Kenny Britt has had a great rookie season so far for the Tennessee Titans. Britt has played very well for his new squad but has been given no publicity. Here is some information on those who are not familiar with Britt.

Britt was born in New Jersey and attended his hometown college, Rutgers. In his freshman season he was named one of the two starting wide receivers for the Scarlet Knights. In 2006, Rutgers arguably had its best year ever. Britt, along with fellow NFL player and Rutgers alum Ray Rice, were major reasons for this.

In Britt's second year of college football he was named to the All-Big-East Second Team. Britt led all of college football in receiving in his sophomore year.

Last year (Britt's last year in college football), Britt was an Associated Press Third-Team All-American and was named to the All-Big-East First Team, rather than Second Team like the year before.

After his junior year, Britt decided he would skip his senior year and enter the 2009 NFL Draft.

Britt was selected with the 30th pick in the first round by the Tennessee Titans. In his first NFL season, Britt has played very well. But sadly he is probably not being considered for the Rookie of the Year Award, even though he should be.

This season, Britt currently has 38 receptions along with 642 receiving yards and three touchdowns.

NFL fans, in the next year or two, expect Britt to be a star for the Titans.
