LT Tyron Smith - Dallas Cowboys

Over the past two seasons the Tennessee Titans most glaring issue on the roster has been left tackle. Dennis Daley and Andre Dillard combined for 2 of the 10 worst seasons at LT of the past decade, allowing 24 sacks total (12 apiece) BY THEMSELVES. Dillon Radunz, although slightly better, was still a total liability.

The Titans are currently projected to take either Ola Fashanu or Joe Alt with the number 7 pick in the NFL draft, and that makes complete sense. However, if Callahan and Carthon weren't confident in either of those prospects or wanted to address a different issue with their 1st rounder, signing Tyron Smith would completely alleviate any worry about Levis' blindside.

Smith, a future Hall of Famer, has been a staple on the Cowboys O-line for the past 9 years when healthy. He has multiple years under his belt without allowing a single sack or pressure and is a dawg in the run game as well.

Callahan has already emphasized in his opening presser that he wants the team to retain its physicality under the new coaching staff, and adding Tyron Smith would instantly give them a monster to bully opponents, mirroring Jeffrey Simmons on the defensive side of the ball.

If Mike Munchak really does come back to be the offensive line coach or if the Titans can snatch Bill Callahan from the Cleveland Browns to help bolster the offensive line, then those two additions would go a long way toward fixing the Tennessee Titans' biggest issue.
