NASHVILLE, Tenn. β€” The Titans selected Auburn cornerback Roger McCreary in the second round of Friday night's NFL Draft. 

McCreary was taken with the 35th overall pick. 

McCreary (6-0, 190) was a first team All-America by The Athletic, Associated Press, and ESPN in 2021, when he was a Bednarik Award semifinalist.

McCreary had 135 career tackles with six interceptions, 135 tackles and 32 pass breakups. 

A former three-star recruit who played his way into some first-round projections by coming back for his senior season, McCreary led the SEC with 14 pass breakups in the regular season β€” just one shy of tying Chris Davis' single-season Auburn record from 2013. McCreary was Pro Football Focus' highest-graded cornerback in the Power Five in the regular season and led the nation in forced incompletions (20).
