Titans Pick UConn CB Wreh-Wilson In 3rd Round

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - After signing a pair of veteran safeties in free agency, the Tennessee Titans have continued to retool their secondary by drafting Connecticut cornerback Blidi Bertrard Wreh-Wilson in the third round.

Wreh-Wilson, a former basketball and soccer player, didn't take up football until his senior year in high school. He went on to become a team captain and all-Big East performer at Connecticut.

The Titans hope he can help improve a defense that gave up 471 points last season, the most in franchise history.

They already boosted their secondary this offseason by signing free-agent safeties Bernard Pollard and George Wilson.

Wreh-Wilson was the first pick the Titans used on defense. They had selected Alabama guard Chance Warmack in the first round and Tennessee wide receiver Justin Hunter in the second round.
