NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans will help kick off the third and final day of the NFL draft with the first pick in the fourth round.

If they don't trade it like they did the first pick Friday night.

The Titans have the 100th pick overall to open the fourth round Saturday — their fourth selection this draft. They traded back seven spots in the second adding two more picks from the Giants, and now they head into the final day of the draft with six more picks.

Tennessee has focused on offense with quarterback Marcus Mariota, wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham and tackle Jeremiah Poutasi.

The Titans now will be looking for a running back.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt jokes they need to pick some defensive players to placate defensive coach Dick LeBeau.
