NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Titans were wheeling and dealing during the first two days of the NFL Draft, but on Saturday, the two-toned-blue decided to sit back and wait... Thursday and Friday's trades left them with only two picks on day three.
In round five, the Titans selected safety Dane Cruikshank (Pronounced Crook-Shank) out of Arizona. Cruikshank is 6'1", 209 pounds. Last season, he started all 13 games, posting 75 tackles, 5.5 for loss, and 1.5 sacks. Scouts say he's a hard hitter who needs to be more consistent in coverage.
With their final pick in the sixth round, the Titans added quarterback depth as they selected Luke Falk out of Washington State. Falk is 6'4" and 215 pounds. Despite getting benched during parts of his senior season, Falk still completed 67 percent of his passes for just under 36-hundred yards, 30 touchdowns.
Falk will battle Blaine Gabbert to be the Titans backup quarterback behind Marcus Mariota.
So the Titans wound up selecting just four players total in this year's draft, but both GM Jon Robinson and Head Coach Mike Vrabel believe the current roster is so strong, not much draft help was needed.
