Three third-round selections — receiver Damian Williams (77th pick in 2010) and defensive tackles
Williams has 91 receptions for 1,135 yards and five touchdowns in 16 starts and 44 games with the Titans. He set career highs with 45 catches for 592 yards and all of his scoring plays in 2011 and has developed a knack for tapping his toes in bounds near the sideline or back of the end zone after leaping catches.
Stevens’ primary responsibility is as a blocker but his hands are more than stable in the passing game and he moves fluidly. He averaged 18.4 yards per reception in 2011 thanks to a 58-yarder during a game-winning drive against Denver and followed with career bests of 23 receptions for 275 yards in 2012.
Casey has started 31 of 32 games played in two seasons and has been quite consistent. He recorded 74 tackles as a rookie and 80 last year. Casey has 5.5 sacks, 12 quarterback pressures, 11 tackles for loss and three forced fumbles in two seasons on the interior of the defensive line.
Martin made one start and played in all 16 games as a rookie. He recorded 40 tackles, three sacks, three quarterback pressures and five tackles for loss.
The Titans signed Greene to be a change-of-style complement to speedster
Tennessee is scheduled to pick 10th overall in Thursday’s NFL Draft and make nine overall selections during the three-day event. Those picks include two spots in the third round (70th and 97th overall). Click here to visit Titans Draft Central.
