The Tennessee Titans have a great starting tandem, but unless they can land a stud cornerback at 5 and really tighten up at the linebacker level then this is something they have to have.

Derrick Morgan’s job is starting over the right tackle and he really does his work with his hand in the ground. From what I can tell, they want him coming forward on nearly every down and only want to drop him to confuse the offensive line.
Behind him you have Kevin Dodd, who is a mixed bag.
On one hand, you should like some of the flashes he showed against Detroit this year and the fact that he never was really fully healthy.
Then again, he also missed a huge chunk of the season last year and he is going to be 25 this year with only one career sack.
Even if you take him as the third best EDGE on this team and you consider yourself two-deep at behind Derrick Morgan, who is behind Brian Orakpo?
I believe in this defense, you need a very good athlete to play the way Brian Orakpo does. They have to be able to rush the passer and drop into coverage from snap to snap. If you can’t have that when Orakpo goes to the bench then you neuter your defense.
The Tennessee Titans need a young, athletic pass rusher on this team behind Brian Orakpo or else the coverage may struggle again this year.
