Mel Kiper has released his All-Rookie team (In$ider) and Titans right tackle Jack Conklin, to no one’s surprise, well other than maybe Geoff Schwartz, is one of the members. Kiper calls Conklin one of the best right tackles in the entire NFL. He certainly played like it this year.
The Titans have invested so many resources in their offensive line over the last few years. It is such a relief to see if finally all come together and be a strength of the team. Jon Robinson deserves a lot of the credit for that with the conviction to move up and take Conklin and for the signing of Ben Jones. Those were the final two pieces that finally put it over the top.
The Titans had two of the best tackles in the league for years with Michael Roos and David Stewart. They have that again now with Conklin and Taylor Lewan. Those guys will be the bookends of this run that the team is just about to start.
