Titans 2020 Draft Board
PRO: The Titans selected Caleb Farley with the 22nd overall pick in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft. The 6-foot-2 inch, 197-pound defender possesses a rare combination of size and speed for an athlete at his position. The Maiden, N.C., native only began playing cornerback as a redshirt freshman at Virginia Tech after switching from wide receiver. He took to his new position quickly, intercepting six passes in 24 games with the Hokies.
• In 2019, Farley's final season at Virginia Tech, he was named first team All-ACC after he led the conference with 16 passes defensed. His four interceptions tied for second place in the conference.
• Farley intercepted two passes in his first collegiate game-and his first game ever playing cornerback-at Florida State on Sept. 3, 2018.
• Farley credits his late mother, Robin Farley, for instilling in him the faith that has carried him through hard times. Robin lost her life to breast cancer on Jan. 2, 2018, but not before providing him lessons that continue to instruct his life. "She filled my heart with the love of God," Caleb says, "and that's why I am where I am today."
• Growing up he was a big fan of boxer Floyd Mayweather and made it a point to watch all of Mayweather's fights.
• Farley was the third Virginia Tech cornerback selected in the first round in the NFL's "common draft" era (since 1967), joining DeAngelo Hall (2004) and Kyle Fuller (2014). At the age of nine, he met Hall at a youth track-and-field event and got Hall to sign one of the medals he won. He still has the memento.
• Farley is a movie buff. His favorites include "Braveheart," "Troy" and "The Count of Monte Cristo."
• The Maiden, N.C., native was selected by the Titans in the first round (22nd overall) of the 2021 NFL Draft.
