Biography

 
PRO: With the 11th overall selection in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Titans selected former Michigan left tackle Taylor Lewan (prounounced leh-WAHN).  The 6-foot-7-inch, 309-pound lineman possesses the measurables, athleticism and commitment to be a mainstay in the lineup for years to come.  An outgoing personality off the field, he is tenacious and aggressive on it.  At Michigan, he was a four-year starter, anchoring the line at left tackle for 48 career starts.  At the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine, he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.87 seconds, beating all other offensive linemen in his class and clocking the fourth-fastest time among offensive linemen in the last five years (2010-14).  He also ranked among the top offensive linemen at the 2014 combine in the broad jump (first at nine feet, nine inches), vertical jump (tied for third at 30.5 inches) and three-cone drill (fourth at 7.39 seconds).  Lewan became the first offensive tackle selected by the Titans/Oilers in the first round since tackle Brad Hopkins (13th overall) in 1993.  Paired with right guard Chance Warmack, who was the 10th overall pick in 2013, the duo became the first offensive linemen to be selected by the franchise in back-to-back first rounds since Mike Munchak (1982) and Bruce Matthews (1983).

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS:
•    Lewan was named the Big Ten Conference Offensive Lineman of the Year in 2012 and 2013.    
•    Against Massachusetts on Sept. 15, 2012, he recovered a fumble in the end zone to become the first Michigan offensive lineman to score a touchdown since 1948 (Bob Erben).
•    At the conclusion of the 2011 season, during which Lewan helped pave the way for a pair of 1,000-yard rushers (Denard Robinson and Fitzgerald Toussaint), the Wolverines scored an overtime victory over Virginia Tech in the Sugar Bowl.

TITANS TIDBITS:  
•    Lewan chose to wear jersey number 77 at Michigan and then at the pro level because of the legacy of Wolverine tackles who have donned the number, including Jake Long and Jon Jansen.
•    His father, Dave, was a defensive lineman at the University of Minnesota.
•    Lewan has a mustache tattooed on his right index finger and a stick figure tattooed on the outside edge of his right hand that he calls his “right-hand man.”  
•    One of Lewan’s close friends is Carolina Panthers defensive end Craig Roh.  The two played together as high school seniors and then went to Michigan at the same time.

•    A native of Cave Creek, Ariz., Lewan was selected by the Titans in the first round (11th overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft.
