The NFL Draft is over, which means draft grades are being handed out. Useless at this point, as they essentially confirm which teams got the players you like. Of course no one knows anything about the draft, so this is a particularly useless exercise. All that said, the Titans graded well. Hopefully the true grade of this class in a couple years mimics the current grades.
Four players were waived off the roster on Monday. No word if they waved back. h/t @BigJoeOnTheGo
A.J. Brown’s press conference with the Eagles was yesterday, and the visual of him in Eagles’ green was a bit unsettling. At some point the shock will wear off, but not yet.
The biggest question after the draft is “how do the Titans make up for the loss of Brown” says Turron Davenport. I think that’s a very fair question. Did they? We’ll find out in the fall.
In the NFL.com power rankings, the Titans dropped 6 spots. Definitely deserved in my opinion as they are betting heavily on potential instead of a proven star.
Adam Schein loves the Malik Willis pick, saying that other teams will regret passing on him.
In the 5th round of the draft, the Titans picked Kyle Phillips from UCLA. Steve Smith Sr. loves him as a route runner, and I think that’s what makes him such a good fit with the Titans’ offense. They (and Tannehill) thrive when guys are at the right spot at the right time. That’s why there were so many issues with the offense when guys missed time because they didn’t know the playbook and timing as well as they should have and it put the team in bad spots. I’m excited to see Treylon, Bobby, and Kyle get to work.
