This time around Kiper projects UCLA outside linebacker Anthony Barr to Tennessee. Barr has become the standard default pick for the Titans.
I like this pick better that Lewan for Tennessee.
The Titans are going to be a hybrid defense, shifting toward a 3-4. Akeem Ayers translates as does Kamerion Wimbley, but Wimbley is expensive with a $7.8 million cap charge and a $6 million base. He may need to take a pay reduction to stick around. Cutting him would save $2.4 million.
Barr projects as a 3-4 outside linebacker and has a connection to the Titans. New linebackers coach Lou Spanos was Barr’s defensive coordinator at UCLA.
Barr is agile and fast and has excellent pass-rushing attributes that include long arms and great athleticism. If he's on the board at No. 11, I think he's a guy the Titans will seriously consider in the spot.
