NASHVILLE - The Titans have agreed to terms with defensive back Elijah Molden.

Molden, who played at the University of Washington, was selected in the third round (100th overall) of the NFL Draft.

Molden (5-10, 195) earned second team All Pac-12 Conference honors for the Huskies in 2020. He was also named second‐team All‐American by Pro Football Focus, which also named him Pac‐12 Player of the Year. He was in on 26 tackles and he also tallied an interception in 2020.

Molden, who played in the slot and in the safety in college, was named first team All Pac-12 in 2019 after recording 79 tackles, 5 ½ tackles for a loss, 17 passes defensed, four interceptions and three forced fumbles.

Molden's father, Alex, played at Oregon, and he was the 11th overall pick of the New Orleans Saints in 1996. Alex Molden played eight seasons in the NFL with the Saints, Chargers and Lions.

Of the team's eight draft picks, only Georgia linebacker Monty Rice remains unsigned.
