Mike Sando of ESPN.com re-ranked the 2014 NFL Draft class after their first year in the league. Taylor Lewan came in at #16 on those rankings. Here are Sando's comments:
A season-ending ankle injury and the Titans' 2-14 record took the shine off Lewan's rookie season without changing opinions on him.
Lewan showed a lot of promise in his limited time playing in 2014. He is going to be the anchor of the Titans line for the next decade. What if in the next 2-5 years the Titans have one of the best quarterbacks and one of the best offensive tackles in the league? It is a legitimate possibility.
It is interesting to me that Sammy Watkins (#4 on the list) ranked ahead of Mike Evans (#7) on the list. I think both players will be really good, but the ceiling seems higher for Evans to me.
