    Went with A-. We addressed our 2 biggest needs in the first 2 rounds, cost us some later picks which is a small price to pay. Getting Landry in the second is awesome.

    I went with B+. Only because I don’t know much of the last 2 guys, and I would have liked to add some other spots (couldn’t due to picks). That said, I love it. He went after his guys, and I’d rather have 4 picks that are quality and will be on this team, than 6 with a few useless dudes and missing out. Jrob crushed this!

    This was JR's best draft as a Titan.

    Not a huge fan of Rashaan, but he was the best available and we had to trade up to fill a need. I rather we had traded up a bit more and gotten Leighton though.

    On the other hand I love Landry, but I’m not happy we gave up so much with how little interest there was in this year’s pass rush.

    It really limited our draft potential, and if either of these guys don’t show up, the draft will most likely be a failure. There is a very small room for error.

    The other two picks are fine. Mariota has had some injury concerns, so not only is getting a back up a good idea, but I felt Falk was grossly underrated and can be the steal of the draft. Even if Mariota is a hundred percent healthy and playing to his full potential, I think this guy could be some nice trade bait in a few years that could give some nice draft picks in return.

    I would have liked a coupke extra picks. But with the free agents we got and what appear to be solid picks we certainly improved.

    Extra picks feel good, but we didn’t give up major picks honestly. Mid rounds, eh....Still had 4 and we maximized talent. Most drafts even with 7 or more picks, a bunch are useless, and we only had 6 to start. So we basically only lost 2 later mid-late picks, but got top tier talent after being back farther positiinally. I liked it!

    High risk, high reward. If we get 2 pro bowl guys out of it, great. Best draft ever. If Landry and Evan's don't become stars, it will be borderline bust since they cost us 2 picks each.

    We missed out on guys we showed a lot of interest in like Sweat because of all the trade ups, but it's hard to be mad when you look at the quality of this haul. And we didn't give up any future picks which is always a win - Jrob probably realized how devastating not having a 2nd rounder was last year.

    Its simple I would think. We basically gave away our later round picks for the chance to have two top 20 guys. Time will tell, but I am pretty excited and got 2 of the guys I wanted. Sometimes you need to take a chance.

    I love how everyone thinks they get steals or awesome players from rounds 4-7. Like the Colts, do we need a lead story on NFL.com about Cain being drafted in the 6th or how every NE player drafted is going to be a big impact guy? Also heard from ESPN how Pittsburgh got the steal of the draft by drafting the OSU QB in the 3rd round. Well if he was projected to go 3rd round then how is that a steal? Pretty disappointed NFL Network skipped right over us in the first round. ESPN is one thing, NFL Network should be fair to every team in the league.
