The Tennessee Titans have selected Michigan State left tackle Jack Conklin with the No. 8 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.

The 6-foot-6, 325-pound junior was a First-Team All Big Ten and First-Team All American in 2015.

He started in 38 of his 39 career games, 35 of which were at left tackle with three at right tackle. In that time, he had more than 235 knockdowns.

The Titans traded picks with the Cleveland Browns to move up to the No. 8 spot to get Conklin.

Conklin will help a Titans offensive that ranked 30th in total offense last season.
