Tennessee Titans select DT Sen’Derrick Marks in 2nd round

Perhaps inspired by Albert Haynesworth’s departure, the Tennessee Titans addressed the defensive tackle position by taking Auburn’s Sen’Derrick Marks with the 62nd pick in the second round.

Marks is a young and talented DT who decided to pass up his senior year to enter the 2009 Draft. He’s a guy that I mentioned as a draft day possibility for the Titans in an article a few weeks ago.

Known for his agility and athleticism, Marks has the ability to emerge as a viable contributor down the road, especially with DL coach Jim Washburn yelling expletives in his ear on a routine basis.

Considering what he wrote in his personal draft diary, it should be no surprise that his NFL journey will begin in the city of Nashville:

“The Tennessee Titans flew me in for a visit. They didn’t spend much time making physical assessments, though, and seemed more interested in getting to know me as a person. I guess they wanted to see how I act around people, how well I can relate with people.”

“I really liked it there. Everyone from (head coach) Jeff Fisher on down acted like normal people the whole time, which was really cool.”

What are your thoughts on the Titans’ new defensive tackle?
