    Curious to know who your best or worst pick of the draft was based on value.

    Best - Malik Willis
    Worst - Theo Jackson

    I have to go with Malik Willis as being the pick that had me the most excited, due to where we got him. He literally was mocked at #8 to the Falcons in many mock drafts and we got him where we did. Just perfect value with some crazy potential if he pans out.

    The Theo pick just didn't get me that excited. I'll have to look more into him. Not a bad value pick, but I would've went with Verone McKinney or a Guard with this, especially since Theo was projected to be an UDFA.

    I love Burks and the TE pick but I agree on Willis my favorite pick. Worst pick to me last 2 picks together, we can get sign people better than them. We should have taken a guard

    Malik is the easy answer for best value, but I'm going to go a different route.

    Best - Kyle Phillips - He was a dude that I really liked, but I thought we'd need to take in the 3rd. And I didn't really want to do that. He's a steal in the 5th. I think he'll contribute next year.

    Worst - Theo - I don't even hate the pick, but I would have taken Lecitus Smith, the guard from Virginia Tech, who went 11 picks later.

    Best is a tie between Chig and Philips honestly. Both are hugely underrated and will contribute this year.

    Worst is probably Theo. I get that he’s a Cruikshank replacement, but there were some other guys there I really liked.

    I’m happy to see we have a diversity of opinion on best value. Shows to me we got some real upside 1-5. Needless to say we can live without McCreary, Willis or Petit-Frere not performing next season, but Burks is a must. He does not have to be AJ Brown but he has to be a plus offensively for us to go somewhere.

    I’ve read so much on him with running back type instincts, I hope we get creative with ways to get him the ball (insert @KyTitansFan Downing comment here :) maybe the new dude from the Texans will do for us what Schwartz did defensively.

    Idk about best and worst exactly.

    I was really hoping we got Burks, and the value of the Willis pick towards the end of the 3rd round is huge.

    Overall i liked our draft

    Wanted to like the Burks pick more but still a sour taste from the AJ trade - woulda absolutely loved it A+ if AJ was still here and they still got Burks somehow.

    Mcreary was like the Monty Rice pick … kinda meh. Didn’t fill a need and kinda tips their hand on Farley? Either way makes the unit even better so it’s whatever.

    Almost everyone will like the Willis pick so that’s too easy.

    I ended up loving the TE pick more than I thought I would - after hearing he was one of if not the fastest TE in this class. Sounds like he wasn’t used much in college though which should be the case with this franchise as well - but another weapon is welcomed.

    Best- Konk and Pierre. Team actually needed TE and OL before the draft started.
    Least- ask me after the next year or two.

    I can honestly say, I’m not onboard that the willis pick was that great. He may turn out good but the fact he fell that far and all these comparisons to QB we know can’t win SB, I’m not sure how excited I should get.
    I’m not sure the Titans needed a QB this year since the QB market wasn’t as stacked as some other years and we knew THill was going to be the starter. This COULD open the door to moving on from him next year but I’m not counting on Willis being the reason we move on.

    Bring on the comments.

    Based solely on value:

    Best: Willis
    Worst: McCreary

    I would have taken Trent McDuffie with the first pick and made sure we got Christian Watson with our next.

    McDuffie & Watson > Burks & McCreary

    We will see who was right.

    I'm not up enough on all of the players drafted to say best or worst, but from what I've seen so far the draft certainly turned out better that the dumpster fire it appeared to be Thursday night.
    I have couple of takeaways from this if you read between the lines–
    A.J. had great chemistry with Ryan, and unless they had issues we weren't aware of, I cannot imagine Robinson jeopardizing that with an A.J. trade unless they knew Tannehill's time here is now limited. At the very least, they are putting this squarely on Ryan to create chemistry with four new weapons he's never thrown a pass to before. I think it's possible, but I am suspect of Downing's offense. I hope they shake that up some with the new guy from the Texans added to the offensive staff. I also hope they are able to get better O-line production, otherwise it may be a frustrating season with a future star waiting in the wings.
    For sure, if Tannehill is on the hot seat, Downing should be as well- we had a championship defense last year- best I can remember in Tennessee.
