Round 3: Max Tuerk C, USC
Why the Tennessee Titans should draft him:
Andy Gallik doesn’t look like he is going to pan out, and right now you can not feel comfortable with Brian Schwenke as the starting center.

Max Tuerk is an aggressive center who is not only quick, but very big. He is 6’6″, agile, strong, played for a big time school, and is a team captain, what box doesn’t he check off?
This team would look like this from a pure size perspective next year if the Titans take Tuerk:
LT: 6’7″ 309 lb. (Lewan)
LG: 6’6″ 335 lb. (Poutasi)
C: 6’6″ 285 lb. (Tuerk)
RG: 6’2″ 323 lb. (Warmack)
RT: 6’5″ 340 lb. (Bell)
That ends up being an average size of 6’5″+ 318 lb. per person. That is a huge line, and more than enough to get the power game going with a coach like Hue Jackson.
Why the Tennessee Titans might take someone else:
Landon Turner and Pat Elflein are both still on the board and Tennessee Titans still could use some help inside if they aren’t comfortable with Poutasi at guard by the time the offseason rolls around.
