Post-Draft Outlook:BEST PICK: Kenny Britt, the Titans' first-rounder (30th overall), was a pick the Titans had to make, after years of ignoring the receiver position. Even if Britt fails to live up to expectations, the Titans won't find much criticism in the choice, simply because it is the first time they have taken a receiver in the first round in 11 years. A closer look at the Titans' picks: Round 1/30 -- Kenny Britt, WR, 6-3, 215, Rutgers...With virtually no depth behind starters Nate Washington and Justin Gage, the Titans took the plunge and drafted Britt. Sitting at pick No. 30, they hoped to land either Britt or Hakeem Nicks, who went one pick earlier to the New York Giants. Britt gives the Titans a potential big-play receiver, something missing from the offense for at least five years. - by The Sports Xchange

Draft Scout *Kenny Britt News
05/31/13 - WR Kenny Britt has teased, tantalized and flashed the vast potential the Titans saw in him when they selected him in the first-round out of Rutgers in 2009.
But thanks to injuries and Britt's numerous off-field issues, the Titans haven't seen it nearly often enough to say they can count on him to deliver and be a true No. 1-type playmaking receiver.
As Britt enters the final year of his rookie contract, he comes off a season in which he had a career-high 42 catches, but still one of vast disappointment in his first year back from a torn ACL in his right knee from 2011.
Now, as the Titans begin OTAs, Britt declares himself in the best shape of his career and ready to finally fulfill the hopes that Tennessee had in him from the beginning.
Britt is at a crossroads in his career in many ways. Not only have injuries and numerous police run-ins plagued him, but he is also entering the final year of his deal. It is pretty much believed that in order to secure any type long-term look by the Titans, Britt has to have a monster season on the field and be a model citizen off it.
"Every year is important to me, but this year it's important for me to come out and stay healthy," Britt said. "I feel good. I feel like I'm in the best shape I've ever been in, so I'm excited about this year. I'm not going to worry about the contract, because that's for later. I'm just more worried about me staying healthy."
