Ken O'Brien Has High Praise for Jake Locker

Jim Wyatt had the chance to talk to Ken O'Brien who has been coaching Jake Locker since his season ended at Washington. O'Brien had a lot of good things to say about Locker. The main thing that he talked about, and the thing that has me the most excited, was Locker's desire to get better. Wyatt's article is the latest in a string of articles that makes you think Locker will end up being a good pick for the Titans.

This was my favorite quote from the article:

"You hear the criticisms and the concerns, but when I have him on the field, I think he gets better and better all the time. He has shown me nothing but getting better every day," O’Brien said. "He is a special football player and I think it is a great situation for both. … I think he’ll give them the stability they need moving forward and will fit in with those guys very well."

Stability at the quarterback position is what sets up a team for consistent success, and it is something the Titans haven't had since Steve McNair left.
