Titans Picks

The Titans own one selection in six of the draft’s seven rounds, including the 11th pick in the first round and the 10th pick in the second round (42nd overall).

They do not have their original third-round pick (77th overall), which was dealt to the San Francisco 49ers during the 2013 draft along the Titans’ 2013 second- and seventh-round picks. With the 2013 second-round pick the Titans received in the trade, they chose University of Tennessee wide receiver Justin Hunter.

The team’s other 2014 selections include overall picks 112 (fourth round), 151 (fifth round), 186 (sixth round) and 228 (seventh round).

This year the Titans did not receive any compensatory draft choices, which are awarded annually by the NFL based on net unrestricted free agency losses in the previous offseason.

The Titans still could use trades to deal or acquire additional picks.
