After a good start in 2010, the Titans seemed to fall apart mid-season. It became clear by the season’s end that Vince Young simply is not a good fit for the team, and it seems likely to some that the Titans will look for a solid QB to start over.
According to my predictions, with Gabbert and Newton gone, the lack of true standout QBs left in the draft will lead the Titans to fulfill other needs. I think they will go with DT Nick Fairley.
The Titans don’t have enormous problems at defensive tackle, and the unit did fine last year. However, the unit is not perfect, and Nick Fairley is simply too good to pass up. Adding him to their tackling unit would likely take it from decent to excellent.
Though there have been questions about his character, he possesses excellent pass rushing skills, quickness, strength and explosiveness. He is also considered a very versatile player that could excel on both the inside and outside.
He is likely to rank very highly on the draft boards of many teams, and if still available this late, it would be wise for the Titans to take him.
