Selection: Tennessee Titans select Michigan State OT Jack Conklin

Analysis: Many thought that the Titans might be moving up to take Ole Miss star Laremy Tunsil, but given the controversy swirling about the former Rebel, the franchise went in a different direction. Conklin, who declared for the draft after his junior year, appears to be a safer bet.

Conklin, at 6-foot-6, 310 pounds, is a monster, and should immediately help a team that finished 25th in rushing yards in 2015. 

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are now on the clock.
