With the 22nd pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, the Tennessee Titans have selected cornerback Caleb Farley out of Virginia Tech!

Farley was an all-state quarterback in North Carolina as a high school senior and hoped to play on offense for the Hokies when he enrolled at Tech in January 2017. He wound up at receiver before suffering a knee injury on his first day of practice. Farley moved to defense as a redshirt freshman, starting 12 of 13 games played at cornerback (36 tackles, two interceptions, seven pass breakups). He led the ACC with 16 passes defended as a sophomore, garnering first-team All-ACC accolades despite missing the final two games due to injury (20 tackles, four interceptions in 11 contests). He opted out of the 2020 season, citing concerns about COVID-19 and the motivation to protect his father, Robert, from the virus. Farley’s mother, Robin, passed away in January 2018 after battling breast cancer. Farley underwent a back procedure on March 23, which kept him from working out at Virginia Tech’s March 26 pro day.
