The Tennessee Titans entered into the off season needing to upgrade the interior of their offensive line and finding a pass rusher to make life uncomfortable for opposing quarterbacks.
Through free agency, the Titans have added quality and much needed depth to a talented but inconsistent offensive line. Since the Titans addressed their offensive line concerns via free agency they can now use the tenth pick in the 2013 NFL Draft to find a defensive play maker who will help restore order in the AFC South Division with the Titans retaking their rightful place at division champs and a perennial playoff contender.
Although BYU defensive end Ezekiel Ansah is projected to be a top five pick, if he is available the Titans will happily welcome him to the Music City with open arms. Ansah has only played organized football for three years, but he has the tools to be molded into an elite pass rusher.
Ansah will be in good hands with Titans Defensive Pass Rush Specialist Keith Millard, who has a history of turning promise and potential into All-Pro production. Ansah barely scratched the surface at BYU but he likely may morph into the steal of the draft if his effort and work ethic on the field and in the film match the potential the Titans could not ignore.
Although one player can rarely make a difference, Titans fans can remember how Jevon Kearse transformed the Titans into an elite defense, if we are fortunate maybe Ansah will do the same.
