Well since the Titans are finished for this year, what is your grade for Whiz & Ruston's first draft? Please feel free to post other site's draft grade as well.

I give it a B. Only pick I don't like is Huff. I've even warned up to the Lewan pick.

C. Don't like Lewan or Mettenberger, and would have preferred Desir over Huff. Liked Sankey, Jones, and Williamson.

C... Has the potential to be an A draft. However, drafting Lewan means your 1st round pick won't play this year, or that you wasted 9.5 mil guaranteed on Oher. Everyone says how great it will be to have a great player for so cheap but you're going to likely burn one of those cheap years because he doesn't have a spot to play.

Also it gets a low grade because we selected NO pass rushers. Kinda surprised by that. I get that we have Horton and we're gonna blitz and Wimbley and Phillips and Ayers are there and yada yada yada, but I thought they would look to add a young pass rusher at some point. They never did. I find that curious.

Like Sankey, like Jones, wonder what the game plan is for Huff.

A for potential.

C for now. It pretty much offers no help this year. Only one that should have an immediate impact is Sankey. Everyone else is a backup.

Good players but nothing really helping us this year.


I understand them not drafting rush help. Outside of those 1st two rounds the pass rushers were borderline at best. I can see how others rated higher.

ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr's draft grade for the #Titans: C+


Quote:

JOHN GLENNON'S GRADE: B-

The player who should make the quickest impact: running back Bishop Sankey. He is not huge, but he runs well inside and out, and he can catch. He should play a significant role in helping to replace Chris Johnson.

I wouldn't be surprised to see first-rounder Taylor Lewan starting at some point this season, possibly at right tackle or possibly pushing Michael Roos to right tackle. Lewan should be a cornerstone lineman for years.

JIM WYATT'S GRADE: B-

Oher only counts 6 mil against the cap if we cut him after this year.

Moving Roos to the right side also wouldn't be a bad idea. He's still a very good LT but he does tend to get beat by quicker PRs. Then again I think Lewan is probably the better run blocker and they tend to play on the right side. Personally with Levitre on the left side and being a better pass-blocker then run-blocker and Warmack vice-versa, I'd say put Lewan on the left side and Roos on the right. That way you have strengths of pass-blocking and run-blocking on each side. Not saying guys like Roos and Levitre suck as run-blocking or Chance and Lewan suck as pass-blocking but they're definitely better doing the opposite. Lewan-Levitre-Schwenke-Warmack-Roos looks good to me. Although I doubt Roos would like moving to RT during the final year of his contract.

Rotoworld already did a 2015 mock draft and of course they had the Titans picking first Laughing Laughing

1. Tennessee Titans
QB Marcus Mariota, Oregon - I think Mariota would have been the No. 1 pick in 2014, even over Clowney. Not due to pure talent necessarily, as Clowney should still hold that title, but Mariota had a legitimate shot at being the unanimous top ranked quarterback. Unless he gets the “quiet” treatment that Teddy Bridgewater received.

Roos has never been a demanding type of person. He'll probably do whatever the team asks of him.

And while I understand your reasoning, letting Lewan stick at RT and play the lesser PRs while he gets accustomed to the NFL is probably the better choice. I would personally like him to stay at RT 2 or 3 years and give Roos a 2 or 3 year extension.

I voted C. Though the drafts people seem to think are C and lower tend to be the best in the long run whereas the A's tend to bomb out. So I have hope. Laughing

Defend Lewan and Mett all you want, but they were poor character choices, though Mett hasn't had any problems outside the one incident. Also don't feel like we drafted any playmakers, which is to be expected when an OL goes round 1.

Excited for Sankey though. Don't like taking a RB day 2, but guess it was a need.

More from Rotoworld. They sure do hate us Laughing

Quote:
Tennessee Titans

11. Taylor Lewan, tackle, Michigan.
54. Bishop Sankey, running back, Washington.
112. DaQuan Jones, nose tackle, Penn State.
122. Marqueston Huff, defensive back, Wyoming.
151. Avery Williamson, inside linebacker, Kentucky.
178. Zach Mettenberger, quarterback, LSU.

Overview: The most perplexing draft in the league began on day one, where the fallout from GM Ruston Webster's first-round pick will likely either involve moving on from Tennessee's best offensive player (incumbent LT Michael Roos), or relegating its top free agent signing (RT Michael Oher) into a reserve role, where Oher would become the highest paid "swing" tackle in NFL history. Sankey's measurables look good on a spreadsheet and he'll have a boatload of fantasy football opportunity in Nashville, but his tape is Vick Ballard-like, and not indicative of a second-round pick. The best value picks were Jones, a lane-clogging nose who fills a glaring need in Ray Horton's 3-4, and Mettenberger, a cement-footed but big-armed passer with more negatives than positives. It's conceivable that half of Tennessee's six-man draft will wash out of the league before their rookie deals expire. The Titans have struggled to identify talent throughout Webster's tenure. I fully expect them to bring up the rear in the NFL's weakest division this year.

Grade: D
