They're bringing in Cyrus Kouandjio for a workout. If they sign him then he should be the favorite to start in place of Decker.

What happened to Cyrus? His sophomore year at Alabama, he was supposed to be this generational talent at the next level.

Injuries, and he was found wandering in a field in his underwear.

lots of injuries and got stuck with a coaching staff in Buffalo that didn't want to play him, despite clearly being one of their better players when he did see the field. He's also still only 23 years old, he isn't finished developing. He's only about 1 month older than Taylor Decker.

I watched Conklin against my son in high school and he was a monster. My son got him once when he got real low and under him but when he tried it a second time and a 3rd he was put into the ground. Conklin is an upcoming elite LT. By the way, my son did get around him that one time hit the QB forced a fumble and the blitzing safety picked it up and scored. Decker in my opinion is and upcoming elite LT also but I believe his athleticism is a notch higher and that is high praise coming from a UofM grad. Decker was a great pick and one that Detroit will cherish for the next decade. Decker will be back this year and he will be just as dominant. He was the best rookie LT last year and one of the better ones in the league and I expect him to continue that success. I truly think that Storm has a chance to impress in this opportunity he is going to work for. Undrafted does not mean untalented so to speak. Many players go undrafted because they seem to measure on just numbers and not the actual play. Yes, GM's and Scouts can overlook players and get caught up in the statistical numbers of pro days and combines. In this new era of scouting and numbers and sabermetrics, they have yet to find a way to measure heart.


He currently isn't, and won't be a LT for the Titans.

Only because Lewan looks like he could be elite.

Also how cool that Michigan/MSU 1st round tackles will be anchoring the Titans for the next decade?
