Ruston Webster completed his first draft as Tennessee Titans general manager. His day is far from over, as the team now must focus on signing undrafted free agents.

Here's how the Titans filled their roster on the final day of the draft.

Round 4, Pick 115: Coty Sensabaugh, CB, Clemson

The Titans made the most out of a fourth-round cornerback selection two years ago with Alterraun Verner.

It was a lock that the team would address cornerback at some point in this draft. Sensabaugh was a lightly scouted cornerback who made his first start as a redshirt senior. He is related to Gerald Sensabaugh, a safety on the Dallas Cowboys.

2012 is probably going to be a redshirt year for Coty Sansabaugh. He'll play some special teams and might push for the nickel role later in the year.

With Jason McCourty in the final year of his rookie deal, Sensabaugh could be a starter heading into 2013.

Round 4, Pick 145: Taylor Thompson, TE, SMU

Thompson is a project. He played defensive end for the Mustangs and started 43 consecutive games. The All-Conference USA defensive end had a playing weight of 290 and dropped 25 pounds to prepare for the position switch.

With 4.6 40 speed, Thompson will be a matchup nightmare. That's what the Titans are looking for, if you judge their 2012 draft class by one standard.

He's going to be a special teams guy at best this year, and if the team gets low on DE depth, he could play there in a pinch. 

Round 6, pick 190: Markelle Martin, FS, Oklahoma State

Have we met Michael Griffin's replacement? Martin was a leader on defense for the Cowboys. He was seen as a possible second- or third-round pick before missing the scouting combine with a knee injury.

That could be to the Titans' benefit, as they do not have a safety on the roster who has played a defensive snap.

Martin is a good tackler but can be aggressive to a fault. Titans fans who have watched Griffin play are nodding their heads.

Martin will play in 2012 and could take over the starting free safety role in 2013.

Round 7, pick 211: Scott Solomon, DE, Rice

This was one of the picks that the Cleveland Browns traded to the Minnesota Vikings to ensure that they'd get Trent Richardson in the first round. Ruston Webster was not finished drafting today, as the Titans traded their 2013 sixth-round pick to the Vikings to get this early seventh-rounder.

Solomon is a somewhat undersized end who could be a pass-rush specialist. He could sneak into the DE rotation by the end of the season.
