Taylor Lewan: View from the next day

After a night’s sleep on the Taylor Lewan pick, it is time for me to expand on the brief thoughts I put up on him when the Titans picked him. 1. This is not a pick for 2014, but that’s not a surprise. One of the few worthwhile things Ruston Webster said before the draft was the need to think about the future. Given the state of the Titans’ depth chart, there was no pick to...

Titans select OT Taylor Lewan with 11th pick

Well, I wasn’t expecting that one. With their own first-round pick, 11th overall, in the 2014 NFL draft, the Tennessee Titans took Michigan offensive tackle Taylor Lewan. Offensive tackle was an obvious need position with David Stewart’s decline in 2013, but after they signed Michael Oher to a big-money free agent deal I thought the chances of them spending a high pick on an...
