TITANS' BEST CLASS: 1983
The Titans are the sixth-best drafting franchise overall, according to ESPN Stats and Information's rating system, but are the only one of the six not to win a Super Bowl. The franchise has drafted seven Hall of Famers, second only to the Steelers (10).There have been bumps in the road (the franchise was the worst drafting team in the NFL in the 1990s). It has improved since the team moved to Tennessee in 1997 as the Oilers (becoming the Titans in 1999).
