Did the Tennessee Titans build a championship roster in the offseason?

When I looked at the Titans roster before the draft, I was pretty optimistic about the group.

Here are the players I selected and the grades I gave them:

Quarterback: Will Levis (purple)
Offensive Playmakers: DeAndre Hopkins (green), Calvin Ridley (green), Tyjae Spears (purple)
Quality Offensive Linemen: Lloyd Cushenberry (green), Daniel Brunskill (yellow), Peter Skoronski (purple)
Pass Rushers: Jeffery Simmons (blue), Harold Landry (green)
Defensive Playmakers: L'Jarius Sneed (blue), Roger McCreary (green), Chidobe Awuzie (yellow)

That is two blues, five greens, two yellows, and three purples. I would summarize that as more proven veterans than question marks with some top-end talent at the top.

The big concern here is that some young guys are going to have to grow into these roles quickly. However, when you look at Will Levis, Tyjae Spears, and Peter Skoronski, there is a lot to like on tape, with additional consistency required.

We've since updated the way we view one of those players, with OTAs and minicamp adding more reason for optimism.

As constructed, I don't think that group would win a championship, but I think they are notably better than most national media predictions have for them this year.

We are talking about a roster that has great talent all over the field, even though there are admittedly some question marks on the roster.

The big question is whether the Titans fixed those issues in the draft.
