With Justin Hunter, Bishop Sankey gone, second round a Titans wasteland

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- For the Tennessee Titans, the second round of the draft has been a wasteland.

With Justin Hunter (2013) and Bishop Sankey (2014) waived, the roster now has no second-round picks drafted by the Titans outside of the three rookies selected in the spring.

It's the largest of all the indictments of former general manager Ruston Webster, who now works for Thomas Dimitroff as a national scout in Atlanta.

Not only are all of Webster's second-round picks gone, but the Titans are also cutting last year's third-rounder, offensive lineman Jeremiah Poutasi.

In Webster's drafts from 2011-15, he had 12 picks inside the top 100. Eight of them are gone: Receiver Dorial Green-Beckham (traded), Poutasi, Sankey, Hunter, cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson, linebackers Zaviar Gooden and Zach Brown, and defensive lineman Mike Martin.

Those picks -- 40th, 60th, 54th, 34th, 70th, 97th, 52nd and 82nd -- need to be the core of the team, not playing elsewhere or heading out of the league.

Four of Webster's five first-rounders remain: quarterback Marcus Mariota, left tackle Taylor Lewan, right guard Chance Warmack and receiver Kendall Wright.
