The Tennessee Titans used their picks in the second day of the NFL Draft Sunday to add depth at a number of positions.

First, the Titans picked up Virginia Tech safety Vincent Fuller (6-1, 189), who can also play cornerback and could contend for the nickelback spot with choice No. 108 overall.

Second, Tennessee tabbed offensive tackle David Stewart (6-6, 323), a three-year starter at Mississippi State, to compete with Jacob Bell and second-round pick Michael Roos for the vacant right tackle spot.

Tennessee went back to the bolstering its wide receiver pool when it plucked Tulane's Roydell Williams (6-1, 195) late in the fourth round with pick No. 142.

Williams will join Saturday picks Courtney Roby and Brandon Jones in helping add depth at the receiver position.

In round five, the Titans drafted running back Damien Nash (5-9, 218) of Missouri at No. 142 and went back to helping at tackle when the tabbed Texas Tech's David Loper (6-6, 306) at No. 150.

The need for a third tight end was addressed in the sixth round when the Titans selected Bo Scaife (6-2, 249) of Texas.

With their final pick of the draft at No. 218 in the seventh round, Tennessee grabbed cornerback Reynaldo Hill of Florida. The 5-11, 185-pounder ran in the 4.36 range at the Gators pro day to earn a shot.
