David Stewart (born August 28, 1982) is an American football offensive tackle. He is currently playing for the Tennessee Titans, starting as their right tackle. Stewart played college football for the Mississippi State Bulldogs.

High school careerEdit

Stewart attended Lawrence County High School in Moulton, Alabama, where he was a two-way tackle and three-year letterman. He earned Class 4A All-State on the offensive line by the Birmingham News. Stewart also recorded 120 tackles, including 28 quarterback sacks during his junior and senior years while on defense.[1]

He was rated with the top offensive linemen in the western half of the southeast region (Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas) by Bobby Burton in his Rivals.com preseason recruiting magazine and said to have "as much potential as anyone in the state" by that publication.[1]

College careerEdit

After redshirting his initial year at Mississippi State, Stewart appeared in six games during the 2001 season, starting vs. Louisiana State, Arkansas and Troy State. The following year, he took over the right tackle slot and went on to start the next 35 contests. He graded 82 percent for blocking consistency as a sophomore and produced 76 knockdown blocks the following season.

As a senior, Stewart graded a career-high 84.8 percent and also totaled 69 knockdowns, which earned him All-Southeastern Conference honors. In his last 35 games, Stewart recorded 218 knockdowns and had 25 touchdown-resulting blocks.[1]

Professional careerEdit

Tennessee TitansEdit

After being inactive all 16 games in his rookie season in 2005, Stewart became the starting right tackle in 2006, replacing Michael Roos who was moved to left tackle, and was part of an offensive line that spearheaded the fifth ranked rushing attack in the NFL. As of February 2009, Stewart has made 45 consecutive starts at right tackle for the Titans, including all 16 games over the past two seasons. He was a member of an offensive line that allowed an NFL-low 12 quarterback sacks in 2008 and was named to the 2008 All-Pro Second Team.
