The Tennessee Titans have already added Andy Levitre and tight end Delanie Walker during free agency and in the 2013 NFL Draft will have nine selections.

Here’s a look at how the draft will look.

First Round No.10Jonathan Cooper, G/CNorth Carolina

Even with the signing of Levitre to improve the offensive line the Titans will take Cooper a versatille player who can also play center. Though he turned down a chance to play in the Senior Bowl he impressed at the combine.

Second Round No.40Kawann ShortDTPurdue

The Titans defense did not play well against the run and Short gets the opportunity to make an immediate impact. In 2012 he had 43 tackles, 15.5 tackles for loss, seven sacks, four passes broken up, four blocked kicks and a forced fumble. During the 2011 season recorded 54 tackles with 17.5 for loss, had 6.5 sacks, forced a fumble and blocked a kick.

Third Round No.70Stedman BaileyWRWest Virginia

With Kenny Britt off field problems and injuries the Titans need another receiver for Jake Locker. Bailey provides just that and had a great 2012 season catching 113 passes for 1,627 yards and 25 touchdowns. In 2011 he caught 72 passes for 1,279 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Third Round No.97David AmersonCBNorth Carolina State 

A tall cornerback at 6’1″Amerson is a solid pick here. He recorded 61 tackles with one tackle for a loss, 12 passes broken up and five interceptions with one returned for a touchdown. His 2011 was outstanding in which he recorded 13 interceptions with two returned for touchdowns, 59 tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss and five passes broken up.

Fourth Round No.107Trevardo WilliamsOLBConnecticut

Derrick Morgan led the Titans in sacks with 6.5, which is why taking Williams is necessary. He he 42 tackles withe 13.5 tackles for loss, 11.5 sacks and a fumble forced and produced just as well in 2011 recording 43 tackles, 15 tackles for loss, 12.5 sacks, two passes broken up and two forced fumbles.

Sixth Round No.202Jordan RodgersQBVanderbilt

If Locker doesn’t pan out or gets hurt, Rodgers could develop into a solid quarterback. He completed 60 percent of his passes and threw for 2,539 yards  and 15 touchdowns to five interceptions in 2012.

Seventh Round No.216:  Ray GrahamRBPittsburgh

There’s not much depth behind Chris Johnson at running back, which makes Graham a great choice here. He started the 2012 season off slowly yet ran for 1,042 yards on 222 carries and he found the end zone 11 times. Played in only eight games in 2011, still managed 964 yards on 164 carries.

Seventh Round No.248Michael MautiILBPenn State

Three knee injuries will scare teams away from Mauti, yet when on the field he produced. In 2012 he had 96 tackles, four tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, three fumbles forced, three interceptions and two passes broken up.
