Despite a turbulent Titans tenure, Isaiah Wilson has managed to draw interest from multiple teams in recent days. The Giants worked out the 2020 first-round pick Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN.com tweets.
This audition followed Wilson’s Colts meeting. While Wilson’s stock has fallen off a cliff since the Titans made him the No. 29 overall pick last year, the young tackle has resurfaced and could have another chance soon.
The Titans traded Wilson to the Dolphins after a four-snap rookie season. The Georgia product ran into extensive off-field trouble as a rookie and encountered more this year, with a January arrest involving a high-speed chase leading the Dolphins to cut bait as well. After several months off the radar, Wilson is aiming to catch on with a third team.
The Giants have gone through considerable issues on their offensive front, an area that has been a problem for several years. Both Nick Gates and Shane Lemieux are out for the season, with the former’s career possibly in jeopardy. At tackle, the Giants are starting ex-Wilson Georgia teammate Andrew Thomas — chosen 25 spots before Wilson last year — and veteran Nate Solder. They are trying 2020 third-round pick Matt Peart at guard, with the injuries causing some early-season promotions.
At Georgia, Wilson lined up opposite Thomas at right tackle and earned second-team All-SEC acclaim in 2019. After letting Jack Conklin walk in free agency, the Titans had Wilson penciled in as their heir apparent on the right side. His myriad issues interfered with that vision, however, and resulted in a quick trip to the workout circuit. Even at 22, Wilson is already running out of chances.
