Titans T Taylor Lewan ready to show and prove in second year
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(5/10/15) After an up-and-down rookie campaign that saw him break into the starting lineup only to miss the last handful of games with an injury, Titans tackle Taylor Lewan is ready to make an impact in his second season, per The Tennessean.
Lewan will enter the season as the team's starting left tackle, and he will have to improve his play both in order to protect likely starter Marcus Mariota and lift a run game that rushed for 100 yards or less in 12 games.
"I know what to expect now in year two," Lewan said. "I know the things I have to do to be successful, at least more than what I did last year. My job isn't necessarily telling guys what to do, but try and win every single sprint, try and lift the most weight, do the best in my blocking techniques. If anybody wants to be a leader, I think that is where you start."

|(5/4/15) Even though the Titans drafted quarterback Marcus Mariota with the second-overall pick, tackle Taylor Lewan said that QB Zach Mettenberger, who started six games last season as a rookie, still regards himself as the starter, reports the Tennessean.com.|
"That is the mentality that Zach has. He thinks of himself as a starter, and the guys in the locker room do also," Lewan said. "I don't think he is going to give it up easily,"
Lewan was the Titans' first-round pick in last year's draft.
