Titans select running back David Cobb of Minnesota at 138
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Titans have selected the running back they said they wanted out of the final day of the NFL draft in David Cobb of Minnesota.
The Titans picked Cobb at No. 138 overall Saturday in the fifth round.
The 5-foot-11, 229-pound Cobb set a single-season record at Minnesota last year running for 1,626 yards and averaged 5.2 yards per carry with 13 touchdowns. He ran for a career-high 220 yards against Middle Tennessee on Sept. 6, 2014 and had seven 100-yard games last season.
The Titans got to see Cobb up close coaching him with the North squad at the Senior Bowl in late January.
They drafted Bishop Sankey in the second round last year, but they ranked 26th in the NFL averaging 90.4 yards rushing per game.
