In the future it will be impossible to talk about the best or worst players in this draft without mentioning Jake Locker. He will always be the standard by which this draft class is viewed, but for the sake of this post I am going to leave him out.

I think the best pick of this draft ends up being Jurrell Casey. Casey gives the Titans the bulk they need on the interior of the defensive line, and if they ever do decide they want to make the transition to a 3-4 defense he has the ability to play the nose.

It is hard for me to look at any of these picks and call them the worst pick of the draft. The one that surprised me the most was Jamie Harper. The kid has all of the measurables that you look for as far as size and speed, but the college production wasn't there as a tailback. Harper's best season in college was last year when he ran for 760 yards on 197 carries. Those numbers don't exactly jump off the page at you, but there is no doubt that he has the size the Titans are looking for in a guy to be a change of pace from Chris Johnson. I just hope this staff is smart enough to realize that they need to give someone else carries.   Plus anyone who flattens an Auburn defender is OK in my book.
