Over the years, it has become commonplace for NFL draft pundits to post their immediate analysis and grades of NFL teams' selections both during and after each respective year's draft.
They question the value of the pick, whether the player was a reach or steal, if it fills a need and who else was on the board.
All are worthy queries to ask but always asked too soon. Most pundits explain their grades are speculative, because we have no idea how each player will perform in the NFL with their respective teams.
Over the course of a handful of slides, I will take us back to 2009 and evaluate how the last five drafts have panned out so far for the Tennessee Titans.
General manager Ruston Webster will be residing over his third draft in his current role after spending the previous two years as the team's vice president of player personnel.
This process will give us a bit of insight into Webster's first two NFL drafts and possibly hint at what's to come on May 8.
Picks will be evaluated on their value to the team in respect to their draft selection and to how much they help the Titans now. Whether a player became a starter will effect a draft's grade based on the round they were selected in.
For example a seventh-rounder who becomes a starter will be much more positively evaluated than a first-rounder.
