Following the release of Chris Johnson, general manager Ruston Webster acknowledged the Tennessee Titans will "definitely" look to select a running back in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Titans fans shouldn't expect that draft pick to come in the first round.

Although coach Ken Whisenhunt echoed Webster's sentiment that the backfield is a need area, he told NFL Media's Randy Moss on Wednesday that the Titans will not select a running back at No. 11 overall.

Given the diminishing importance of the position and the lack of an Adrian Peterson-level talent in this year's draft class, a second- or third-day pick is more realistic.

Any rookie would be added to an underwhelming mix that includes Shonn Greene, Dexter McCluster and Jackie Battle.
