Everyone around here seems to identify 3 possible positions of needs that the Titans could/should address in round 1 of the upcoming draft: CB, LB and D-line. As far as D-line goes, everyone is focusing on DEs like Morgan, Graham, Dunlap and Pierre-Paul. I haven't really heard anyone discuss the possibility of taking a DT instead of a DE. In 2008, it was clear that the Titans needed to draft a playmaker on offense. Most (if not all) of us figured this would be a WR. Instead, the Titans took a playmaking RB named Chris Johnson (a position that none of us thought would be an option in round 1). It worked out pretty well. In 2010, it's clear that the team needs to generate more pressure with its defensive front. That pressure doesn't have to come from a DE, though. We all saw what Haynesworth did to the D-line overall. Mediocre DEs (like KVB) can become studs when they line up next to good DTs in the Titans' system. So why not draft a DT instead of a DE if the value is there? Obviously Suh and McCoy are going to be done, but this is a draft class that's very deep in DTs. Dan Williams and Terrence Cody are guys who will probably be available when the Titans pick. I'm interested in hearing your thoughts on how the possible DT value available at pick 16 relates to the possible DE value. I think I'm leaning toward hoping the Titans find a stud DT.
