    SUMMARY: Despite not knowing how a drafted player will workout for about three years, many of the national sports publications released their grades today on the Titans draft. Here are a few comments from those articles.Jarrett Bell, USA Today"Norm Chow won't be reunited with Matt Leinart but gets to mold one of the draft's most electric athletes in QB Vince Young. Chow will be reunited with power back LenDale White, who will have much to prove after sliding down the charts."

    They are right about the busts. But they won't happen, I am positive. Well I am positive about LenDale White, no one knows about Young, yet.

    Gives and A slash D. What is that? He needs to make up his mind.

    Dan pompei thinks that white is a huge risk at 45?

    None of these idiots even adressed the other picks and none even bothered to mention our move down from 39 to 45 that got us a 4th rd pick and still netted us white. That was key!

    Mel Kiper is worse. On ESPN Insider his grades range from a B+ to a C-. No A's, No D's and no F's.

    No spine.

    He obviously likes the picks, but understands the risks.

    Maybe they had to write blurbs for the other 31 teams in the league. Damn those idiots!!!

    If these guys really were that good they would be GMS and they are trying to take the middle of the road because they work with all these teams and need to keep a good relationship. This draft gives us hope to get back on top. No one knows how any of these guys will turn out but I love our draft.

    Jeff thanks for all your effort on our behalf this weekend. You were on top of the draft and gave us much better info on our picks than NFL Net. or ESPN. You gave up your weekend and I cant imagine how much work this was it is GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!

    I agree with Tide to a point. Giving a range like A to D- is somewhat of a cop out. These guys should rate the draft based on how they feel the prospects are going to compete. Saying A to D- is not a judgement call at all. Tide is right, being able to move down, grab an extra 4th and still get White was a great move to get a guy who was rated as high as mid 1st by alot of "experts".

    Of course not, an A would require you draft exactly as in his mockdraft or strictly according to his big board. An F would have to be the exact opposite.

    I love our picks! I'd rather swing for the fences, then settle for a bunt and play it safe. Vince is a home run pick in my opinion.
