    My biggest concern is that we drafted a lot of very raw, athletic players. If they pan out, it likely won't be this year. I still think the Titans' vision is looking to peak in 2-3 years. If so, this draft is fine.

    Wright/Martin will contribute right away, everyone else is special teams or depth at best this year.

    I agree with that. Wright will likely boot Mariani from return duties and also compete with Wash/ Williams for 2nd and 3rd WR, Assuming KB takes back #1. Zach brown has a lot of potential, and I envision him being a nick LB with Mccarthy, and Ayers rushing on 3rd (this is why I think we didn't pick a DE earlier)
    Mike Martin is a good football player with a great motor. He excels at the point of attack. Somebody said Klug in Caseys body...that is a great way of putting it.

    The only thing I don't like are all the db's we drafted I like the players but drafting 3 dbs was bit much,I wanted to see how Tommie Campbell panned out.Our first 3 picks are A+'s.A lot of people are complaining about Zach Brown he is a rare LB with the ability to become special. I'm glad we did go DE early and did not draft OL. OUR OL will be good we just need continuity. I'm not ready to give up on our DL either, we haven't seen what morgan can do yet and I want to see what our FA pick up can do. I think we can be 10+ win team with our roster.

    Solid B. I'm pretty high on Zach Brown, but kinda wanted Still when he still there. I also like Markelle and Mike Martin. I have seen a lot of mock drafts with Markelle in the 3rd and we got him in the 6th. Good value there and a lot of upside. I would still like to see a S in the 1st or 2nd next year though with a deep S class. I think Kendall Wright can put our offense over the top as well.

    I'm going to go with C.

    Wright might not have been the best pick, but he should help the team immediately. Brown may or may not make an immediate impact. High risk, high reward. Martin should contribute immediately at DT. Nice pick. Sensebaugh seems like a stretch. He might be something down the road, but I don't think he makes the team better in 2012. Thompson is a high risk, high reward pick. I don't think he makes the team better in 2012. I think Markelle Martin is a value pick. I don't know anything about the DE. I'm fine with the pick.

    At the end of the team, I feel like we lost some ground to some of our competitors.

    Looking at things positively, the FO appears to feel that we can afford to take some risks.

    Rating the draft so soon, especially by fans, is a pretty pointless task. I'll just say I'm overall pretty happy with it. I'm especially excited about our 1st and 3rd round picks. I do think we reached on some picks, but what do I know? It's not as if the FO is purposely trying to sabotage the team. They obviously had the players they took rated highly enough to warrant drafting them where they did. I trust they are better judges of NFL prospects than us message boarders. I remember thinking "who?!?" when we drafted McCarthy and Klug last year as well.

    If I could change one thing though, I would've taken Konz instead of Brown in the 2nd. But, again, I trust that Munchak, Matthews, and the rest of the FO are better judges of offensive lineman than I am. So clearly there was something they did or didn't see in Konz that made them avoid him.
