NFL Draft 2012: Tennessee Titans Select Kendall Wright At No. 20

With the 20th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Tennessee Titans have selected Baylor wide receiver Kendall Wright. The Titans' pick mostly falls in line with the projections for Wright, who was expected to go late in the first round or early in the second. Wright's biggest drawback was considered to be his lack of size at 5-foot-10.

Wright was a go-to target for Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III at Baylor in 2011, recording gaudy stats (108 receptions, 1,663 receiving yards, 14 receiving touchdowns and nine 100-yard games). Wright was the team leader in receptions for four consecutive years, setting almost every team record in the process. His 4,004 career receiving yards beat every other Bear in history by well over 1,000 yards.

The Titans' next pick comes in the second round, at No. 52 overall.
