Flash Analysis

It wasn't a secret that the Tennessee Titans were in need of pass-rushing help.

Some feel that they got a steal with Georgia Tech DE Derrick Morgan. In fact, many league sources felt he would be selected within the top-10 picls.

Scouts call Morgan the most complete pure pass rusher available for this year's draft.

He'll be an instant starter for a team that really needs a young edge rusher like Morgan.
