CB Kalan Reed of the Titans, the final pick in the draft, lived in Nashville for three years as a little kid. From age 3 to 6, he estimates. It's where he started playing sports. As a member of the Flatrock Vols football team, he thinks he played against Jalen Ramsey and he knows he played at halftime of a Titans game at what is now Nissan Stadium.


Highlights: Kalan Reed

With the Mr. Irrelevant pick, the Titans nabbed another cornerback, taking the Southern Miss product. Check out some of Reed's best highlights.

Kalan Reed showed great athleticism at his pro day with a sub-4.4 40 time. He also has strong ball skills that allowed him to get his hands on more than 20 percent of his targeted passes, one of the best rates in the class. PFF's most underrated prospects (Insider)

Kalan Reed deserves more draft love

The top of the draft has plenty of cornerback options -- but Reed is a mid-round sleeper. He played a lot of off coverage for Southern Miss, so in the right scheme, he could fit in as a playmaker in zone coverage. Most underrated NFL draft prospects (Insider)
