Much will be expected from the Titans' 2009 draft class this season. WR Kenny Britt, Tennessee's first-round pick one year ago, likely will move into the starting lineup after leading the Titans in receiving yards (701) as a rookie. Fourth-round pick Gerald McRath had a fine rookie season and has a chance to move into the starting lineup; fast and athletic, McRath proved a quick learner in his first NFL season. CB Ryan Mouton, a third-round pick, could start opposite of Cortland Finnegan. TE Jared Cook has rare speed and athleticism for the position and could earn a bigger role in the offense after an injury-plagued rookie season. Cook, whom Tennessee traded up for in Round Three of last year's draft — surrendering a 2010 second-round pick in the process — caught just nine passes last season. Second-round pick Sen'Derrick Marks will be a part of Tennessee's rotation at defensive tackle, though he is unlikely to start.
