Michigan offensive tackle Taylor Lewan is the newest member of the Titans. He might not even have a starting tackle job waiting for him right away, but this is a case of Titans general manager Ruston Webster choosing the top player on his board.

The Titans had a chance to draft Johnny Manziel, but they will look to fill their quarterback need on the second day of the draft. The Titans of the mid-2000s were built around a strong tackle combination, and Webster is similarly focusing on building up front before they get a quarterback (and a running back) they can believe in long term.
