PHILADELPHIA, Pa. - With the 217th overall pick in the NFL Draft, the Tennessee Titans selected University of Tennessee at Chattanooga senior offensive lineman Corey Levin. Levin's selection gives the Southern Conference at least one NFL draft pick each year dating back to 2005.
Levin was taken with the 34th pick in the sixth round, becoming the first Southern Conference player to be taken in the sixth round since Appalachian State linebacker D.J. Smith in 2011 (Green Bay).
One of the top offensive lineman in the Football Championship Subdivision, Levin is a two-time winner of the Jacobs Blocking Award, given to the top offensive lineman in the SoCon. He was a four-year starter at UTC and a three-time All-American.
This is the fourth UTC student-athlete selected in the draft since 2011. Other recent draft picks for the Mocs include Davis Tull to New Orleans in the fifth round (148) in 2015, B.J. Coleman in the seventh round (243) to Green Bay in 2012, and Buster Skrine to Cleveland in the fifth round (137) in 2011.
