I think Warmack could easily be a game changer for them in not only the running game, but in the passing game.



That's not really sound logic either. The same could be said about Andre Johnson. It's not like we had a QB that was worthy of throwing him balls at the time, and it doesn't make the pick bad by any means. The Titans can't control what QBs are available via the draft. They improved their offensive line and gave him another weapon to help him develop. Locker is still a young player.



Corners, like wide receivers, usually don't have great rookie years. It's a transition process for corners to not use their hands so much, as we have seen with our own players. This guy has the potential to be a starter pretty early on in his career. To get a guy that you feel comfortable with playing nickelback in TC in the 3rd round is great, in my opinion.



Well, many people thought Schwenke was the best center prospect and the Titans got him in the 4th round. The Cowboys drafted the #1 center prospect (universally viewed as a third rounder) in the first round.

I don't really look at drafts for what they do for the team next year, but rather what it means for 4 years. I think they got 2 starting offensive linemen that are projected to be good players, a corner that could develop into a starter by end of his rookie year potentially. A wide receiver that could develop into a top 10 or 15 receiver in the league.

It's hard to grade any draft, because it is all about projections. Nobody claims to know what is going to happen in the future, we can only go off of the information that is available today. Seems like a good draft to me.

Having said that, the Titans will most definitely be better next year on offense. With these 2 rookies and the addition of Levitre, their running game is going to be alot more dangerous. That's great for them, because they need to put CJ's talents to use before he moves on.
I wish I had read your posts before posting. LOL
