Titans selected Utah RT Jeremiah Poutasi with the No. 66 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.
Poutasi (6'5/335) spent three seasons at Utah before going pro, piling up 35 starts. He played right tackle as a freshman and protected the blind side as a sophomore and junior. Poutasi allowed 2 1/2 sacks in 2014. Still only 20 years old, Poutasi isn't quite athletic enough to stay at left tackle in the NFL, but is a mauling, country-strong blocker who could dominate at right tackle or left guard. He's been likened to Browns LG Joel Bitonio by's Gil Brandt. Fri, May 1, 2015 09:40:00 PM

Utah OL Jeremiah Poutasi is "a starting guard" in the NFL but must be shifted inside, an anonymous NFL scout said.

"He doesn't move well enough to protect the edges (at tackle)," the scout told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "If you like big sluggers in there, Baltimore type, he's going to play." Poutasi is a young prospect who won't turn 21 until August. "He's more athletic than [Erick] Flowers, but his workout was bad," another scout said. "He has to be a right tackle or guard. He held up OK at left tackle against the good pass rushers of the Pac-10."

The Cowboys and Eagles put Utah OL Jeremiah Poutasi through a private workout, according to Tony Pauline.

Poutasi is a powerful blocker who many project to move inside in the NFL. The Utah product has played both tackle spots, and some teams could view that as positional versatility. He tested like a below average athlete.

Utah OL Jeremiah Poutasi is drawing the label of "Mike Iupati Jr." from evaluators, according to Tony Pauline.

Pauline opens by saying most teams are evaluating Poutasi at guard, and we would not put it past the NFL to be making this comparison based on physical appearance. Poutasi played left tackle and right tackle while at Utah.

Utah junior T Jeremiah Poutasi could get moved inside to guard in the pros, CBS Sports' Rob Rang believes.

Rang and his colleagues at previously ranked Poutasi No. 8 amongst 2016 OTs. "The 6-foot-5, 322 pounder started the past two seasons at left tackle for the Utes but began his career on the right side," the analyst wrote. "The ability to switch positions could be critical for Poutasi as he looks like a candidate to move inside to guard. Poutasi can overwhelm defenders with his sheer size but he struggled with Southern Cal's speed and will, of course, see a lot more of it in the NFL." NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah wrote last month that Poutasi is an "intriguing prospect" that is "pretty raw" but has "plenty of upside."

Citing a source, draft insider Tony Pauline writes Utah junior T Jeremiah Poutasi is expected to enter the 2015 NFL Draft.

Poutasi earned praise earlier this season from NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah, saying he is an "intriguing prospect" that is "pretty raw," with "plenty of upside." Utah has already played their bowl game, so Poutasi has time to focus on the decision. Poutasi has experience at left and right tackle.

NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah notes that Utah junior OL Jeremiah Poutasi is an "intriguing prospect" that is "pretty raw," with "plenty of upside."

"Studied Utah OT Jeremiah Poutasi tonight…excellent size, length and foot quicks. Pretty raw but plenty of upside. Intriguing prospect," Jeremiah tweeted. The 6-foot-6, 330-pound Poutasi has experience at both the tackle and guard position for Utah. Moving forward, Poutasi will most likely viewed as a guard at the next level.

Utah junior OL Jeremiah Poutasi "could emerge as a draftable commodity" if he has a smooth transition to guard this season, wrote CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

Poutasi started at LT as a freshman before moving to RT last year. The massive 6-foot-5, 345-pounder (he's reportedly down to 330) is a natural guard, however, and that's where he'll play in 2014. Good thing, too, because that's where the NFL sees him. "[Poutasi] is surprisingly quick and light on his feet," Rang wrote. "He does not possess ideal flexibility or length and struggles a bit with leverage but could emerge as a draftable commodity if he takes to the new role."

Utah plans to start freshman RT Jeremiah Poutasi and freshman RG Siaosi Aiono against USC on Thursday.

USC junior DE Morgan Breslin, who has been on fire this season with 9.5 tackles for loss and 5.5 sacks after transferring from JUCO, should have a field day. Poutasi has started tow games this season including BYU and Arizona State, but Breslin offers a totally different challenge. In fact, head coach Kyle Whittingham said the two are starting out of "necessity."
