We are several weeks removed from the 2015 NFL Draft, so people are starting to look more towards the future and look less at the past. However, NFL.com just released a ranking of where every team would rank based on Gil Brandt's top 100.
Now, obviously there is an issue here given that it isn't a composite ranking that takes multiple views into account. Having said that, we have all seen draft grades in the past and know they are subjective, but a 1-32 ranking of all the teams is interesting.
Here is what was said about the Titans and where they ranked:
Tennessee Titans rank: 13
"The Titans look to have an excellent value with fifth-round pick David Cobb; he was drafted 138th overall, but was 86th on Brandt's list. Their other three Hot 100 players were a bit overdrafted, though, going by Brandt's rankings: QB Marcus Mariota went second overall, WR Dorial Green-Beckham 40th and OL Jeremiah Poutasi 66th."
Saying a player is overdrafted if it is by just a few spots, is sort of a foolish thing to say. Players are drafted more by range/grade rather than an exact vertical ranking system. This running backs, defensive tackles and wide receivers always slip in the draft. Depth of the class determines where a player is drafted so if the Titans didn't draft DGB, they might have been able to add a higher ranked tight end, but that doesn't make it a better value for the team.
All in all, I have been very vocal about this saying that I think this Titans class has the potential to be the best class in the whole draft if they hit on their boom or bust picks. Honestly, I would rather have a situation like that then a draft class full of mediocre talent that doesn't have a chance to propel this team forward.
