Nevada's Wooten picked by Titans

The Titans drafted Khalid Wooten, a cornerback from Nevada, in the sixth round at No. 202 overall.

Wooten, 5-11, 210 pounds, ran a 4.43 at the Combine and comes to Tennessee with the chance to compete as a backup corner behind starters Jason McCourty and Alterraun Verner, with third-round pick Blidi Wreh-Wilson in the mix there as well.

The Titans also have Tommie Campbell and Coty Sensabaugh available as corners.

Wooten fits the mold of cornerback the Titans are looking for, wanting to play more press coverage on receivers.

“It helps me a lot. They tend to have me as a big corner and I can manhandle the receivers,” Wooten said.

Wooten's made a pre-draft visit to the Titans, a trip that proved to be his only visit before the draft to any team.

“That was my one and only,” he said of the visit.

Wooten also worked as a return man and led the Mountain West with a 15.1 yard average per punt return.
