Titans select DL DaQuan Jones in 4th round

With their own fourth-round pick, 112th overall, in the 2014 NFL draft, the Titans selected Penn State defensive tackle DaQuan Jones. Jones’ most notable trait may be excellent size, measuring in at 6’3 3/4″, 322 pounds at the Combine. He played primarily as an 3-tech defensive tackle for the Nittany Lions. His early NFL role is more likely to be as a run-stuffer, I’d guess...

The Jets front seven was the strength of the team last year and the defensive tackle position may have been the strength of the front seven. So the Jets probably won’t be drafting any tackles...

Top 10 defensive tackles in the NFL Draft

Few positions in the NFL are as big of an enigma as defensive tackle. Finding a player who can do the job necessary in the interior of the d-line at times feels like an impossible mission, the NFL version of tracking down Sasquatch.
