NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans have selected tackle Jeremiah Poutasi of Utah with their third round draft pick, Tennessee's third straight pick on offense to open the 2015 draft.

The Titans picked the 6-foot-5, 338-pound Poutasi with the 66th selection overall and the second in the third round.

Tennessee already picked quarterback Marcus Mariota of Oregon at No. 2 overall and receiver Dorial Green-Beckham in the second round after trading down. Poutasi started 35 of his 37 games at Utah and declared for the draft after his junior season.

He played left tackle at Utah, but the Titans need a right tackle after cutting Michael Oher in February.
