Prediction: Amare Barno, EDGE: Titans, Round 5 Pick 169
Tennessee may look for an edge player earlier in the draft, but if they prioritize linebacker and wide receiver as many think they will do, look for someone like Barno to appear in some of their later picks.
The Titans should have many starters returning on the defensive side of the ball, but a team focused on defense needs depth. Barno can bring the diverse tools to work his way up from valuable bench piece to an eventual starter.
Defense wins championships and Tennessee is not happy about last year’s early postseason exit. Look for them to take a defensive-heavy approach this weekend.
