Arguably the most anticipated draft in Tennessee Titans history is complete. We can now only sit back and wait to see how this pans out, but as a whole, it looks like a good draft by the team. There was a clear theme and plan by the team, and it appears that they executed it very well.

Overall, There is a glaringly obvious theme that jumps out immediately--offense. The big pick was Marcus Mariota. After that, the plan was to give him everything that you could through the draft. It is commendable work by the Titans. The team has struggled on offense for years now, and by trying to rebuild the offense around your new franchsie quarterback, they just might have found a fix. The first thing that I think when I look at this class is the word "toughness." How many times over the years have we said that the team lacks an identity? This draft looks like an attempt to create one. Poutasi is a mauler, Cobb is a tough runner, and Fowler is another very physical football player. The Patriots showed us the blueprint to taking the Colts down--run them over with your physicality. The Titans have not only made a strong attempt at doing this, but they also built something around Marcus Mariota immediately, which is the biggest positive of all. As far as grades, any draft that includes a franchise Quarterback gets a giant A from me. The Titans should be very happy with how this weekend went.
