Day One Starter at Right Tackle
There’s been some chatter about the Titans’ first-round draft pick Isaiah Wilson being used at guard, rather than tackle. While a move like that might make sense for a player like Wilson, the Titans would prefer to use his skills to fix the uncertainty at right tackle– and in this dream scenario, that’s where Tennessee decides to use him from opening day.
The Titans got solid guard play from both Nate Davis and especially Roger Saffold as the 2019 season progressed, while their longtime starter at right tackle, Jack Conklin, took his talents to the Cleveland Browns in the offseason. For as solid a depth player as Conklin’s immediate replacement, veteran swing tackle Dennis Kelly is, he has nowhere near the potential that Wilson has at this point in his career.
Wilson started at right tackle for the Georgia Bulldogs for two seasons during his college days, so he is somewhat experienced at the position. The perfect scenario for both him and Tennessee would be that he’s able to pick up where he left off in college, providing an instant improvement over Kelly with the potential to grow into the bookend tackle he was drafted to be as the season progresses.
