Tennessee Titans offensive predictions: Who are the starters?
By Will Lomas
Offensive line (5)
LT: Dennis Kelly (Note: Taylor Lewan is suspended for the first four games)
-Kelly is a solid OT, while he may be better on the right side he certainly has the skill and the size to be an average left tackle.
LG: Rodger Saffold
-One hiccup, but was outstanding getting to the second level and in run blocking in his first action.
C: Ben Jones
-Quietly having a really good preseason, should be the starting right guard but more on that later.
RT: Jack Conklin
-Another player having a really good preseason, Conklin looks back to his old form.
RG: Kevin Pamphile
So all of this is pretty obvious except for the right guard position, which is why I left it for last.

As I see it there are five possible starters at the position. Aaron Stinnie and Jamil Douglas just aren’t good enough at this point in their careers to start a football game in the regular season.
Nate Davis should have this job wrapped up, but he has been injured so we haven’t even seen him against any real competition this year.
Ben Jones should move to right guard because apparently the Titans coaching staff views Corey Levin as a center only, despite the fact that he has consistently won at both center and guard in the preseason this year.
If the Titans refuse to have both their centers on the field at the same time, then the job will fall to Kevin Pamphile who isn’t bad but he rarely stands out in a positive way.
He needs to stay off the ground and do a better job keeping his balance, but he will do if Ben Jones and Jack Conklin can help elevate his play.
