SMU defensive end/tight end hybrid Taylor Thompson was on the golf course in Houston Saturday when the Titans called him up to inform him they'd be drafting him in a couple minutes. Tennessee was one of 10 teams Thompson had been talking with months leading up to the NFL Draft and he couldn't be happier about his placement.

Tennessee Titans 2012 Draft Grades

20. WR Kendall Wright A-Kendall Wright was 16th on my board and fills a need at wide receiver as Nate Washington is not a #1 receiver and Kenny Britt is unreliable. Without Britt, they struggled for consistency at the wide receiver position. This pick should be an A, but I don’t see how they passed on David DeCastro. He was arguably the top prospect of the decade at their position...

Former Michigan DT Mike Martin celebrates being drafted by Tennessee Titans

Mike Martin started 37 games at defensive tackle for Michigan from 2008-2011.  He was a two-time All Big Ten selection.  Friday night, he realized a dream when the Tennessee Titans drafted him in the third round of the NFL draft.  Martin held a draft party at an Ann Arbor restaurant with family and friends.

Now he's hoping to try playing in the NFL. Diles is a five-year veteran...

When the Tennessee Titans selected Kendall Wright in the first round of last week's NFL draft, one of the big questions was what kind of role he might play in the offense. To get a handle on that question, and what his acquistion might mean for the Titans' other pass-catchers, I thought it would be a good idea to look at to whom the Titans threw the ball in 2011 and whatthat...

Evaluating the Titans' post-draft additions

I kept track of the Titans' undrafted free agent additions, but didn't add any commentary. With the Titans making a couple moves today other than that, it's time to add a level of analysis to the information collation and reportage. I'll start with the undrafted free agents and then add the other players:WR Devin Aguilar-One of four wideouts the Titans drafted. A...

Redrafting for the Titans

If the Titans had not drafted the players they did last week, who might they have drafted instead? I've done a redraft for the Titans with the following rules - each pick must be different from the Titans picks, no matter how much I may have liked one or more of them, and each pick must be someone who was actually available at that spot - I wasn't allowed to trade with the...
