Tennessee Titans new left tackle Taylor Lewan is ready to dominate in the NFL during the 2014 season, and he admits that he will do the dirty work if his team needs him to.
Lewan gained a reputation during his college years in Michigan as a player that didn't take any prisoners.
This led to endless offensive foul calls against him with Lewan's discipline coming into question many times. But the first round draft pick says he won't curb his nasty ways, with a lot of strong play coming on the back of his aggressiveness.
When the Titans were looking for who to pick in the first round of the draft, Lewan's nasty streak will have been one of the major selling points.
The 6ft 7inch 309-pound was a huge asset for Michigan because of his intense nature that came with the way he attacks the game and his opponents.
"There is definitely a line, and I think there were a couple of times that I absolutely overstepped it in my career at Michigan," Lewan told The Tennessean.
"I'm going to do some things here and there, and obviously you never want to put the team in position to lose or hurt us in any way.
"But if I need to be that guy that steps in when my quarterback is getting hit and maybe toss (defenders) around a little more than I should, then I'm definitely willing to be that guy."
