2. Julie’n Davenport
Never forget that in free agency, the most important thing in the world for this coaching staff is familiarity. Davenport was originally drafted by the Houston Texans back in 2017 when Mike Vrabel was the DC.

Now, that obviously isn’t enough to get him a starting job, but remember we are just talking about a backup offensive tackle job. With that in mind, there are two things that Davenport has that make him a unique and intriguing backup candidate.
First, he is nearly 6’7 and the Titans are built around having big bodies at the tackle position. Over the last few years, the Titans have really only had four players that they identified as starters or eventual starters and they are Taylor Lewan, Jack Conklin, Dennis Kelly, and Isaiah Wilson.
All of those players are 6’6 or taller and it is obviously something that this coaching staff and front office values.
The other intriguing thing about Davenport is that he is a natural left tackle with 44 starts in college at the left tackle position. Most “swing tackles” are usually right tackles who don’t embarrass themselves at left tackle, but Davenport seems more likely to be a player that does his best work on the blindside.
