Offensive line changes up again
The Tennessee Titans have experimented with a lot of offensive line combinations this preseason, mostly with a revolving door at right guard.
While right guard continued to be unsettled, today’s change had a little bit more intrigue to it.
Fan favorite (alright mostly my personal favorite) backup center Corey Levin took over snaps at center while Ben Jones moved over to right guard. This wasn’t just for a series or two, this was an all day thing:
In my opinion, this is the best scenario for the Tennessee Titans and here is why.
Ben Jones had some issues last year at center, but I suspect he didn’t play completely healthy and that a lot of his issues came from a lack of help on either side. Still, replacing him always seemed like a long shot because the Titans trust his mind and he has great chemistry with the rest of the OL.
So, when you move him to right guard and get the more athletic Corey Levin in at center, you get better at two positions (over last year) and you do it without losing the presence of Ben Jones.
Since no one has established a chemistry with Jack Conklin at RG you don’t have to worry about that being a factor and now you have really athletic trio from LT to C when Taylor Lewan is back which should make runs to that side even more effective.
