Sebastian Tretola became a Titans when the team selected him in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft.

The Tennessee Titans continued the revamping of their offensive line with the addition of Arkansas guard Sebastian Tretola on Saturday in the sixth round.

Tennessee Titans general manager Jon Robinson has repeatedly stated that the new Titans would be a tough, physical team and to help the transformation he and head coach Mike Mularkey added another offensive lineman to the roster during Saturday's sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft.

Sebastian Tretola (6'4" 313) out of the University of Arkansas is considered a mauler with a mean streak who plays in a phone booth and is extremely strong (22 reps of 225) and surprisingly fast for a man his size.

It was an unusual path for Tretola to reach Arkansas and the SEC as his career began at Nevada, then transferring to Iowa Western Community College following his redshirt sophomore season.     

Tretola selected the Razorbacks following the 2013 season at Iowa Western where he was rated as a four-star prospect by 247 Sports and the No. 1 junior college prospect in Iowa and the No. 8 juco offensive tackle in the country. Along with Arkansas, Tretola received offers from Oklahoma, Florida, Texas Tech, TCU and South Florida.

As a senior for the Razorbacks, Tretola earned preseason first team All-SEC honors from both ESPN and Athlons Sports.

He is best known for throwing a touchdown pass in a field goal in a 2014 game. His teammates launched a faux Heisman campaign following that game.
