The Tennessee Titans stayed in-state to find a wide receiver, selecting Middle Tennessee State wide receiver Tyrone Calico with the 60th pick.
The Titans were in the market for a receiver after losing Kevin Dyson in free agency. They also were looking for more speed at the position, something
that Calico possesses.
Calico moved himself into the second round with his showing at the combine, timing 4.34secs in the 40. He has great size, long arms and excellent
athletic ability, although he didn't play against top competition in college.
In 2000, Calico beat current Washington Redskins cornerback Fred Smoot for two touchdowns in a game against Mississippi State.
He caught 45 passes for 606 yards and four touchdowns last season.
