Round 1: Jevon Kearse (1999)
Who else other than ‘The Freak?’ Jevon Kearse (1999), Keith Bulluck (2000) and Albert Haynesworth (2002) were the cornerstones of some successful defenses that led to multiple playoff appearances during the early-2000s. Kearse had 9.5-plus sacks in four of his first five seasons. After joining the Philadelphia Eagles in 2004, Kearse’s sack totals declined. He re-joined Tennessee to finish the last two seasons of his career.
Other Defensive Picks: Kenny Holmes (1997), Keith Bulluck (2000), Albert Haynesworth (2002), Andre Woolfolk (2003), Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones (2005), Michael Griffin (2007), Derrick Morgan (2010)
