Even though the 2014 NFL Draft is loaded with offensive line talent, it didn't take long for that talent to come off the board. Taylor Lewan out of Michigan was a prime example, drafted by the Titans with the No. 11 overall pick, making him the third offensive tackle taken.

CBSSports.com senior writer Pete Prisco isn't so sure about the pick.

Lewan was certainly in the discussion as the top offensive linemen of the draft, though considered by many to be below Greg Robinson of Auburn (who went No. 2 to the Rams) and Jake Matthews of Texas A&M (who went No. 6 to the Falcons).

But what made Lewan stand out was his ability to dominate in a physical way in the trenches.

Here are some of the fiscal details...

Standing at 6-foot-7 and weighing 309 pounds, Lewan's actually is pretty quick, checking in with a 4.8 40-yard dash. Lewan's also got the tools to potentially dominate in the run game early at the NFL level.
