Sean Harlow, IOL
I am really interested to see how sold the Tennessee Titans really are on Corey Levin as the backup center/starter of the future.
Whenever I have watched Levin take snaps I have always been very impressed with what he has done. However, if that isn’t what the coaching staff sees in Levin the Harlow is very intriguing to me.
Coming out of the 2017 NFL Draft, his explosion looked great with him testing in the 73rd percentile or higher in his explosion drills (broad jump, vertical jump, 40-yard dash) among interior offensive line prospects.
Could the Tennessee Titans see him as a future center that could help handle the mauling nose tackles that the line has struggled with in recent history? Dane Bruglar had this to say in his 2017 NFL Draft guide:
"Overall, Harlow has the skill-set that is best suited for guard or center where his raw power and second-effort blocking can be utilized in a smaller square – can provide valuable interior depth on a NFL roster with some added seasoning."
As long as Harlow can get to the second level quickly enough and get on the right side of defensive tackles on outside zone plays he can do everything they need him to as a center. More than that, if he really is someone who can overpower defenders and stay on blocks thanks to his effort he should do a great job creating cutback lanes even if he doesn’t originally get his job done.
