PRO:
Sen’Derrick Marks is a great athlete who can use his agility and quickness to be a force against both the run and the pass. The 6-foot-2-inch, 306-pounder will be an important contributor in the interior defensive line rotation in 2010.

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS:
• Appeared in nine games at defensive tackle as a rookie and posted 23 tackles, a sack, five quarterback pressures and a pass defensed.
• Collected his first career sack by dropping Matt Hasselbeck for a seven-yard loss in the regular season finale against Seattle (1/3/10).

TITANS TIDBITS:
• Marks’ athleticism also translates to the hardwood. The 6-foot-2-inch, 306-pounder can dunk a basketball. Former Auburn head coach Tommy Tuberville saw him dunk in high school and offered him a football scholarship on the spot.
• Marks is the oldest of eight children, with the youngest being 12 years old. His siblings’ names are Anntranetta, Shamira, Ciera, DeAndre, Alexia, Kenneth Davis Jr. and Lakendra Davis. Most of his brothers and sisters have unique names which have no specific meaning to them. There is no specific meaning behind the name Sen’Derrick either and he often goes by the nickname Sen.
• Marks did a lot of community work with kids in college as a result of his rehabilitation services major. In the future, he wants to start a foundation that mentors juvenile delinquents and people with disabilities by providing them with role models and leadership activities.
• Marks has picked up the game of golf during the past two offseasons. Even though he is right-handed and still has a lot to learn about the sport, he models his game after his favorite player Phil Mickelson.
