Jim Wyatt / The Tennessean

The Tennessee Titans drafted Michigan tackle Taylor Lewan with the 11th overall pick of the NFL Draft on Thursday.

The 6-foot-7, 309-pounder was the third tackle selected, behind Auburn's Greg Robinson (second overall to the Rams) and Texas A&M's Jake Matthews (sixth to the Falcons).

Lewan started 49 games at left tackle for the Wolverines.

He figures to be the future replacement for veteran left tackle Michael Roos, who is going into the final year of his contract.

The Titans also signed free agent tackle Michael Oher from the Ravens earlier this offseason.

UCLA linebacker Anthony Barr, who was projected to the Titans in numerous mock drafts, went ninth overall to the Vikings.
