This won’t be a bloated series, this will just be a solid depth chart of who deserves to be ranked where, and what the Tennessee Titans may do at that position going forward.
This will focus on the players on the offensive line.
LT: Taylor Lewan
LG: Byron Bell
C: Brian Schwenke
RG: Chance Warmack
RT: Jeremiah Poutasi
-Starting from left to right, Taylor Lewan is probably one of if not the best left tackle taken since Tyron Smith in the 2011 NFL Draft. He is a stud. He can hang with speed rushers and he is physical and ruthless in run blocked grabbing whatever he has to as long as he gets his job done. He is the clear leader on the offensive line, and could be the vocal leader of the entire team soon enough.
-Byron Bell has been a nice surprise and looks a lot better at left guard than he did at right tackle. Bell is a physical presence and he and Lewan will be a nice tandem to run behind.
-Brian Schwenke is where the line starts to get bad. He gets bulled over by power rushers, but he does seal speed rushers pretty well. He needs to get more sand in his shorts and be able to anchor against power rushers in the future.
-Chance Warmack has a lot of potential, but he really needs to pick up his feet and move quicker. Speaking of his feet, he really doesn’t look technically sound in his footwork and he still has a lot of room to grow.
-Jeremiah Poutasi is a fun player to watch right now. In back to back weeks against Chris Long and Justin Houston he has really only surrendered one sack and that was on a role out. He looks powerful in the running game and not as inept at setting up in pass protection as I expected him to be.
