Biography

 
PRO: The Titans selected Kevin Dodd in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft.  The 6-foot-5-inch, 277-pounder transitioned to a 3-4 outside linebacker with the Titans after playing defensive end at Clemson.  He appeared in nine games with one start as a rookie.  In college, Dodd played behind pro talent in his first three seasons before bursting on the scene as a redshirt junior in 2015.  In his final collegiate campaign the Greenville, S.C., native tallied 12 sacks and 23.5 stops for loss.

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS:  
•    Dodd appeared in nine games as a rookie in 2016, tallying his first career start and first career sack at Detroit on Sept. 18.
•    Dodd enjoyed a stellar junior campaign at Clemson when he started all 15 games, ranked second in the nation with 23.5 tackles for loss and finished in the top 10 nationally with 12 sacks.
•    Dodd had a spectacular showing in the National Championship Game against Alabama when he produced a career-high five tackles for loss and three sacks, both of which set Clemson single-game postseason records.

TITANS TIDBITS:  
•    Dodd attended the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft in Chicago.  After not being selected he returned home, and when the second round started he got the call from the Titans on a car ride to dinner with friends.  Dodd states not being selected in the first round will serve as motivation during his career.
•    Dodd says that his grandmother Mamae Charles served as an inspiration in his life and her guidance in the early years helped him reach his football dreams.  She passed away when he was in sixth grade and to this day he plays to honor her life.
