Adoree' Jackson leads a Titans rookie class full of contributors, potential

Here's a look at the first-half impact of the Tennessee Titans draft class:

Corey Davis, WR, first round: A significant hamstring injury has kept Davis off the field for most of the season. He has a golden chance during the second half of the season to prove he can be the Titans' No. 1 receiver. His game has translated well to the NFL in his brief action, but we need to see more of him. Grade: Incomplete

Adoree' Jackson, CB/RET, first round: Jackson's ball skills and athleticism jump off the screen when watching Titans tape. He still has plenty of room to grow, but Jackson is a full-time rookie starter at cornerback and returner for a potential playoff team. He's looked good doing both. Grade: Above average

Taywan Taylor, WR, third round: You can't teach speed and big-play ability. Taylor's 53-yard touchdown against the Colts was an example of his skills at work. The Titans would love to see more consistent production and playing time as the season goes on, which is why he doesn't get a near perfection grade. Grade: Above average

Jonnu Smith, TE, third round: Smith, who has two touchdowns this season, is a receiving tight end who has shown spurts of being a mismatch for defenders. His blocking could be better and his production has been limited playing behind one the NFL's best tight ends, Delanie Walker. Grade: Average

Jayon Brown, LB, fifth round: Brown has been Tennessee's best value pick of the 2017 draft, proving it with his stout coverage ability and sideline-to-sideline speed. He's forcing his way onto the field and could become a starter in 2018. Grade: Above average

Corey Levin, OG, sixth round: Levin, a healthy scratch for most of the season, is getting a redshirt year. The Titans like his versatility and potential. He could end up being a key reserve in 2018. Grade: Bring on 2018

Josh Carraway, OLB, seventh round: Carraway showed some potential in the preseason and even made the Titans' initial 53-man roster before landing on the practice squad. He seems like an ideal candidate to jump from practice squad to active roster in 2018, if he can grow. Grade: Incomplete

Brad Seaton, OL, seventh round: Seaton's size makes him a project, and the Titans hope to mold him while he's on their practice squad. Grade: Incomplete

Khalfani Muhammad, RB, seventh round: Muhammad had a rough preseason as he adapted to the NFL game. The Titans hope his reps with the practice squad will lead to him being a potential factor on their 2018 roster. Grade: Incomplete
