So going into last night the Titans were really a wildcard, they could have done anything. And they did something that shocked almost all of us by drafting Taylor Lewan. It will be very interesting to see when Lewan sees the field, as he's obviously the LT of 2015, but you know what? It is 2014.

Sidenote: Vikings or Rams had the best drafts. Vikings get a guy they think can be a stud on their defense and get the best player in the draft in Bridgewater. The Rams get Aaron Donald, the best interior DL in this draft and arguably the best tackle in the draft. I'll believe it when I see it though, that the Rams are a playoff team.

I will say that I think Lewan will become a very very good left tackle in the NFL. However, he has some alleged off field issues that I have a tough time rooting for him, and Jimmy outlines my feelings on him perfectly in this post.

Pete Prisco gives us a C grade with Lewan, even though he gives the Sparkling Kitties an A for Bortles.

Here lies a phone interview with the new Titan, Taylor Lewan.

Glennon and Wyatt think the Titans could go QB tomorrow, so they could complete the worst case scenario for us by taking Carr.

Taylor sold Ruston and Ken on his character, well you've got the rest of your career to do that with me.

Todd McShay REALLY likes our pick of Lewan.

So we took Lewan in the 1st, and do not have a 3rd round pick. It is a very scary possibility that we only get 1 starter out of the first three rounds in 2014, in a division where it is ripe for the picking to go out and win, or compete for a wildcard spot.

Ruston Webster will keep an open mind for the next pick. Good grief I hope I like it better than the last one.

Here's a video of Webster, Whiz, and Jason Michael talking on the phone with Lewan before the pick was announced.

Wyatt says that Lewan is a solid pick but we still need a QB. You know not what you wish for Jim.

First Round Grade gave us an A- for the pick.

Webster and Whiz address the media on the pick. Our offensive line is gonna be silly good in 2015, but again, its 2014.

Guys I'd like for us to draft in the second round (SOMEONE FROM THIS LIST PLEASE): Jordan Matthews, Ra'Shede Hageman, Kyle Van Noy, Louis Nix, Allen Robinson, Demarcus Lawrence. To a lesser extent: Tre Mason and Carlos Hyde.
