2015 NFL Draft: Titans Take Jeremiah Poutasi

The Titans go OL in round 3

In the third round, the Titans decided to address the offensive line, but in a different way than expected. Poutasi is an offensive guard from Utah.

While Poutasi played offensive tackle in college at Utah, he projects as a guard in the NFL. The Titans needed to create competition along the offensive line, whether it is at tackle or guard. Andy Levitre is officially on notice. He will have to fight for his job in a competitive situation, and could be released if he does not impress.

At the very worst, Poutasi could at least compete for the offensive tackle job with Byron Bell if push comes to shove. It will also be interesting to see if the team continues to keep an eye out on the open market for a veteran, even after signing Byron Bell. With the Rams drafting Havenstein, Barksdale could still be had.

The Titans are continuing to upgrade their offense. They have not taken a player on the other side of the ball yet on the first two days. This matches what Ruston Webster said about this being an "offensive draft." Barring a trade, the Titans are done for the day. We'll see if they are done on offense for the weekend.
