2013 NFL Draft grades: Mel Kiper likes the Titans class

USA TODAY Sports

There are going to be a lot of draft grades floating around out there in the next couple of days. Since you really can't grade a draft class for at least two years, these grades don't mean anything, but they are still interesting to read.

Mel Kiper has released his draft grades (In$ider), and for once, he was really impressed with what the Titans did. Now that means absolutely nothing because two years ago he said they would be in the position to draft Andrew Luck, but it is still fun to read positive things about this team.

Kiper broke his grades down into need, value and overall. He gave the Titans a A- need, a B in value and a B+ overall. That means that Ruston Webster really nailed this draft on all fronts- at least according to Kiper.

Here were his comments:

The Titans may not have any idea what will become of Jake Locker. I don't know either. But they sure as heck should be better running the ball in 2013 behind the line they're building, and between whatever pressure that takes off Locker and the addition of yet another receiver, they can say they gave him a chance. Chance Warmack is one of the more dominating run-blockers to enter the league in years. Between him and Andy Levitre, the Titans are really good at guard. Tennessee also added a nasty center in Brian Schwenke in Round 4. Justin Hunter gives them another deep threat, so they now have Kenny Britt, Hunter, Kendall Wright, Nate Washington and Delanie Walker, as well as Chris Johnson and Shonn Greene. If Locker struggles early, maybe it's Ryan Fitzpatrick's team, because somebody can work with this offensive talent. Blidi Wreh-Wilson gives them the corner they needed. I had defensive end as a big need and Lavar Edwards was a steal in the fifth. I thought they did pretty well overall.

There is going to be a lot of pressure on Locker from the time that training camp opens. Hopefully he is up to the challenge.
