UCLA junior linebacker Akeem Ayers has just been selected with the seventh pick in the second round, pick 39 overall. Ayers will be a strong fit for the Titans, who need an outside linebacker or two, after getting just 5.5 sacks from linebacker last year.
Ayers will join former UCLA cornerback Alterraun Verner with the Titans. Junior safety Rahim Moore is projected to be picked up shortly in the draft.
A conference call with Ayers is planned for later today.
