The Tennessee Titans used the #2 pick in this year’s NFL draft to select former Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota.

The dynamic Hawaiian stands 6 feet 4 inches tall and weighs 222 pounds.

The 2014 Heisman Trophy winner, Mariota, was thought to be coveted by former coach Chip Kelly and the Philadelphia Eagles, among other teams.

But in the end, Tennessee opted to keep the 21-year-old star for themselves.

Marcus Mariota put up unbelievable numbers with the Oregon Ducks last season, throwing for 4,454 yards and 42 touchdowns.

The Titans are hopeful that Mariota can find similar success with their receiving core, which includes Nate Washington, Justin Hunter and Kendall Wright.
