After trading up in round one to fill their need for an offensive tackle, the Tennessee Titans made the most of the first of their three second round picks by selecting Clemson defensive end Kevin Dodd with the first of those three, No.33 overall in round two of the 2016 NFL Draft.
A late bloomer, Dodd saved perhaps his best performance for last in the Tigers loss to Alabama in the national championship game. He became a dominating rusher in 2015 for Clemson, and dominated against Alabama in the loss.
He was a one year starter for the Tigers and named an honorable mention All-ACC player last year where he recorded 86 tackles, 23/5 for loss and 12 sacks on the season. Dodd ranked second in tackles for loss nationally to his teammate Shaq Lawson.
Dodd saw limited action in the 2012,13 and 14 seasons after spending the 2011 season at Hargrave Military Academy.
Dodd lined up in both a two, and three point stance for the Tigers in 2015, and could be used as a stand up rush end as the Titans initially listed him as a linebacker.
