Titans draft WR Kendall Wright of Baylor at No. 20

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Titans have selected wide receiver Kendall Wright of Baylor with the No. 20 pick overall.

Wright becomes an extra target for either Matt Hasselbeck or Jake Locker with Kenny Britt coming off a torn right ACL.

Wright is just the fourth receiver taken by this franchise in the first round but the second in four years. Britt was their first-round pick in 2009.

The Titans got career seasons out of receivers Nate Washington, Damian Williams and Lavelle Hawkins after Britt was sidelined. But the 5-foot-10, 196-pound Wright caught 108 passes for 1,663 yards working with Robert Griffin III at Baylor last season, and he was timed at 4.46 seconds in the 40-yard dash.

Tennessee still needs help for a pass rush ranked next to last in 2011.
