    SUMMARY: Height: 6-0Weight: 31140 Time: 5.08With the 169th pick of the 2006 NFL Draft, the Tennessee Titans select Tennessee DT Jesse Mahelona.Mahelona is a hard-working one-gap tackle who plays with a nasty attitude. He explodes off the snap, plays with good pad level and displays solid hand technique protecting himself. He fires up the field between gaps, flashes on the scene and has a burst of closing speed. He stays with the action and plays injured.

    I'm very, very happy about this pick. Mahelona was an All-American his Junior year but had a subpar Senior year. I've thought all along that Jesse was way underated, and he fell right to us. He's going to make some plays this year.

    First pick in this draft (aside from Young) that actually made sense to me...

    Good pick, Mahelona would have been a first, early second if he came out last year.

    Seems like a lot of positive reactions from the people on the board

    Our DT position needs depth, and this is a solidpick
