The Tennessee Titans select DE Derrick Morgan with first-round pick

Welcome to Nashville, Derrick Morgan.

With their first-round selection, the Tennessee Titans filled their need at the DE position by picking up perhaps the draft’s most well-rounded pass rusher.

While he may not possess the “upside” of Jason Pierre-Paul, Morgan more than makes up for it with his solid combination of size, athleticism and the ability to play the run.

Morgan is one of the guys that Andrew took a look at in his series of prospect profiles. He’s a relentless pass-rusher who produced on the college level and is also known for being a solid run defender.

He’s a player who appears to have the maturity to step right in and become a factor on the Titans’ defensive line: a guy who can have an impact from day one.

I’m definitely excited about Morgan’s potential and here’s to hoping he’s more than up to the task of stepping up as a key player on the Titans’ defense for years to come.
