2010 NFL Draft one year later: Tennessee Titans

One year ago I felt pretty good about the 2010 draft class of the Tennessee Titans. A year later this class has lost a bit of its shine. Of course some of that is due to injury and some of that is due to the turmoil surrounding this team last year. For me this class still has big upside and I would expect the new regime in Tennessee will use these guys in bigger roles.

Here is a quick look at the 2010 Titans draft class:

  • Round One- DE Derrick Morgan
  • Round Three- WR Damian Williams
  • Round Three- LB Rennie Curran
  • Round Four- DB Alterraun Verner
  • Round Five- S Robert Johnson
  • Round Six- QB Rusty Smith
  • Round Six- S Myron Rolle
  • Round Seven- WR Marc Mariani
  • Round Seven- DT David Howard

So Morgan had 1.5 sacks before his season ended due to a torn ACL. Williams had 16 catches but no TD’s. Curran was inactive for seven games but contributed when he got a chance to. Verner had 101 tackles and three picks after being pressed into service due to injury. He has won a starting job on this team. Johnson was inactive the entire year, and Smith threw three picks in a start versus the Texans. Rolle spent the year on the practice squad, while Mariani really helped the Titans return game. Howard was cut in camp.

Not a ton of production but we got to figure Morgan rebounds and Verner will be a starter. That is at least two starters from this class, and a very good return man. If they get anything from the others this class looks a whole lot better. If they don’t it will remain an average class.
