Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Bills' picks: Round 2/51 -- Andy Levitre, G/T, 6-2, 306, Oregon State...The Bills liked Levitre so much they shipped their third- and fourth-round picks to Dallas to move up 24 spots and back into the second round to draft the All-Pac-10 tackle. Levitre projects as an NFL guard and Buffalo needs tackles, where Levitre -- who started 39 games at tackle in college -- is hampered by his height and short arms. He allowed 10.5 sacks in 863 pass plays at Oregon State. Has weak upper body and not a "masher" so he's got work to do in the weight room. On the plus side, he's a smart player, one of just 25 draft-eligible players to earn his college degree in finance and sociology. - by The Sports Xchange

Levitre had been the starter for two seasons with the Titans after having signed a six-year, $46.8 million deal in 2013 as the supposed fix for an inconsistent and ailing offensive line. The writing was on the wall for Levitre after he was benched following the preseason opener, ironically against the Falcons. He played on the second team in the next two preseason games and did not play at all in the preseason finale against the Vikings, which led to much speculation that he would be released.
Instead, he was dealt for a pair of draft picks.
"We felt like it was an opportunity for both clubs and the player," Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said. "It was a good situation. I really appreciate the time that Andy has put in here. I think one of the things I respect most about Andy is, he's a good football player, but he's also very good in the community, and that's something that I think is really important.
"I'm happy for Andy because he gets an opportunity to go down and play and potentially start in Atlanta, and it was something that was certainly good for us, so we're ready to move on."
