The Tennessee Titans landed two players in the fourth round of the 2021 NFL draft in wide receiver Dez Fitzpatrick out of Louisville (No. 109 overall) and Pittsburgh edge rusher Rashad Weaver (No. 135 overall).
In order to draft Fitzpatrick, the Titans moved up via a trade with the Carolina Panthers that saw Tennessee send picks 126, 166, and 232.
Coming into this offseason, two of the Titans’ biggest needs were EDGE and wide receiver, so it comes as no surprise that general manager Jon Robinson addressed both in this year’s draft.
Fitzpatrick will compete for targets in what is still a fairly thin wide receivers room in Tennessee, while Weaver figures to be a rotational player in his first year with the upside to be an every-down player in the years ahead.
Shortly after being drafted, both players spoke to the media via Zoom for the first time as Titans. Here’s a look at what they had to say.
