    Just a quick summary of what other think of the Titans taking Chance Warmack:

    SI.com (Chris Burke):Grade: A. This might end up going down as one of the best picks in the draft. The Titans let a little bit of chaos ensue above them, then grabbed perhaps the best lineman available ......

    CBSSportsline (Pete Prisco) :disappointed: : Grade C-. I don't like this pick. He's a good player, but they had so many other needs. He will be good for Chris Johnson, but worth this spot?

    SBNation (Dan Kadar): Grade: B+. The only real quibble with this pick is that the Titans signed guard Andy Levitre in free agency. The Titans needed to improve the interior of their offensive line, so these moves accomplish it. But they'll now have a lot of money tied into the position. Warmack is a good power blocker, so he's a natural for the right side.

    FirstRoundGrade.com (Bryan Perez): Grade A. The Titans revamped the interior of their offensive line in one offseason. With Levitre signed via free agency, the addition of Chance Warmack gives the Titans the best young guard duo in the NFL. Warmack WILL be a pro bowler who will pave the way for Chris Johnson and his successors for years to come. Much like Cooper going to the Cardinals, selecting a guard won’t sell a lot of jerseys. But it’s going to lead to a much more productive offense in Tennessee.

    Athlon (Braden Gall) :beerbang: : Grade A+. The Titans running game has no excuses now that Chance Warmack and free agent signings Andy Levitre and Shonn Greene are coming to town. Warmack is a war-daddy of an offensive lineman who has little to no downside whatsoever. He is big, physical, nasty and has done nothing but win, and win big. The road grader will be in the starting lineup in Week 1. Titans running back Chris Johnson said it best on Twitter immediately following Warmack's selection: "THANK GOD."

    Yes, yes we did!

    Warmack could be the best player out of this draft when it is all said and done.

    Not only did we revamp our O line, giving CJ all the help possible, we helped neutralize JJ watt the best we can.

    It was no question the right pick. So proud of our FO for making it. Even if we suck this year they should keep their jobs. They've gone above and beyond what I dreamed they could do. If the rest of this draft goes as well I'll feel confident enough to say we'll be a playoff team, period.

    Gotta make sure we have a viable QB. This all lays on Locker and the offensive coordinator

    It was the absolute right pick, and I'm glad we had the balls to do it.

    I know It's illogical to put all my hopes on one game but Jake really showed me something in that Lions game. If he can play at least that well consistently, the sky is the limit.
