This is the Steelers. This is why Bleacherreport and rotoworld are garbage. Bias. They give optimistic views towards certain teams and negative to others.

Le'Veon Bell although hurt should make a push for the starting job and that it'll be a miracle if BWW somehow develops into a solid starter. Didn't think BWW did bad in preseason or is it just me? Still you don't come up with garbage like these clowns.

What exactly is inaccurate about what the article said regarding the Titans' rookies?

Warmack has been decent, and is adjusting to the NFL Right now. That's what the article says.

No other rookie on this team has made any kind of impact. Lavar Edwards was decent against Atlanta, but that's it.

Edwards and Warmack have been better than their grades. Edwards have to be a B along its Warmack. Saying someone doesn't have a shot to be a starter based off 3 preseason games. Yea that's inaccurate and dumb. V

Edwards hasn't done anything outside of against Atlanta, dunno how he'd rank as a B. Warmack being a solid grade wouldn't bring up what has so far been a lackluster class by himself.

The "no shot to be a starter" is a bit drastic, but Wilson has looked pretty bad, and that's why he's having trouble getting playing time.

The article is pretty much spot on, that drastic statement aside.

Have you not watched Edwards at all? He's made plays and gotten consistent pressure in every game he's played in. What the hell else do you expect of a 5th round pick? BWW hasn't gotten playing time because there's four other CBs in front of him who are better at the momemt. I'm not talking about overall team grade, just some individual grades.

Pacman also looked atrocious for the first year and a half until the light came on. After that, he was grading out as one of the top CBs in the NFL. So although this may be accurate about how BWW has looked so far, it's nearly irrelevant regarding his future.

Warmack and Edwards should be higher for sure.

They seem super harsh on late round guys. Not sure what they are expecting out of 6th/7th round picks...

Warmack is an f'n hog. Dude is going to be a monster for years to come and he's going to handle business for us this year when he settles down and gets used to the game speed at the pro level.

As far as the rest of the class, Bleacher isn't too far off on this one. I dislike these clowns as much as the next guy but lets be serious, our rookie class has been pretty underwhelming. Warmack has stood out but beyond him, Hunter has been wildly inconsistent and hasn't really played against anything but second and third stringers, Gooden has been hurt, BWW hasn't done anything impressive, Schwenke has barely played (but he's our C of the future regardless), Lavar has looked solid and at the moment the best value pick of the draft, Wooten hasn't done anything and Stafford has barely played. The only undrafted guy that has done anything noteworthy is Jack Doyle and as much as I love him, damn that drop a couple weeks back killed me. All in all, it's tough to evaluate our rookies when half of them have missed so much time but based on what we did see, I would have probably graded us in the C range too, just maybe not a C-.

While I was writing this I had a thought concerning Warmack. There's no debate he's going to be a great one and I'm in no way saying I'm not happy with the pick but because of how well Turner has played so far and by also having Levitre, Schwenke, Velasco and Spencer on the roster, does anyone else feel like if we had gone for one of the top DTs (Star for example), we would be a much scarier team this year? Warmack is an elite, kind of once in a while run blocker and he's a great long term pick but he's still got work to do in pass protection. Surely, we could have rolled with what we had on the interior this year and found a solid guard in next years draft, while adding an elite DT to this years team. Just some food for thought.

I'm just happy with a first rounder not busting. The fact that Warmack is what he was billed as and will be for a long time...is a great thing for the team. Time will tell.
