Titans Draft Southern Miss LB McRath in 4th Round

Titans Draft CentralNASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Tennessee Titans have turned their attention to defense again in the fourth round, selecting Southern Miss linebacker Gerald McRath to add depth to special teams and defense.

The 6-foot-2, 220-pound McRath led Conference USA in tackling in 2008 and was the league's defensive player of the year in 2007. He already has earned his degree and has good speed for a linebacker.

The Titans are making nine of their 11 picks on the second day of the NFL Draft after trading their second-round pick in 2010 for a third-round pick.

McRath is the 130th pick overall and one of two draft picks for Tennessee in the fourth round.
