With the 77th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Tennessee Titans took USC defensive tackle Jurrell Casey. During the draft process, Casey slid down the draft board as the loaded crop of defensive linemen pulled away and Casey dropped. But Casey may be better than where he was drafted and many analysts had him high on their positional big boards, ranking him among the top-5 defensive linemen to start the draft.
In Tennessee, he'll jump into the defensive line rotation in an effort to restore the Titans stability up-front after a down year in 2011.
