Ladies and gentlemen, we’ve found a right tackle for the Tennessee Titans.
It’s one of those things that Titans fans have been talking about all offseason. Who’s going to play the right tackle position? Taylor Lewan has settled in on that left side, and from left guard to right guard, we all have a pretty good handle on what we expect to see come Week 1 of the 2021 regular season: Rodger Saffold III (left guard), Ben Jones (center), and Nate Davis (right guard).
Here’s the final piece of the puzzle. Brady Christensen is your best bang-for-buck guy at the 166th selection seeing as how guys like Thayor Munford and Stone Forsythe didn’t always play up to the level of competition that they faced during the final years and guys like Jake Curhan figure to be off of the board by the time we reach the fifth round of the selection process.
Sure, we can argue about the level of competition that Christensen faced at BYU while with the Cougars, but if that isn’t hampering Zach Wilson from being seen as one of the class’ best quarterback prospects, why would it be an issue for the guy that played well as one of his pass protectors?
Christensen also did a great job in the Cougars running game. Is he the perfect prospect? No, he isn’t, but that’s why NFL teams employ offensive line coaches. If handled correctly, this is someone that could slide in and start at right tackle for Tennessee.
