The wait is finally over, and former WSU quarterback Luke Falk will be heading to Tennessee.

After two days filled with anticipation, Falk finally heard his name called on day three of the 2018 NFL Draft.

In an interview with 710 ESPN Seattle earlier this week, Falk said he thought he would be a second-round pick, maybe even a late-first round pick.

It didn’t go quite as he predicted, but with the 199th overall selection of the 2018 NFL Draft the Tennessee Titans selected Falk.

Falk will join a quarterback room with fellow Pac-12 standout Marcus Mariota who enters his fourth season as the starting quarterback for the Titans.
