PRO: The Titans selected Racey McMath with the 205th overall pick in the sixth round of the 2021 NFL Draft. The 6-foot-3 inch, 217-pound wide receiver possesses tremendous size and explosion for the position. He gained valuable experience as a special teams standout during his career at Louisiana State University, which allows him to compete immediately for a spot on the gameday roster. A native of New Orleans, La., he spent four seasons at LSU, appearing in 34 total games with six starts. He was a key contributor during the Tigers' 2019 national championship campaign.
• McMath's roommate at Louisiana State in 2019 was current Titans cornerback Kristian Fulton.
• After he was drafted, McMath listed wide receiver Julio Jones as his football role model. Less than two weeks later, the two became teammates when the Titans traded with the Atlanta Falcons to acquire Jones.
• His parents named him Racey due to the fact that during his mom's pregnancy, he never stayed still. "It felt like he was just racing in my stomach," said his mom, Pam, "so we said, 'OK, that's going to be his name—let's call him Racey.'"
