There is an ongoing issue right now for the Titans, as both Tretola and Tajae Sharpe have been accused of a draft day incident. Supposedly, Tretola acted as a lookout while teammate, Tajae Sharpe, assaulted the man outside of a bar in Nashville. Which, could potentially cause some disciplinary issues for the two of them. But, until further information comes out, he will remain on our list.
New England cast-off Josh Kline did well in his first season in Nashville. When Warmack went down last season, Kline stepped in and ended up starting fourteen games. He will begin the season as a starter, but competition will be stiff. Sebastian Tretola was a sixth round pick for the Titans last year, and could push Kline for the starting job. Playing for Arkansas, Tretola played two seasons in one of the toughest college conferences. He surrendered one sack over the course of the two season he spent in Arkansas. Tretola’s Senior year saw him register an outstanding 75 knockdowns. Though he barely saw the field las season, he learned alot from his experience.
“My first year was great because I was able to sit back and learn. We have two Pro Bowlers in Taylor (Lewan) and Jack (Conklin), and Ben Jones, who knows everything in the middle. And Q and Josh hold their own in there, and even the back-ups – (Brian) Schwenke and Dennis (Kelly), those guys helped me and they were ready to go at any moment. The experience was new to me, but it’s something I think I might’ve needed to help me progress to the next step.”

Though playing time may be hard to come by next season as well, Tretola is patiently waiting. He has a chance to supplant Josh Kline in one of the top tier units in the NFL.
