Mel Kiper 2019 NFL Draft grades

NCAA Football: Mississippi at Vanderbilt Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

There is nothing better than grading a draft just hours after it is over, right? Of course it is ridiculous, but it’s fun to get all fired up about nonetheless #amirite. Today we are looking at Mel Kiper’s grade for the 2019 Titans draft.

Kiper gave the Titans a B. Here is part of what he had to say about their class:

I liked the pick of wide receiver A.J. Brown in the middle of Round 2 (No. 51). With Marcus Mariota in a contract year, it’s important to surround him with weapons to figure out whether they want to invest $100 million guaranteed. Brown could be a solid No. 2 receiver. Nate Davis (No. 82) started at guard for three seasons in college before playing right tackle as a senior. His best spot at the next level is inside. Amani Hooker (No. 116) is a solid deep safety who will contribute on special teams. D’Andre Walker (No. 168) is toolsy, but you wonder why he didn’t produce at Georgia.

It’s odd to me that he says that about Walker. Of course there is going to be some question about an EDGE guy with tools that is taken in the 5th round. When you get to the 5th round all you want is a guy that has a chance to develop into something. Walker is certainly that.

We will have a poll later today for you to grade the Titans draft.
