The Tennessee Titans did a good job of replenishing the roster in the offseason despite the fact that they had a limited amount of cap space in 2023. On top of that, they had to move on from several-long time contributors.

The good news is that the Titans seem to be in better shape than they were at the end of the 2022 season. On the other hand, they still need to answer several questions in a handful of position groups. Here are five surrounding their offensive line.

5. Is the Titans offensive line better or worse than it was in 2022?

Yes, the Titans' offensive line is better than it was last year and that's because the team's brass cut ties with offensive guard Nate Davis, center Ben Jones and left tackle Taylor Lewan but made sure to find adequate replacements. Jones was released after an injury-ridden 2022 season and Tennessee is replacing him with Andrew Brewer, who mostly lined up at left guard last season.

Similarly, they're plugging in 2023 first-round pick Peter Skoronski at left guard despite the fact that he mostly played outside in college. At left tackle, Tennessee is rolling with former first-round pick Andre Dillard after releasing Lewan in the offseason. Also, they're giving sophomore Nicholas Petit-Frere a chance to show he's the long-term answer at right tackle (more on that later).

Last but not least, Tenessee signed Daniel Brunskill to fill the void left by Davis, who signed with the Chicago Bears in the offseason, at right guard.

Is the Titans' offensive line perfect? Far from it but given that they were dealing with cap constraints, general manager Ran Carthon deserves praise for doing his best to ensure whoever lines up behind center in 2023 has adequate protection.
