Ruston Webster to Attend Ole Miss-LSU

New, comments

The Titans' GM will be down south on Saturday.

In a week where most NFL executives and scouts can be found at Michigan State-Ohio State, Ruston Webster has decided to take a trip to Oxford, Mississippi.  The decision is slightly surprising to me, being that this would be a great week to gauge Joey Bosa and the rest of the Ohio State Buckeyes against Michigan State.  However, this could offer a glimpse into what Webster is thinking.

It's very possible that Webster (If he's still the guy making the calls) could opt for Ole Miss left tackle Laremy Tunsil next spring.  Tunsil is a near top five lock, barring any setbacks over the last month of the season.  He's regarded as the top lineman of this class by most analysts.

A scout told NFL.com's Albert Breer that Tunsil was "A top-10 pick, legit left tackle. And I think he's top five. He's an elite athlete, can move in any direction, any way he wants. He's premier. Easy moving, quick, sudden, explosive, fast. All the athletic traits, he has them all."

The Tunsil pick would most likely mean a move to right tackle for a stuggling Taylor Lewan.  That -- in theory -- would solve the Titans' tackle issues. Byron Bell (if he is brought back) could kick back inside, or maybe Jeremiah Poutasi could grow into that role.

Let's not act like Tunsil is the only noteworthy prospect in the game, either.  Ole Miss has three potential top ten picks when you throw Robert Nkemdiche and Laquon Treadwell into the mix.  I'd be shocked in Treadwell was the Titans' selection in the spring, but Nkemdiche remains a possibility.

LSU has a few guys worth noting that Webster probably has on his radar.  Cornerback Tre'Davious White and offensive lineman Vadal Alexander are the most notable.
