The Titans finally addressed the defensive line in the NFL Draft Sunday, snaring Antonio Johnson of Mississippi State in the fifth round.

Johnson, however, is a defensive tackle and the Titans were believed to be more in need of a defensive end along the line.

Still, Johnson has good speed for a man his size (6-3, 210) and will be a project for defensive line coach Jim Washburn to work with.
