Posted Apr 29, 2017

Titans select Texas Christian OLB Josh Carraway in 7th round (227th overall) of 2017 NFL Draft.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Titans picked Texas Christian outside linebacker Josh Carraway in the draft, and he’s ready to prove he can get after NFL quarterbacks.

“I bring a lot of speed and versatility,” Carraway said after getting picked on Saturday. “I can play with my hand in the ground, I can play up. I’m one of those guys you don’t have to worry about messing up or getting into trouble.

“I’m very hungry now. I feel like, right now, I want to go and get a lift in, a workout in. I have got a lot to prove but that is what my life has been about. It’s nothing new to me.”

The Titans picked Carraway in the seventh round of the NFL Draft, with the 227th overall pick.

Carraway (6-4, 250) was a first-team All-Big 12 performer in 2016, and earned trips to the Senior Bowl and the NFL Combine. He had three sacks in a game against Kansas, and had eight sacks on the season.

“He played primarily defensive end for TCU,” Titans general manager Jon Robinson said of Carraway. “I think he was All-Conference a couple of years, and had a couple of years with pretty good sack totals. He’ll work at outside linebacker for us. He was another one that we went and worked out in a private setting.”

Carraway said he’s rushed from the left side and right side during his playing career.

He’s looking forward to working under defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau.

“I feel like I am tough and aggressive in my own way,” he said. “A few may say different things about it but I feel like in my way I play with a lot of aggression and a lot of heart. I feel like I can knock people in the mouth too.

“(To make the team) you have got to do special teams. That’s what I am going to focus on, special teams. Learn the playbook and find a role on special teams and work my way to some playing time.”
