Titans’ OL Isaiah Wilson vs Broncos’ DL McTelvin Agim
Let’s just pretend for a minute, because we know that Dennis Kelly is likely to get the nod at right tackle. If he doesn’t, then it is because Jon Robinson or Amy Adams Strunk are making a rare push to see their first-round pick as quickly as possible.
What if the Titans decide to just put out a lineup to be as big as possible and they put first-round rookie Isaiah Wilson in, but he plays at guard or at tackle but inside in a version of the Titans 3 offensive formation that they used to run with Taylor Lewan, Jack Conklin and Dennis Kelly.

The former Georgia Bulldog might have his hands full with another SEC rookie, former Arkansas Razorback and current Broncos’ defensive lineman McTelvin Agim.
It’s possible, and maybe even probable, that neither Wilson nor Agim will be pressed into starting duty in their NFL debuts. But with their high draft status in the first and third rounds respectively, and their team’s weaknesses at their designated positions, it’s likely that both players will at least get their fair share of reps. It’s even likely that those reps will be against one another.
For Wilson, the matchup early in his career could make for a difficult outing. The former Bulldog was already viewed as sort of an “NFL lineman in training” due to his lack of playing experience in college, but if he’s also forced to overcome the difficulty of adjusting to the NFL while also learning to play on the interior offensive line, Agim could have a big night against the Titans’ rookie.
Agim, as a third-round pick, won’t enter the league with too much of a spotlight or high-expectation. But the Arkansas product was quietly productive through four years of college and could make noise at the NFL level earlier than expected– especially if he can take advantage of Wilson’s inexperience.
