Titans rookie fifth-round DT Karl Klug is used to getting lost in the shuffle. Playing alongside Adrian Clayborn and Christian Ballard at Iowa, Klug wasn't the biggest or fastest lineman, but he found a way to be productive, often because of his exceptional motor and willingness to do the dirty work. In his first year with the Titans, Klug does not come with same fanfare as first-round QB Jake Locker or starting SLB Akeem Ayers, but that does not mean the coaching staff isn't taking notice. Klug is listed as a starter on the team's unofficial depth chart, and played well starting the preseason opener against the Vikings. Klug has capitalized on his opportunities with DT Sen'Derrick Marks missing time because of a shoulder injury. Although undersized, Klug is stout and uses his hands well. As often as the Titans rotate interior linemen, it appears Klug will be in the mix for snaps even after Marks returns.
