How Will OL Look in 2014?

Discussion in 'Tennessee Titans and NFL Talk' started by The Hammer, May 11, 2014.

How do you think the drafting of Taylor Lewan will impact the starting OL in 2014?

  1. No Change. Lewan will ride the pine until there is an injury.

    The poll is based on an expected pre-draft starting group:

    Roos -- Levitre -- Schenke -- Warmack -- Oher

    =====================================================================

    I personally think he plays LG with Levitre moving to center. I think Levitre would be good at center with his quickness. Could also see a situation where Lewan plays RT with Oher moving to LG and Levitre to C.

    Roos is in the final year of his deal and is owed a $6.625 million base salary, all of which the Titans could get out from under by releasing him. Cutting Roos and replacing him with Lewan would only make sense financially. Why the Titans handed RT Michael Oher $9.5 million guaranteed in March is the real question that needs to be asked.

    If lewan starts ar RT we better not have any issues running tight. Schwenke, Warmack, Lewan, and stevens better perform this season!

    Ideally Oher and Lewaan play well enough in training camp that it makes Roos expendable enough to trade/cut which would give us an OL who's oldest starter is 27; it would also let us see if we can get Oher to play to his potential and maybe keep us from having to draft a RT with our 3rd/4th round pick in 2015.

    Being that Bruce Matthews is gone, I expect a big time improvement.

    I'm starting to warm up to the Lewan pick, because I have been envisioning Roos play as of late. Roos was playing with ankle weights last year.

    I think we will have a dominant run blocking OL, but an above average pass protection OL.

    Do you really think Lewan will play LG?

    There's no way. Lewan is just a shade under 6'8. It would be hard for a 6'1 Jake Locker to throw the ball over him.

    I just really fascinated by your thought that they are going to bench Schwenke.

    Why would they do this? He's by far ou best center and has a mean streak as well. Give him a few years and he will be inline with Mawae.

    Yea regardless of the media bs, we made a smart future pick considering Roos started rough last season. He's already on the decline. Lewan adding more youth to an already youthful o line.

    That's what I was thinking. There's no way Lewan will play G. He would be a hell of a pulling guard, but a full time G? Hell no.
