In the third round, the Titans addressed one of their biggest needs heading into the 2019 NFL Draft.

Tennessee selected Charlotte offensive lineman Nate Davis with the 82nd overall pick. Titans defensive tackle Jurrell Casey announced the pick on the main stage on Lower Broadway.

The 6-foot-3, 316-pound Davis said he hopes to earn the starting role at right guard, where the Titans have an opening after releasing Josh Kline and opting not to bring back Quinton Spain earlier this offseason.

“That’s my goal, to come in here and earn the respect in the locker room, the older guys and the vets,” Davis said. “I just have to do what I do and hopefully I can earn that spot.”

Davis, who was invited to both the Senior Bowl and NFL Combine, was a four-year starter at Charlotte and made 37 career starts over a 40-game career. He played his first three collegiate seasons at right guard before transitioning to tackle as a senior.

The Titans hosted Davis on a pre-draft visit, and general manager Jon Robinson said he liked what he saw in the offensive lineman.

“He’ll come in here and go in there with the line room and get to work,” Robinson said. “It’s all about competition. I’m not anointing anybody. I’m just excited to get him in here and watch him go after it.”
