Tennessee Titans Select Arizona Safety Dane Cruikshank

Tennessee Titans Select Arizona Safety Dane Cruikshank”

Will be updated.The Tennessee Titans selected Arizona defensive back Dane Cruikshank in the fifth round and Washington State quarterback Luke Falk in the sixth round on the final day of the National Football League draft.

Cruikshank put himself on the National Football League radar with a standout senior season. Moving from cornerback to the "Spur" safety position, Cruikshank recorded 75 tackles, including 5.5 for losses, five pass breakups, three interceptions and a forced fumble. After waiting four and a third rounds and 151 picks, Cruikshank finally heard his name as the Titans chose him with pick number 152.

A JUCO product, Cruikshank was one of the standouts of the National Football League combine, running a 4.41 40-yard dash. His best position as a pro might be nickel back. No Arizona players were picked in 2017.

The Titans earned a playoff spot as a wild card team last season defeating the Kansas City Chiefs on the road before falling to the New England Patriots in the divisional round. So they have a lot of good players on defense.

Tennessee's current projected starter at strong safety - the position most comparable to Spur - is former Jacksonville second-round pick Johnathan Cyprien.

NFL Draft Scout's Dane Brugler described Falk as a "tough scrambler and will fight for extra yards" who "hits receivers in stride to create catch-and-run opportunities", while he "takes too many hits and appears gun shy after a few pressures".
