Tennessee Titans Make Surprise Selection, Take Star WR Kendall Wright

Tennessee Titans select Kendall Wright, Grade A

Breaking down the Titans' pre-draft visits and workouts

Beyond being first-round picks of the Titans, Jake Locker, Derrick Morgan, and Kenny Britt all had pre-draft workouts and/or visits with the Tennessee Titans. While different teams use visits and workouts for different purposes, this suggests the Titans are at least very amenable to the idea of drafting players they had individual attention on in the pre-draft process.
