Projected 53 Man Roster for the 2017 Tennessee Titans
By Luke Worsham
21. Quinton Spain: In his second year as a starter on the Titans’ offensive line, Spain improved a great deal and earned a very respectable grade from Pro Football Focus. A mauler whose playing style is ideal for the Titans’ offense, Spain will need to hold off 2016 sixth round pick Sebastian Tretola in camp if he wants to keep his starting spot.
22. Josh Kline: When you finish a season with the worst record in the NFL, you get the first overall selection in the ensuing draft and top waiver priority. Jon Robinson took advantage of the latter when he claimed the contract of Kline, who had been released by the New England Patriots. Kline entered the starting lineup after an injury to Chance Warmack and never looked back, helping the Titans to have one of football’s best offensive lines in 2016. If he has another solid season in 2017, it could warrant the Titans giving him a long term contract.
23. Sebastian Tretola: A sixth round pick in 2016, Tretola was a healthy scratch for most of his rookie season. Coming out of Arkansas, he was labeled as a physically imposing run blocker with sloppy technique and average pass protection skills. He will be given a chance to compete for a starting spot on the offensive line in Training Camp, but he’ll have to show better footwork in order to accomplish that.
24. Corey Levin (R): Much like fellow draftee Brad Seaton, Levin was a physically imposing “phone booth” player in college who could struggle with the transition to the pro game. He too will be a backup and developmental player.
