Nebraska safety Daimion Stafford becomes third defensive back to get drafted by Titans

The Tennessee Titans continue to add depth to their secondary by drafting Nebraska safety Daimion Stafford in the seventh round.

Stafford, the 248th overall pick in the draft, was the third defensive back selected by Tennessee. The Titans took Connecticut cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson in the third round and Nevada cornerback Khalid Wooten in the sixth.

Stafford transferred to Nebraska from Chaffey College in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. He had 96 tackles and four interceptions last year to earn first-team all-Big Ten honors from the media. He was a second-team all-Big Ten pick by the league's coaches.

Earlier in the day, the Titans selected California guard/center Brian Schwenke in the fourth round, LSU defensive end Lavar Edwards in the fifth round and Wooten in the sixth.
