Ken Whisenhunt's Titans struggled to score on big plays.

Tennessee saw its fair share of ups and downs through the NFL draft weekend.

Over the last few days, Dave Guberman and I went through the first-, second-, fourth- and fifth- and sixth-round picks.

In our final instillation of “Under Review”, we graded the draft as a whole.

Dave Guberman: The Titans made safe and smart decisions as it relates to the roster and player personnel. Boosting the offensive line and running back with the first two picks was needed, especially if they want to give quarterback Jake Locker a legitimate chance to succeed. After that, they provided depth and youth to their already above average defense, which is also good.

I am still slightly concerned with the defensive back position, but we will see how that situation develops through training camp. I know that Mel Kiper gave the Titans a C+ draft grade, but I think that is a little low. If i had to give them a grade, I would probably give them a B or B-.

Raj Prashad: While the first round caught me by surprise, the rest of the draft played out like I expected it to. Loved snagging Bishop Sankey in the second round and the defensive picks through rounds four and five. Absolutely loved the value with Zach Mettenberger in the sixth round as well.

I’m not concerned at all with the lack of a pick at corner. There’s a reason Tennessee let Alterraun Verner walk. Guys like Blidi Wreh-Wilson and Tommie Campbell should step up big this season.

Overall, this draft gets a B- from me. Tennessee filled some spots of need, but there was no real splash in Ken Whisenhunt’s first draft with the Titans.
