Found May 03, 2012 on It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
PLAYERS: Mike Martin
TEAMS: 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.

He posted a video of the highlights of the night on his YouTube channel, including the immediate aftermath of the Titans notifying him he was their pick.

Per the Free Press:

“Titan Nation, baby,” Martin shouts. He then shares a celebratory toast with his group. “I just want to say to everybody that’s here, you guys are here because, whether you know it or not, you’ve played a part of my life and I wouldn’t be here and where I am today without everybody here, my friends, my family, my mentors, everybody. You guys mean so much to me and I’m just ready to start the next phase of my life and you guys are going to be there as well.”

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...

How might the Titans target their receivers in 2012?

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...

Thompson talks Titans

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.

Patriots Very Early Favorites for Week 1 Matchup Against Titans

The start of the NFL’s 2012 regular season is starting to come into focus even though Week 1 is still four months away. But that’s not to say we can’t analyze every New England opponent and project a line for each game. Obviously, these will just be projections because injuries will happen and teams can be dramatically better or worse than expected once the first kickoff arrives...

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...
