With the 29th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Tennessee Titans select offensive tackle Isaiah Wilson, Georgia.

After losing Jack Conklin via free agency to the Browns, Titans general manager Jon Robinson and head coach Mike Vrabel elected to take his immediate replacement in Wilson. He’s a mammoth-sized prospect at 6-foot-6 and 350 pounds and projects as a Day 1 starter. Although he’s very raw, he has the power, athleticism and upside in order to turn into a serviceable perimeter option.

Wilson entered the draft after his redshirt sophomore season and is seen as a trial-and-error starter; he will have to learn on the go. Tennessee is willing to take its bumps and bruises in that department as he learns on the fly as a starter opposite of Taylor Lewan. 

Our scouts say: "Wilson is an all-everything recruit. He’s an impressive blend of size, mobility and power and has some dominant reps on tape as both a run and pass blocker where his traits simply allow him to take over. He’ll have to hone in on the technical side of the game to maximize his rare physical gifts and reach his ceiling at the next level. There are notable concerns with his hands and feet that need to improve but nothing is unfixable. His foundation over unteachable traits is the appeal here. Wilson has an extremely high ceiling but development is needed. He’s a scheme-versatile blocker that projects best to the right side."
