Biography

PRO: The Titans used their first pick (29th overall) in the 2020 NFL Draft on massive Georgia offensive lineman Isaiah Wilson with the expectation that he would compete for playing time at right tackle as a rookie. The 6-foot-6-inch, 350-pounder brings athleticism to the position in addition to his imposing size.
