JC Latham is showing the Tennessee Titans why it made the right decision on draft night to take him over Joe Alt at No. 7 overall.

Latham, a University of Alabama alum, dominated as an offensive tackle throughout his tenure.

A former five-star in the 2021 signing class, Latham has two Southeastern Conference Championship rings and two College Football Playoff appearances.

He assisted the Crimson Tide to dethroning a two-time defending CFP National Champion in Georgia in the SEC title game. Latham displayed impressive strength during the Titans’ rookie minicamp as the first Tide player taken in this recent draft.

He lifted and moved a 380-pound sled at 40 pounds lighter than the sled (340 pounds). The sled got the better of Latham the first time, but he showed his power in the next reps. He impressed coaches, teammates, and the local media on the field.

Latham was a right tackle at Alabama, but he wants to prove he can play on the left side too.
