Titans first-round pick Taylor Lewan was appealing in part because of his nasty streak. But at times, he's crossed the line on the field, says John Glennon of The Tennessean.

To which I say: I think the Titans need to monitor the nasty streak. Another Titans tackle from Michigan who had a similar playing persona, Jon Runyan, said a player needs to be able to turn it on and off. “[Y]ou’ve got to take your shots in there at them, and push them around a little bit and truly just be a jerk on the field,” Runyan said. “But you can’t live in society like that because you’ll wind up being locked up.”

Take a crack at building the Titans' 53-man roster with this tool, via The Tennessean.

Alterraun Verner ranked 93rd in the 2013 season in the top 101 of Khaled Elsayed's list on Pro Football Focus. The Titans cornerback turned Buccaneer allowed one reception per every 15 snaps in coverage, fifth-best in the league, even as he dropped off at the end.
