The Tennessee Titans have a left tackle…or so we thought.

I am not ready to give up on Taylor Lewan yet, but man he has had a rough year. I would argue that the sophomore slump is a real thing and that his shoulder injury is worse than we know however he is making a lot of bad mental mistakes that hurt his cause.

If Tunsil is available then the Titans have to think about it. From a historical standpoint your best run blocker is your right tackle while your most agile blocker is your left tackle. Both Tunsil and Lewan have agility and aggression in the running game, so the Titans could figure out which tackle fits best where and go from there.

I think that this is the “safe” pick, not that that tackles are a particularly bust-proof pick, but that this is a position that clearly needs addressing. There aren’t a lot of talented tackles coming out of this draft and hoping to get one in round two is risky. Not only that, but it robs you of one of the best value picks in the draft if you are forced to skip on someone like a Corey Coleman or Josh Doctson if they fall out of round one.
