1st Round 10th Overall — Chance Warmack OG, Alabama — B+

The only think keeping this pick from being an A was that I think the 10th pick is a little early for a guard. However Warmack was top 3 if not the top player on almost every big board. He will immediately boost what was a poor interior part of the offensive line from last year.

2nd Round 34th Overall — Justin Hunter WR, Tennessee — A

Hunter may be the best deep ball receiver in this draft. He is tall, fast and has the ability to go up and get the ball. Before his knee injury he was a potential top 10 pick. They had to get Locker some more weapons to help him and Hunter is a great weapon.

3rd Round 70th Overall — Blidi Wreh-Wilson CB, Connecticut — A-

Wreh-Wilson was being talked about as a late 1st/early 2nd round prospect. The Titans grabbed him in the 3rd round which is a great value. Cornerback was also a position of need for the Titans so this was a great pick.

3rd Round 97th Overall — Zaviar Gooden OLB, Missouri — A-

Gooden is an absolutely great athlete. He is as fast as most running backs and receivers. He hasn’t shown great instincts, but if he sees the play he can get there as quick as anyone in the draft. This give the Titans the most athletic linebacker group in the league.

4th Round 107th Overall — Brian Schwenke C, Cal — A

Schwenke was a steal in the 4th round. I had him rated as a late 2nd round guy. The Titans were serious about making the interior of their offensive line better and helping Jake Locker out. They got 2 new starting guards and a new center this offseason.

5th Round 142nd Overall — Lavar Edwards DE, LSU — B+

The Titans needed some depth at the defensive end position and Edwards has a lot of talent, even though he wasn’t a started at LSU. He had a lot of talent in front of him, so that isn’t an indictment of his talent.

6th Round 202nd Overall — Khalid Wooten CB, Nevada — B+

The Titans needed help at the CB position and they took 2 of them in this draft. Wooten made plays for the Wolfpack for the last 2 years. I had him rated as a mid round prospect so this is a good value as well.

7th Round 248th Overall — Daimion Stafford SS, Nebraska — B

Is a big bodied safety at 6′ 220 lbs who needs to work on his game when the ball is in the air. He plays aggressively and will lay a receiver out when he goes over the middle.

Overall — A

I really liked this draft for the Titans. They got 2 great lineman to plug in right away and help protect Jake Locker. They got him a deep threat who could have been a top 10 pick if not for a knee injury. Wreh-Wilson is a early 2nd round talent who they got at a position of need in the 3rd round. Gooden gives them an extremely athletic linebacker who can cover tight ends and running backs as well as chance plays down. Jake Locker and Chris Johnson have to have watched this draft and been smiling the whole time and who can blame them.
