    What a total transformation the Titans FO have done to turn around their most glaring weakness last year.

    Not a sexy position to talk about and wont sell any jerseys but this is where you need to start. Especially when you have a young inconsistent QB and the teams best offensive weapon is a RB. You get them help.

    Overpaid or not, enter Andy Levitre from the Bills who graded out as the NFL's top Guard in 2012, will anchor the line for years and should hopefully finally give the Titans a consistent PRO BOWLER!

    The left side of the Titan's line is set for at least the next 3 years or more. Michael Roos still has energy left in the tank and will continue to protect Lockers blind side. Levitre slides in next to Roos as the new LG.

    The right side of the line is just as solid. "Big Country" David Stewart has remained the Titans RT and excusing last year for him and Roos, both should remain solid on the corners especially with a lot more help surrounding them. Titans 1st RD Draft Pick Chance Warmack should start immediently next to Big Country as the new starting RG for years to come.

    Titans all of the sudden have 3 or more solid options at Center, more importantly none include Amano!

    Having just resigned Fernando Velasco who could play either Center or Guard, picking up former 1st RD draft pick Chris Spencer and now a solid addition in the 4th RD Brian Schwenke who could start as backup depth and hopefully push for the starting gig in 2014-15ish.

    Then also dont forget the good depth add of Guard Rob Turner.

    What a change and the obvious statement Titan fans are continually saying; Locker and CJ no longer have any excuses. Munchak and Matthews 2 HOF Linemen have their road-graders in place now for years to come.

    Just look at this Brian Schwenke kid. He just looks like a true Center. I am digging the long-hair, hand in the dirt, anchor for our line. Sort of reminds me of former Houston Oiler great Center, Mark Stepnoski (lets hope).

    sounds like there is a solid commitment to the run game for sure. Get Locker some support and see how it plays out

    Last year we all knew that OL was our weak link yet the boys in the FO ignored it and it bit us in the ass. They knew they had to address it and give them credit because they went all out. Love what they've done to turn things around.

    Hopefully it will only be a matter of time that Amano will be cut.

    That's it. I was wondering why this kid seemed so familiar.

    Top 5 OL again?

    I think so. Next year we'll be looking at OTs in the draft.
