Titans miss out on UCLA's Anthony Barr

5/8/2014

Blow up the majority mock.

The Tennessee Titans are not getting UCLA outside linebacker Anthony Barr with the No. 11 pick in the draft. He just went to Minnesota at No. 9.

The Titans are shifting to a 3-4 front and their pass rush was nothing special a year ago, with interior lineman Jurrell Casey producing the most push and a team-high 10.5 sacks. The edge rush needed upgrading.

With Kamerion Wimbley back at linebacker and Shaun Phillips added, they should be better. Akeem Ayers and Derrick Morgan, moving from end, are also at outside linebacker.

That’s a potentially nice four pack.

But Ayers and Morgan are in contract years while Wimbley will be 31 in October and Phillips will be 33 on Tuesday.
