Guard Nate Davis taken by Titans in third round

The Tennessee Titans may have filled their vacant right guard position, drafting Nate Davis of North Carolina-Charlotte in the third round Friday night.
Davis should move in quickly in the competition there with veteran Kevin Pamphile, Corey Levin and Aaron Stinnie.
Titans general manager Jon Robinson said Davis will have the chance to compete for that spot, but he will have to earn it.
“He’ll come in here and go in there with the line room and go in there and compete. We’re not anointing anybody. He’ll have to go in there and earn it,” Robinson said.
Davis, who stood out at Senior Bowl workouts in preparation for the draft, said he plans to come in with his eye on the starting role.
“That’s my goal, to come in and earn the respect of the locker room and the older guys and such like that, and do what I do and hopefully earn that spot,” Davis said.
The Titans released last year’s starting right guard Josh Kline earlier this off-season and also elected not to re-sign left guard Quinton Spain, who signed as an unrestricted free agent with Buffalo.
Tennessee signed veteran Rodger Safford earlier this off-season to man the left guard position.
Davis, 6-3, 311, fits the Titans plans to get bigger and stronger on the interior of the offensive line, which was a problem at times last season.
“I think Saffold will be a good example certainly for Nate. He’s played a long time in this league. He’ll be a good guy for him to learn with – him, Ben, Taylor and all those guys,” Robinson said.
