The CBS Sports NFL Draft team breaks down the pick below, including a grade for the pick, how it affects fantasy leagues and more on Wilson, including his strengths and weaknesses, his NFL comp and more.

29. Tennessee Titans: B+

Pete Prisco: I think this is a good pick. This is a massive right tackle on a team that needs a massive right tackle. This kid is a mauler in the run game and he’s perfect for what the Titans want to do.

Fantasy impact

Dave Richard: I get the pick by the Titans — Isaiah Wilson fills a need at right tackle. He’s a good run blocker with massive size. It’s a great pick for Derrick Henry’s stock. Enough to take him in the top five overall? No. But still a good pick.
