Draft=Success. On paper.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Chris Burke of Sports Illustrated absolutely loved our draft class and gave us an A-. Here's what he had to say about the class as a whole:

You know what? I loved this draft. G Chance Warmack might be the best player in the whole class, and Tennessee scored him at 10. The Titans kept right on rolling after that, with five more gems — WR Justin Hunter, CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson, OLB Zaviar Gooden (one of my favorite under-the-radar guys this year), C Brian Schwenke and DE Lavar Edwards. An interior defensive lineman would have been nice, but the Titans improved a bunch regardless. Grade: A-minus

Tennessee_titans_30x21 He is also a huge fan of the Warmack pick, giving it a solid A.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 s it too early for 2014 mock drafts? Yes. But what it's not too early for is college players to watch in 2013. I agree completely with his assessment of Johnny Manziel although I know people on here will disagree.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Adam Rank became one of my least favorite writers for NFL.com when he gave this as his bold prediction for the Titans.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 In$ider only unfortunately, but Bill Polian is also a big fan of the Warmack pick.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 PK talks about what the Titans could do in terms of usage for Zavier Gooden, the speedy linebacker from Mizzou we drafted in the 3rd round.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 PK also looks at how much in terms of value we got for the draft pick that netted us Justin Hunter, in the draft.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 The Titans added size, power and speed in the draft. The more I watch of Blidi Wreh-Wilson, the more I like. He could use a little more work on his tackling technique, but all the tools are there. Watch the Louisville game, he does a terrific game against one of college's premier QBs in Teddy Bridgewater.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 The Titans also looked at 3 FAs yesterday in Israel Idonije, Jason Allen, and Eric Winston. I really hope we sign Idonije, he would be a major boost to DE depth and add some productivity in rushing the passer and stopping rushers.

Quote of the Day: Not a direct quote, but on one of the radio shows yesterday Munch was asked to compare Justin Hunter to a current or former NFL player, and the radio hosts tried to coax him into saying AJ Green but Munch surprisingly replied with "Randy Moss". Yes. Just Yes. LWSS 2013
