With their 4th round compensatory selection in the 2009 draft, the Titans took addressed their need for for additional depth on the line by Tulane OT Troy Kropog. Kropog, a Louisiana native who stands 6’6″ 309#, red-shirted his first year with the Green Wave and sat his second, but started at left tackle for his last three seasons. From the scouting reports, he’s a guy who could play the blind side but the Titans likely see him as the replacement for Daniel Loper as OT depth. He doesn’t really fit the model as a guard, plus there were more natural guards on the board, most notably ex-Oklahoma Sooner Duke Robinson, who would have been my choice for this pick. One thing I wonder is if Mike Otto’s roster spot is in danger-I don’t think he’s a guard either, and I’m not sure the Titans keep 2 developmental OTs with Roos and Stewart in the fold for a while.
What do you think? Like the pick, or did the Titans have other needs?
