The Tennessee Titans announced today that they have agreed to terms with 2nd round pick Kevin Dodd. The Titans have now signed 9 of their 10 draft picks. 3rd round safety Kevin Byard is the lone player that hasn't been signed. Here is Dodd signing his contract:

Dodd is currently rehabbing from a foot injury that he sustained in rookie mini-camp. He had surgery last week and is expected to be ready to go when training camp opens.
Dodd probably won't technically be a starter for this team in 2016 because the Titans have two solid outside linebackers in Brian Orakpo and Derrick Morgan, but he will see a lot of playing time. The Titans had zero depth behind those two guys last year. That is why they spent the 2nd round pick on Dodd who burst onto the national radar with a huge game against Alabama in the National Championship Game.
Details on the contract:
