NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Titans have agreed to terms with two members of their 2018 draft class – safety Dane Cruikshank and quarterback Luke Falk.
The Titans drafted Cruikshank at pick No. 152 in the fifth round.
Cruikshank (6-1, 209) was a team captain last season. He played in 25 games at Arizona in 2016 and 2017 after initially playing in JUCO, and finished with 108 tackles and five interceptions. Cruikshank tallied 75 tackles, 5.5 tackles for a loss, three interceptions and 1.5 sacks last season at Arizona.
Cruikshank intercepted quarterbacks Sam Darnold (USC) and Josh Rosen (UCLA) – a pair of top 10 draft picks – last season.
Falk was taken with the 199th overall pick – the same spot the Patriots took Tom Brady in the 2000 NFL Draft – in the sixth round of the draft.
A 6-foot-4, 223-pounder, Falk was a three-time All-Pac 12 conference selection at Washington State, where he appeared in 43 games, including 40 as a starter. Falk set a WSU record with 27 wins.
Falk threw for 14,486 yards in his career, including 3,593 yards and 30 touchdowns in 2017, with only 13 interceptions.
First-round pick Rashaan Evans and second-round pick Harold Landry, the other two members of the team’s four-man draft class, remain unsigned.
The Titans rookies will be on the field at Saint Thomas Sports Park for a rookie minicamp over the weekend, beginning on Friday.
