Right Defensive End: Derrick Morgan / Jacob Ford
Defensive Tackle: Tony Brown
Defensive Tackle: Jason Jones / Joven Haye / Sen'Derrick Marks / Dave Ball
Left Defensive End: William Hayes / Jason Babin / Dave Ball
Derrick Morgan isn't starting now, but he almost definitely will be by season’s end. He was drafted to play right away, and shouldn't have a problem beating out the other Titans defensive ends in time. Morgan would be starting right now if it wasn't for injuries that kept him out most of camp.
Right now Jacob Ford and William Hayes are the starters. Hayes started last year so Ford will most likely be put back into his situational pass-rusher role from last season.
Jason Babin should receive plenty of reps as he is the type of high motor the defensive end the Titans covet.
Tony Brown is the only player left from the "Chain Gang" days. Of course, that may change after hearing the latest Albert Haynesworth trade rumors. Brown is a converted defensive end who is a very solid interior pass rusher.
Jason Jones looks to fulfill the potential he showed in his rookie season. The three and a half sacks and three forced fumbles against the Steelers showed just how good he can be. He wasn't able to play much in 2009 because of an injury.
Joven Haye should be far more effective this year after losing twenty pounds. He said he didn't feel comfortable playing at 300 pounds as he is more of an athletic type of defensive tackle.
Second year defensive tackle Sen'Derrick Marks supposedly had a good offseason and should receive much more playing time in his second season. Being a second round pick, he better show some promise soon.
NFL journeyman Dave Ball will provide depth to both the defensive end and tackle positions.
The defensive line couldn't be much worse than it was in 2009, but with the addition of Morgan and improvements from young players like Hayes, Jones, Ford, and Marks, the line could return to a more respectable play.
