Are the Titans actually interested?
Teven Jenkins is a career right tackle with some position versatility, but for the purposes of this, you have to assume that the Titans are looking at him to be the right tackle sooner rather than later.
This isn’t the time to have the debate on whether or not offensive tackle should be the pick at 22, but he does fit what they traditionally love in an offensive line prospect. He is a long-term starter, he has above average size for the position, came into college as a lower-ranked prospect, and he is nasty as…well…you know.
So there is no doubt in my mind that Jenkins is the type of player that the Titans are looking for late in the first round this year, but…
Two points I want to convey before I go into this. First, I trust Melo and I suspect that there is legitimate interest between the Titans and Jenkins.
Second, if a rumor is getting out in early April, it is probably being leaked on purpose by someone.
Remember, the question is, who had something to gain from leaking this?
