NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Titans are trying to add some much-needed help on defense and have drafted North Carolina linebacker Zach Brown with the 52nd pick overall.
The Titans started the second round Friday night trying to improve a pass rush that ranked next to last in the NFL last season. They drafted receiver Kendall Wright in the first round.
The 6-foot-1, 242-pound Brown set the North Carolina record with a 6.72-second time in the 60 meters as a member of the Tar Heels track team in 2009. He was timed at 4.44 in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine in February and was even faster at his pro day (4.37 seconds in the 40).
Brown had seven career interceptions at North Carolina and forced three fumbles as a senior.
