Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – The Tennessee Titans traded with the Cleveland Browns up to the No. 8th overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft to take Michigan State Offensive Tackle Jack Conklin. The Titans traded the No. 15 overall pick, a 3rd round pick and a 2nd round pick in 2017 to the Browns.

The 6’6″, 308 pound Conklin ran a 5.0 second 40 yard dash in the NFL Combine. He has a scrappy player with good core strength, power in his hands and locks up defenders making it hard for them to get around him.
