NASHVILLE, TN (AP) -

The Tennessee Titans have selected offensive tackle Taylor Lewan of Michigan at No. 11 overall, taking an offensive lineman with their top pick for a second year in a row.

The 6-foot-7, 309-pound Lewan started 49 straight games at left tackle at Michigan and joins right guard Chance Warmack, the 10th overall selection in 2013.

Lewan, a Scottsdale Chaparral product, is just the sixth player with Arizona ties to be drafted in the first round since 2003.

He was recruited to Ann Arbor by current UA head coach Rich Rodriguez. Wildcats' tight ends coach Charlie Ragle was Lewan high school coach with the Firebirds.

The Titans went into the draft with no immediate need. Michael Roos has a year left on his contract and has started all but one game since 2006 at left tackle for the Titans. Tennessee signed Michael Oher in March as their new right tackle.
    
Tennessee had its choice of quarterbacks to replace often-injured Jake Locker with only Blake Bortles unavailable but chose to go with bolstering protection for the quarterback.
