NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Titans have selected wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham of Missouri in the second round, giving their top pick quarterback Marcus Mariota another target on offense.

The Titans started Friday night with the 33rd pick overall and the first in the second round. They traded down seven spots to No. 40 to take Green-Beckham, picking up the No. 108 pick in the fourth round and No. 245 in the seventh in the deal.

The 6-foot-5 Green-Beckham was dismissed from Missouri after several run-ins with the law during his two years at the school.

He enrolled at Oklahoma in 2014 only to have a waiver to play immediately dismissed by the NCAA, and the 6-foot-5, 237-pound receiver never played at Oklahoma because of transfer rules.
