Tennessee Titans Pick Arkansas' Sebastian Tretola in 6th Round of NFL Draft

Arkansas' best passing offensive lineman of all time is heading to Nashville.

Sebastian Tretola might be the most well-known of Arkansas' much-hyped offensive line of the last couple of seasons.

Much of that comes from the famous touchdown pass he actually threw on a trick play against UAB in 2014, which kicked off a fun little "Heisman campaign" for him.

But Tretola was hardly just a tick play phenom, he came to Arkansas as a junior college transfer and started for both seasons in Fayetteville, eventually earning the Jacobs Blocking Trophy last fall, which is given to the top offensive lineman in the league.

It didn't all come totally naturally. Tretola came to Arkansas weighing around 370 pounds. He had to lose a lot of weight but was able to do it. He's lost over 50 lbs from the time he started at Arkansas and became a fan favorite.

Arkansas’ starting left guard over the last 23 games, Tretola has graded over 80 percent in 10 of 12 contests this season, while earning SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week on Oct. 5. Over his 25 career games at Arkansas, Tretola has allowed a half-sack to help the Razorbacks lead the SEC in the fewest sacks allowed each of his two seasons.

Congratulations to Sebastian getting drafted by the Titans! Hog fans will be cheering for him.
