The Tennessee Titans have traded up to the 109th pick to open day three of the 2021 NFL Draft. With the pick, the Titans selected wide receiver Dez Fitzpatrick out of Louisville.

Jon Robinson gave up picks 126, 166 and 232 to move up.

Fitzpatrick stands in at 6-2, 210 pounds and played for four seasons with the Cardinals. As a freshman back in 2017, Fitzpatrick put up 699 yards and nine touchdowns, exploding onto the scene. He took a step back as a sophomore, before producing another 600 yard season as a junior.

His best season came as a senior, where he caught 43 passes for 833 yards and three scores. Fitzpatrick averaged 19.4 yards per catch in 2020.

He now joins the Titans, who desperately needed another body or two in that room. A.J. Brown is the clear alpha after Corey Davis and Adam Humphries moved on. Josh Reynolds is set to be the No. 2, while Fitzpatrick will have a chance to see plenty of snaps as a rookie this fall.

The Titans will be back on the clock shortly with pick No. 135.
