NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans have added another offensive weapon by selecting Mississippi wide receiver A.J. Brown in the second round with the 51st overall pick in the draft.

Brown set Ole Miss single-season records in catches (85) and yards receiving (1,320) while earning Associated Press All-America third-team honors last season. The 6-foot Brown departed Ole Miss with a school-record 2,984 career yards receiving.

Tennessee needed to spend the second round of the draft boosting an offense that scored just 19.4 points per game last season. The Titans used their first-round pick Thursday on Mississippi State defensive tackle Jeffery Simmons and focused on defense in their 2018 draft.

The only offensive player Tennessee drafted last year was Washington State quarterback Luke Falk, who went in the sixth round and is no longer on the Titans' roster.

Tennessee also has the 82nd overall pick later Friday.
