Third-rounder Nate Davis in line to win Titans' right guard job

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – When Nate Davis out of Charlotte of Conference USA arrived at the Senior Bowl among players from much bigger schools from much more high-profile conferences, he didn’t flinch.

“I think it helped me out a ton,” he said. “Just going into Senior Bowl week, you’ve just got to think it’s the same game you’ve been playing since you were 7 years old and don’t psych yourself out.” [Unlocked]

Davis will have every chance to win the Titans’ open right guard spot, which would make for a second upgrade at guard.

Veteran Roger Saffold came in as a free agent at left guard to replace Quinton Spain and Davis should replace Josh Kline, who was cut before a contract guarantee kicked in.

“Schematically we’re going to try to run the football, we want to be able to try to get those guys to pull, get out in space on smaller defenders and create some run lanes for Derrick (Henry), for Dion (Lewis) for (David Fluellen),” Robinson said. “I think Saffold will be a good example for Nate.”

Through three rounds the Titans have hit three key spots with Jeffery Simmons, a defensive lineman; A.J. Brown, a receiver; and Davis.

They really need pass rush help and it seems like that would be priority one Saturday when they pick at No. 121 in the fourth round.
