Titans take WR Britt, Cardinals Up

I projected that the Titans would take a receiver for the first since 1998, but with Percy Harvin off the board, thought the Titans might instead shift their attention to the defensive side of the ball. Instead, they took Kenny Britt, whose size and straight-line speed gives the club a big, deep threat they need to take advantage of the safeties cheating close to stop their running game.

The Cardinals have obvious needs at running back and may consider Chris "Beanie" Wells here, though as a bigger, physical back, he is a little similar to what they already have in Tim Hightower. Wells has great potential as a downhill runner, but offers little as a receiver or pass blocker, which might make him a tough fit for the pass-heavy Cardinals.

A pass rusher like Clint Sintim is also a possibility, though inside linebacker Rey Maualuga and cornerback Darius Butler make a lot of sense simply due to their value.
 
At this point in the draft, Maualuga is just too much of a value for a team needing LBs and more physicality on the defensive side of the ball.
