Taylor Lewan was drafted 11th overall by the Tennessee Titans during the 2014 NFL draft. The talented Michigan product has seen his draft stock bounce all over the board, but ultimately, his talent was too much for the Titans to pass up. 

Lewan was a highly touted offensive-line prospect throughout his college career, but his stock started a roller-coaster ride thanks to some personal-foul issues and off-field red flags during his last year with the Wolverines.

Everything about Lewan is designed to play left tackle in the pros. He has the size, agility and strength to protect the quarterback's blind side, and all the physical tools necessary to be a star. He's got a good motor and has shown impressive explosiveness blocking beyond the initial point of contact. 

However, there are plenty of risks with the former Wolverines standout. Lewan's technique is still raw, and he demonstrated a habit of drawing costly penalties at the worst possible times in college. His maturity is a concern as well, and he has a tendency to rely too heavily on his natural ability to stop rushers.

Will Lewan live up to his potential in the pros? Or will his flawed technique be too much to overcome? Watch as our draft experts discuss the lineman's ceiling, and what he brings to the NFL as a rookie.
