The 2013 NFL Draft has come and gone, and now it’s time for some reflection. While some teams traded around to get who they want, others stood pat to see who would slide to them — and if there’s one thing to remember about this draft it’s players that slid around the rounds. But now that the draft is behind us, the all important grading phase has begun, so lets take a look at how the Tennessee Titans did in this year’s NFL Draft.
- Chance Warmack, guard, Alabama — Round 1 (10)
- Justin Hunter, wide receiver, Tennessee — Round 2 (34)
- Blidi Wreh-Wilson, cornerback, Connecticut — Round 3 (70)
- Zavier Gooden, linebacker, Missouri — Round 3 (97)
- Brian Schwenke, guard, Cal — Round 4 (107)
- Lavar Edwards, defensive end, LSU — Round 5 (142)
- Khalid Wooten, cornerback, Nevada — Round 6 (202)
- Daimon Stafford, safety, Nebraska — Round 7 (248)
Best Pick: Chance Warmack
After adding Andy Levitre in free agency, the Titans were able to continue their reconstruction of the offensive line by drafting one of the best offensive guard prospects to come around in the past decade. Warmack will help the Titans as they bring a new added toughness to the trenches and it was certainly a move that star running back Chris Johnson greatly appreciated.
Analysis: There is a good chance that the Titans top six players will have an impact on the team. Warmack and Schwenke are interior offensive linemen with a nasty mean stream who can start from day one, while Justin Hunter has the potential to develop in to a number one wide receiver. As far as Blidi Wreh-Wilson, he had generated some late first-round buzz, so the value on his pick was incredible. It was an overall great draft for the Titans.
