Matt Williamson of Scouts Inc., who is an excellent personnel guy, has graded every AFC teams moves in free agency (In$ider). He gave the Tennessee Titans a C. Click through the jump to read his analysis:

Analysis: The Titans certainly needed an upgrade on the interior of their offensive line and while Hutchinson isn't the world-beater that he once was, he is an improvement at the left guard slot. They also needed a huge upgrade with their pass-rush. Wimbley is better suited to playing outside linebacker in a 3-4 than the defensive end spot he will occupy in Tennessee's 4-3, but he can get after the quarterback. Tennessee needs to be careful not to overwork him. The cost of putting the franchise tag on a safety wasn't very high, but Griffin isn't among the best players at his position. Losing Finnegan and Jones does hurt the pass defense, so expect the Titans to further fortify their pass D early in the draft.

It does seem like a C is a pretty fair grade. I might have gone a little bit higher because I am really high on Wimbley, but max would be a B.

The most important thing is that they have filled a couple of the holes that they had heading into this offseason. A solid draft will make them a scary team.
