Let's start with the positives here.  Ruston Webster did a pretty good job in the 2014 draft.  Taylor Lewan looks like he is going to be a franchise left tackle.  Marqueston Huff looks to be coming around.  Avery Williamson has been a solid addition.  The jury is still out on Bishop Sankey, but he at least has a chance.  I would give Ruston a solid B on his draft efforts.

Free agency, however, is a different story.  Dexter McCluster was brought in to be a difference maker, but he didn't make a difference at all this year.  Wesbter gave Michael Oher a bunch of money to play right tackle.  Oher was bad in Baltimore last year, and he was bad in Tennessee this year.  That is what we call a pattern.  Charlie Whitehurst is probably the gem of this free agent class.  Let that sink in for a minute.

This roster is terrible and Webster has a lot to do with it.  I would say that he doesn't have a vision.  That leads me to give him a D for his overall performance.  Hopefully Tommy Smith feels the same way.
