Missouri linebacker picked in third round

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Titans continued the Southeastern Conference flavor of their draft by taking Missouri outside linebacker Zaviar Gooden with the final pick of the third round.

The Titans also took Alabama offensive guard Chance Warmack in the first round and Tennessee wide receiver Justin Hunter in the second.

Gooden, the 97th overall pick in the draft, was a team captain his senior year at Missouri and made a total of 226 tackles over his last three seasons. At the NFL Combine, Gooden ran the 40-yard dash in 4.47 seconds, the fastest time of any linebacker at the event.
