NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP)

The Tennessee Titans have agreed to terms with fifth-round draft pick Taylor Thompson and seventh-round selection Scott Solomon.

The Titans moved up 10 spots to pick Thompson as a tight end, even though he started 43 straight games as a defensive end at SMU. Thompson had 18 sacks and 139 tackles, but he is switching positions back to his high school position.

Solomon played four years at defensive end at Rice with 24 career sacks.

Receiver Kendall Wright, the Titans' first-round selection, is the only draft pick not yet signed.
