2011 NFL Draft: Tennessee Titans Select Louisville OT Byron Stingily

Well, unfortunately for us, there are no photos available for our newest Titan, but let's see what he's got anyways. Stingily is a mountain of a man at 6'5" 313. Clearly, he's got the NFL ready frame, but he's one of these monster linemen that need some coaching from some really good offensive line coaches. Fortunately for us, we've got one of those. His negatives look coachable and his positives look like they might help him win a roster spot. 

One thing that I really like about Stingily is that he completely manhandles linebackers at the second level and negates rush ends on the line. He's a total mauler and has some good run blocking traits. Of course, he's going to have to work hard to get to where he needs to be, but with the Munchak/Matthews combination coaching him up, I think he legitimately could turn into something productive. 

His pass protection needs work. I think this is where he really dropped in terms of draft stock. His massive arms should help him keep defenders away from his body, but again, it all comes down to coaching and how well he picks up on what they throw at him.
