The Titans will not take a DT in the 1st

Many mocks have the Tennessee Titans taking a DT. The TItans don’t need a DT. Unless it is Suh or McCoy I guarantee they won’t take one in the 1st. This is a position many people think the Titans need more than they do. Just because the Titans defense declined post-Albert Haynsworth doesn’t mean it was because of the DT position. It was largely because our DEs were far worse and because Nick Harper couldn’t cover a rock. Albert drew double teams and that helped, but we have Jason Jones (2008 2nd round pick, great potential, way better off as a DT than as a DE), Tony Brown (Pro Bowl caliber), and Sen’Derrick Marks (2009 2nd round pick, also has tremendous potential). We also have hole-plugger Kevin Vickerson as our 4th DT. 

The Titans top needs are DE, CB, and OLB (along with a KR/PR). Second tier needs are S and RB if Lendale White ends up somewhere else. We won't be taking a DT in the first even if both Williams and Price are available, and probably won't take a DT in the first 4 rounds if we take one at all.
