The only position Titans rookie Taylor Lewan has ever played in his life is left tackle. Well that is all about to change.
Lewan has been working as the 1st team left guard early in training camp, as the current starting left guard, Andy Levitre, is recovering from an appendectomy. Lewan has also seen action at both tackle positions. The Titans coaching staff is asking a lot from the rookie tackle. Having him play along the entire offensive line this early has its pros and cons. On one hand, Lewan is gaining valuable experience, and he is becoming more versatile by the day. On the other hand, asking Lewan to learn multiple positions could stunt his growth at the natural tackle spot, which could deter his confidence in his young career.
Ultimately, I think this is a great idea. If he can become a productive player at several different positions, the Titans could be in good shape along the offensive line even with an unforeseen injury occurring. Do you think Taylor Lewan’s versatility being tested this early in his career is a good thing for him and the Titans? Let us know in the comments section below.
