Taylor Lewan, the third-best rated tackle in the draft, plummeted to the Tennessee Titans at No. 11. Everything had to fall in the right place for Lewan to fall to Tennessee and it happened, so what next? Michael Roos and Michael Oher seem to have the left and right tackle positions respectively locked down. Lewan will have his shot during camp and throughout the regular season, but it’s more conceivable to see Roos depart after the upcoming season and the rookie step into the left tackle spot next season. With all of that in mind, it’s interesting to see ESPN’s Field Yates discussing the selection in a recent Insider piece: “Big fan of the Lewan pick,” Yates said. “The smart organizations do not overdraft. It cannot be just about need or just about value or just about the board. Each decision has to be made individually and for me, at No. 11, if you have a player that was fifth or sixth on your board, I have no problem taking him. A year from now, they might have one of the six or seven best young left tackles in the league.” If Lewan does, Tennessee could have quite the young core of offensive linemen, adding him next to Andy Levitre, Chance Warmack, Brian Schwenke and Michael Oher. That’s a pretty solid way to keep Jake Locker upright.
