2014 NFL Draft – Complete Draft Grades: The Baltimore Ravens and the Tennessee Titans had the top drafts in the NFL.
The Ravens got good value and filled a need in the first round by picking Alabama ILB C.J. Mosley. They did the same thing in round two by drafting Florida State DT Timmy Jernigan. The Ravens hit again in the third round with their picks of safety Terrence Brooks, and TE Crockett Gillmore. Their fourth round pick of DE Brent Urban out of Virginia could the be the sleeper pick of their draft. Then the Ravens finished off their draft with four more value picks filling needs.

And OG David Yankey in the fifth and CB Anton Exum in the sixth, more good picks. The Vikings did a great job here.
The Titans pretty much hit on all of the picks for value and need. OT Taylor Lewan was good pick in the first round, and RB Bishop Sankey filled a need and for good value in the second. Fourth Rounders DT DaQuan Jones and Safety Marqueston Huff could have gone higher. ILB Avery Williamson was a good pick in the fifth, and they need a QB, and Zach Mettenberger has starter potential for a sixth round pick. This was an outstanding draft for the Titans.
