How seriously do the Tennessee Titans need offensive linemen

New, comments

What are sources saying according to one site?

The Titans have drafted offensive line at the top of both the 2013 and 2014 NFL Draft, where will they look to find one in 2015?

This is the time of the year where "sources" start to spring up like wildfire, but with the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars spending a lot of time in the public eye during the Senior Bowl, there may be more of a reason to pay attention to these rumors.

One of the more obvious rumors that has been circulating is this one from about the Titans interest ino offensive linemen.

Sources say in the mid-rounds and maybe later on the second day Tennessee could look to get help at guard and right tackle. Andy Levitre had a big drop-off in 2014, and Michael Oher wasn't impressive. Backup Byron Stingily played well when forced into the lineup, and if the Titans are able to bring Stingily back, he could compete with Oher on the right side. There could be move competition coming from the middle rounds.

That is around where most would have pegged the Titans interest in an offensive lineman this year, but after drafting an OL in the first round the last two years, it was good to see that in 2015 they should be a little more patient.

This opens the door for the Titans to pass on some top end talent, but right tackle and guard especially are easier fixes than most think and plenty of talented guards have been found in the third round or later for example: Marshal Yanda (3rd), T.J. Lang (4th), David Stewart (4th).
