Titans Agree to Terms With Top Draft Pick Jack Conklin

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The Tennessee Titans have agreed to terms on a deal with offensive tackle Jack Conklin, the eighth overall pick in the draft.

The Titans announced the deal Monday.

The 6-foot-5, 308-pound Conklin started 38 of the 39 games he played, with 35 at left tackle, after walking on at Michigan State. The Titans, who originally held the No. 1 overall draft pick, traded up from No. 15 to select Conklin at No. 8.

Conklin is expected to start at right tackle opposite left tackle Taylor Lewan.

The Titans now have eight of their 10 draft picks under contract, with only linebacker Kevin Dodd, the first of three players drafted in the second round, and safety Kevin Byard, taken in the third round, still unsigned.
