Roos Busy Teaching, Holding Off Titans' Top Pick

Roos Busy Teaching, Holding Off Titans' Top Pick

CREATED May 28, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Left tackle Michael Roos knows exactly what's going on with the Tennessee Titans identifying his eventual replacement with their first selection in the NFL draft.

He's already been through this scenario, with one difference: Roos was the highly drafted rookie in 2005.

Roos learned from veteran Brad Hopkins while playing right tackle for a season before taking over that position for the next eight years. Now Roos is busy teaching Taylor Lewan, the No. 11 pick overall, while trying to hold him off with one year left on his own contract.

The veteran tackle says it was going to happen eventually because nobody plays forever and now his job is to see if he can hold Lewan off.
