Jeremiah Poutasi cracking the lineup?


The Tennessee Titans have an issue at right tackle and maybe they have found the solution in the 2015 NFL Draft.

If not, at least they have had some good competition so far.

After a very quiet offseason for Jeremiah Poutasi, it looks like the Tennessee Titans think he is at least ready for a solid look.

    However, later in the day it was Jeremiah Poutasi that was playing at right tackle:

    Honestly, I think the right tackle position should break down like this. If Byron Bell offers consistent protection (even if he is underwhelming at time) you have to start him. He is a veteran that will be able to communicate calls and read defenses while not panicking.

    The only way Jeremiah Poutasi can get a start is if he is clearly better than Byron Bell. Now, to be fair that could easily happen. Poutasi has concrete hands that physically hurt defensive players when he hits them and he has the tendency to be able to hold without getting called (like David Stewart used to).

    This spits in the face on historical theory because the idea has always been that when they are even you start the younger guy because he has more upside. However, with so many of the other pieces of the offense poised to be good, you don’t need to play a boom-or-bust player there especially when Marcus Mariota is really the key to this offense.
