2014 NFl Draft: Titans Pick At 11, Select Taylor Lewan

The Ttians have completely rebuilt their tackle position by drafting Taylor Lewan out of Michigan to go along with the signing of Michael Oher. Jake Locker has to be happy as hell to hear it, because he is starting to get the protection he needs to display his full abilities, which we haven't seen to date from him. Lewan is a beast, and shows technique and power. He will need to build up some upper body strength, but he is a nasty, grinding tackle who will definitely be a star. He does have a red flag on him due to character, as he was popped for a substance issue, which involved booze during the off-season. Hardly a time to get yourself in trouble, and he may have fallen out of the top ten based on that. Still, he's a quality tackle, and was my third rated tackle in the draft, the order at that position that he went in.
