    Tennessee Titans:

    Round 1, Pick 10: Chance Warmack, G, Alabama

    Round 2, Pick 34: Justin Hunter, WR, Tennessee

    Round 3, Pick 70: Blidi Wreh Wilson, CB, Connecticut

    Round 3, Pick 97: Zavier Gooden, OLB, Missouri

    Round 4, Pick 107: Brian Schwenke, C, California

    Round 5, Pick 142: Lavar Edwards, DE, LSU

    Round 6, Pick 202: Khalid Wooten, CB, Nevada

    Round 7, Pick 248: Daimion Stafford, S, Nebraska

    The Titans reshaped their offensive line this offseason and it looks like it is going to be pretty strong. They got some good defense players in this draft as well. Justin Hunter is a guy we will probably be seeing alot of. I think the Titans did very well.


    Indianapolis Colts:

    Round 1, Pick 24: Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida State

    Round 3, Pick 86: Hugh Thornton, OG, Illinois

    Round 4, Pick 121: Khaled Holmes, C, USC

    Round 5, Pick 139: Montari Hughes, DT, Tennessee-Martin

    Round 6, Pick 192: John Boyett, S, Oregon

    Round 7, Pick 230: Kerwynn Williams, RB, Utah State

    Round 7, Pick 254: Justice Cunningham, TE, South Carolina

    Looks like they wanted to get better up front, on offense and defense, and they accomplished that. I don't know anything about their late round picks.


    Jacksonville Jaguars

    Round 1, Pick 2: Luke Joeckel, LT, TXAM

    Round 2, Pick 33: John Cyprien, S, FIU

    Round 3, Pick 64: Dwayne Gratz, CB, Connecticut

    Round 4, Pick 101: Ace Sanders, WR/KR, South Carolina

    Round 5, Pick 135: Denard Robinson, RB/WR, Michigan

    Round 6, Pick 169: Josh Evans, S, Florida

    Round 7, Pick 208: Jeremy Harris, CB, New Mexico State

    Round 7, Pick 210, Demetrius McCray, CB, Appalachian State

    The Jaguars clearly wanted to upgrade their secondary. Three corners and two safeties. Denard Robinson and Ace Sanders are interesting players. They were smart to take Joeckel.

    Hags blew it by not taking Geno. Or maybe their plan is to tank this year and get tahj Boyd next draft.

    I like what both Tennessee and Jacksonville have done in the draft so far, but neither one of them have a quarterback. And I won't fear them until they do. Locker and Gabbert will never be good quarterbacks in the league.

    It's not that I like Locker, but I don't think he's as bad as we say he is. A decent OL can make us all change our minds about him. In addition to the Center & Guard they drafted, they've also picked up Livitre & Spencer this off season. That OL is going to get better.

    & if they can get decent production from CJ2ypc....

    I've been worried (needlessly) about the Titans for the last two years. Munchak ain't no fool, it's only a matter of time.

    I updated the picks.

    Alot of offensive linemen and secondary players coming in to the AFC South.

    Justin Hunter, Ace Sanders, and Denard Robinson are receivers that we may have to watch out for.

    JAX is calling Robinson a RB right now. Lots of McCluster comparisons. I think he is a hybrid player, but more of a RB than a WR.

    Titans should have one of the best O-lines in the league if their Tackles hold up. Two top Guards in Andy Levitre & Chance Warmack. Brian Schwenke looks like a good prospect at the center. Looks like they are gearing up for JJ Watt inside.

    I like Werner a lot, but I don't think the colts helped themselves much in the draft.

    I agree and I thought Werner was considered more of 4-3 DE.

    If they fix the O-line and have an above average defense, they will be a playoff team again.

    I think their first 3 or maybe even 4 picks were good.

    My general impression from reading the colts board is that they aren't thrilled with their draft. Some like it, some think it's ok...quite a few really dislike it...

    B was the highest grade I saw given by their fans in the site I went to.

    But who knows....if just one guys plays really well he could make the whole draft...

    I think the Texans and the Titans did the most to improve themselves this off season. Colts not so much, and the Jags will still occupy 4th place in our division when it's over with.

    Doesn't hurt to have a couple guys named Munchak and Matthews coaching them either. Oh yeah, and some guy named Johnson running the ball. Should be an interesting division next year with the improvements Indy and TN have made. If Gabbert becomes a player we could have one of the toughest in the league.

    Holding my breath starting...NOW!

    I don't think I've ever seen a QB that's as skeerd as Gabbert back there. Not even our old #8. He's that bad!

    Texans filled some real holes this draft with players that match exactly what they want to do. A

    Titans- Addressed OL big time. Question is going to be how much will this really help a team that has a young QB that just isn't really that good. B

    Jags - Maybe with Joeckel they'll finally have solid play from the T spot. Did get a few playmakers outside, it wouldn't surprise me to see Henne get the starting nod though. C

    Colts - At face value this looks like a lackluster draft, but honestly I just don't know the team well enough to say one way or the other if they addressed glaring needs. I do know that Freeney's departure and maybe Mathis seem imminent. Werner addressed that. I do know they have the best QB in the division and that counts for quite a bit. C-

    I'm very happy with the Texans draft, I think the first 3 picks are all solid. Time will tell on the others, and while I think Bonner was a dumb pick, I don't really care all that much because it was a 6th. I'd give them an A- for this draft. I expect good things from those top 3 picks.

    I love the fact that the Jags just spent the 2nd overall pick on a RT. Sure he can become a LT, but that will mean they let their LT go in free agency next year, opening up another hole at OT for them. The Jags went into this draft with the worst pass rush in the NFL, and they came out of it with ZERO pass rushers. HAHAHAHAHA! Love it. F for them, but it could turn into an A if they win the QB sweepstakes next year.

    The Colts are moving to a 3-4, and they have a terrible LB corps to do it. Mathis is their only OLB worth a ****, and they drafted ZERO LBs in this draft. They are going to get torn up by running teams. Their secondary isn't that great, and they didn't address that much either. I don't think they got much better with this draft, but considering how far back they were drafting I would give them a C.

    The Titans gave up the most points in the league last year, and they didn't really address their areas of need early. Warmack will be a good guard, but that really wasn't a big need. Hunter is a nice pick where they got him because who knows how long Britt will be playing for them. They got a couple of good players, but I don't think they really made a huge impact on their team, so I'd give it a C.

    There is absolutely no good reason for the Texans not to repeat as division champs this year, none of these teams got considerably better.

    The thing with the Titans draft is they have mentioned a Zone blocking system yet they draft a guard in the top ten who realistically can not run the ZBS. Was a move that reeked of desperation. I get a draft is more than just the first round but that pick makes little sense.

    Can't even lie, the titans had a helluva draft. Only time will tell if Locker is the answer at qb......early returns aren't positive.
