Tennessee Titans Pick S Markelle Martin with the 190th Pick of the 2012 NFL Draft


With the 190th pick of the 2012 NFL Draft the Tennessee Titans selected S Markelle Martin of Oklahoma State. The Titans waited a long time to address the position in the draft and this isn’t the best draft for safeties.

The Titans address a need area and grabbing Martin in the 6th round is a pretty good value pick. That being said, he’ll most likely be a back-up safety for most of his career, as he doesn’t seem to have those killer safety instincts you like to see and can struggle with tackling.

My quick grade of the Titans 2012 draft class is a B-. Left areas of need unfilled and passed on some good players.
