Titans Draft Michigan DT Mike Martin in Third Round

Posted Apr 27, 2012

The Titans shored up their defensive line with the addition of Michigan DT Mike Martin in the third round.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Tennessee Titans have made tackle Mike Martin of Michigan their first defensive lineman selected in the 2012 NFL draft at No. 82 overall in the third round.

The 6-foot-1, 306-pound Martin had 172 career tackles with 10 sacks and 25 tackles for loss in 49 games at Michigan. He ranked among the best tackles in drills at the NFL combine in February as he posted the third-best vertical jump and tied for the best broad jump. Only Dontari Poe, a first-round pick by Kansas City, did better than his 36 reps on the bench press.

The Titans need help on the defensive line to boost a pass rush that managed only 28 sacks in 2011. They also need help against the run after ranking 24th in the league.
