Last offseason featured a transformation of the offensive line. Three-fifths of the starters were replaced with Andy Levtire, Chance Warmack and Brian Schwenke. All that remained from before 2012 were veteran bookend tackles Michael Roos and David Stewart.
Roos and Stewart are both on the wrong side of age 30. Last season, the 31-year-old Stewart was constantly fighting injuries and appeared to have lost a step.
The interior is set. The Titans should consider offensive tackle before Roos and Stewart both become ineffective at the same time. This is a position where they could address in free agency. Keep in mind that it often takes offensive linemen (especially rookies) about two seasons to gel. It’s a matter of acting proactively.
Offensive Tackle: Above Average
Offensive Guard, Center: None
