Winner: Corey Levin‘s opportunity to start
All of the previous offensive line critiques come with a giant asterisk. Whether he is playing against starters or backups, Corey Levin has looked very good on the interior offensive line.
Will that continue if he was put with the starters? I don’t know, but I can tell you that all of the evidence and tape we have on Kevin Pamphile, Corey Levin, Jamil Douglas, and Aaron Stinnie makes one thing very clear: Levin is far and away the best of that group.

Mike Vrabel seemed to close the door on the possibility of Levin making his way up to the starting unit when he was asked last week about Levin’s play. Vrabel praised him, but said that he was a center and that when the team moved him to play some guard in the preseason game against the New England Patriots it was more about finding out what he could do rather than actually having him compete for a starting spot.
However, that changed today when Vrabel was asked about whether or not a combination of Corey Levin and Ben Jones both starting for the Titans offensive would give them their best five on the OL.
While Vrabel basically gave the coachspeak answer of always looking to find the best combinations, it seems to be a departure from what he said last week about Levin really being a center only.
Now, while Levin may start at center and Jones could start at right guard, either way there is no denying that from what we have all see Levin is one of the five best linemen eligible to play in Week 1.
