New, comments

Todd McShay has some love for Justin Hunter and some non-love for Zaviar Gooden.

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE

Todd McShay hasn't put out any draft grades per-say, but he has put out his best and worst picks for each team (In$ider). He really likes the Justin Hunter pick for the Titans. He does not so much like the Zaviar Gooden pick. Here is his commentary:

Best pick: WR Justin Hunter (No. 34 overall) -- Getting Hunter at No. 34 was a good move. I wish he were stronger and more physical, but I think he can be a big-time impact receiver in the NFL. We had a first-round grade on him. He's a 6-4 receiver who has body control and good acceleration. He can also climb the ladder, adjust in the air and make the acrobatic catch on 50-50 jump balls. His overall ball skills are inconsistent right now. The Titans are getting weapons on offense, with G Chance Warmack and free-agent G Andy Levitre to help Chris Johnson and Jake Locker. And when you pair Hunter with Kenny Britt, they'll scare some defenses.

Questionable pick: OLB Zaviar Gooden (No. 97 overall) -- Gooden is a classic height, weight, speed guy. He has shown flashes of excellence at times, but lacks ideal instincts and takes inconsistent angles, which can lead to too many missed tackles.

If, IF, Kenny Britt can stay healthy this season, the Titans could have a scary receiver corps for the first time ever.
