TST Community Mock, Round 1, Pick 8

With the 8th pick in the 2011 TST Community Mock Draft, the Tennessee Titans, represented by Habte E select: Marcell Dareus, DT, Alabama

Habte chimes in on why he picked the big man:

New defensive coordinator Jerry Gray has expressed his desire to get bigger upfront and what better way to do that than with a 315 pound DT.  The Titans can now pair Dareus with the new upcoming star of that defensive line, Jason Jones, and create one of the top DT combos in the league.

There is no doubt the Titans will get bigger after adding Marcell Dareus, exactly as Habte E says. By adding a player like Dareus or Nick Fairley, they can allow Jason Jones to be more effective. Dareus' ability to collapse the pocket and his overall athleticism makes him a very juicy option for a team looking to upgrade the defensive tackle position. While he may not possess the talent of Ndamukong Suh, he still is one of the top, if not the top player at that position right now. Good pick.

CaliRamMan and the Dallas Cowboys are now on the clock.
