NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The Tennessee Titans decided to help protect the King's Throne with their 2nd Round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

North Dakota State offensive lineman Dillon Radunz was drafted 53rd overall by the Titans.

Radunz will come to Nashville to help clear the path for Derrick Henry, as well as protect quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

The Titans drafted offensive lineman Isaiah Wilson with a 1st Round pick last year. An experiment that ended with Wilson already traded from the team.

The Titans traded down in the 3rd Round, sending the 85th pick in a deal with the Green Bay Packers that gave the Titans the 92nd pick and the 135th pick in this year's draft.

Tennessee selected linebacker Monty Rice from Georgia with the 92nd pick. Rice was a Butkus Award finalist last season.

Washington defensive back Elijah Molden was the Titans' final pick of the first three rounds. Molden was the second defensive back taken by the Titans out of their first four picks.

The Titans are scheduled to have six picks on Saturday, which could change based on trades with other teams. So far, the team has drafted wide receiver Dez Fitzpatrick of the University of Louisville 109th overall and outside linebacker Rashad Weaver of the University of Pittsburgh 135th overall.
