OT Andrew Thomas, Georgia
The Titans let incumbent starter Jack Conklin walk in free agency after drafting him in 2016. General Manager Jon Robinson’s first pick for the Titans involved trading up to 8 in the first round to grab Conklin over future highest-paid offensive tackle in the game Laremy Tunsil (though you could argue that he doesn’t deserve anything close to that number).
The Titans are back in the market for a right tackle to help anchor the line across from Taylor Lewan after choosing Dennis Kelly at a discounted rate over Conklin. This gamble gave the Titans cap space to make another move in free agency if they choose to do so.
This draft has a few first round caliber tackles, but Andrew Thomas might be the best fit for the team because he is a three-year starter for the Bulldogs and can play on either side of the line.
The 2019 Unanimous All-American is the best run-blocking tackle on the market and his finesse in the passing game should get more credit, that sounds an awful lot like the guy they are trying to replace in Jack Conklin.
With such a stacked group of offensive tackles, the Titans won’t have to reach too far to land Thomas, if they have to reach at all. The Titans might need to jump only a couple of spots to grab him. However, if the tackles start going off the board early, the Titans will need to move up to grab him.
