You might think this is a hybrid betwen ad and tank, but it's NOT! Your job as a tank is to redirect aggro, you won't do that with a silence alone. Getting the extra damage will punish their carries/casters along with your silence.
The extra health will help your health regen which in turn will help your harassing capabilities.
You will need magic resistance. As you will most likely only get Force of nature, the extra MR will help, especially at low levels.

This will help your mid-end game, as a means of helping your harass.
