2011 NFL Draft Rumors: The Titans and Jake Locker

New, comments

For the millionth time, it is impossible to know what is true and what isn't this time of year, but there was something interesting in a chat that Rob Rang did Thursday at CBS Sports. He was asked about the Titans targeting Jake Locker with the 8th pick. Here was what he had to say:

I believe the Tennessee Titans are strongly considering Jake Locker. I sat next to Ruston Webster, among the key decision-members in their front office two years ago (he was with Seattle at the time) at UW-Cal, when Locker was outstanding. You could see his interest then. He seemed just as interested in Locker at his Pro Day.

I sure hope this is just a smokescreen because Locker isn't worth the 8th pick.  I am not sure he is worth any pick as a quarterback, but they would be giving up the shot to get a defensive player that could be a superstar to take an inaccurate passer.  Doesn't sound like a great strategy to me.
