NEW YORK -- With the 34th pick in the seventh round, the 241st overall selection, in the 2010 National Football League Draft, Brown's David Howard was selected by the Tennessee Titans.
Howard was one of six defensive players the Titans drafted, becoming the first Ivy League player drafted since former Bear standout Zak DeOssie was the 116th pick in the fourth round of the 2007 NFL Draft. He was one of two defensive linemen Tennessee selected with the other coming in the Titans' first-round selection, the No. 16 overall pick, of Georgia Tech defensive end Derrick Morgan.
A two-time first-team All-Ivy selection, Howard finished his senior season with 29 total tackles, including six tackles for a loss of 23 yards, and a team-high eight quarterback hurries. At his Pro Day at Brown in March, he weighed in at 295 pounds and ran an impressive 5.03 in the 40-yard dash with a 32-inch vertical jump.
