Titans wear Pads on Day 3 of Training Camp, Mariota continues to impress

        Marcus Mariota continued to impress on day three of training camp Sunday when the team practiced in pads for the first time. The Heisman winner was poised in the pocket completing 12 of 18 passes. 

        The rookie QB has gone three straight practices without throwing an interception. Something that is reflective of his time at Oregon. 

Mariota's college interception rate was just 1.2%.

        The Titans' second overall pick has been doing a great job protecting the football and his work from the pocket is improving.  "It great to see him stay in there  It's great that he has that confidence but really what stands out is that he sees things down the field and throw it accurately.  That's a great quality," said Titans Head Coach Ken Whisenhunt.   "I thought it went well.  You know a couple of throws here and there.  You just gotta get used to here again guys kind of being around your feet and getting knocked around a little bit.  As the day went on I thought I got better at that and it went well, " said Mariota.

       The Titans will be in pads again Monday night before their first day off of camp Tuesday.
