State of the Tennessee Titans Roster: Offensive Line

New, comments

The offensive line was the strength of the 2008 team and should be again in 2009.  It all starts with the bookends at tackle with Michael Roos and David Stewart.  Roos finally got the credit he deserves last season with a Pro Bowl bid, and Stewart is one of the nastiest players in the league.  Don't be surprised to see him in Hawaii Miami next season.

Both guards were new last season with Jake Scott coming in via free agency and Eugene Amano getting his first shot to be a starter.  Both guys played pretty well last season and should continue to improve with more time in the system.

Kevin Mawae still anchors the middle of the O line, but his health has been declining over the past couple of seasons.  Leroy Harris proved last season that he can hold his own if Mawae goes down.  There was even talk that Harris is physically a better player than Mawae.  If the Titans have faith that Mawae is ready to go this season, you could see Harris push Amano for the starting guard spot when camp comes around.

There really isn't any experienced depth behind Harris on the roster, but that is nothing to worry about with Mike Munchak coaching these guys up.  There is a good chance that there is another Pro Bowl lineman among the Troy Kropog/Ryan Durant/Fernando Velascos of the world.
