    With the eighth overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Tennessee Titans select Washington QB Jake Locker. Locker decided to return for his senior season and his erratic performance has certainly hurt his draft stock. An extremely gifted athlete, Locker's production does not match his talent. He possesses a cannon for an arm, but he is not an efficient passer. At this point, his greatest asset is his athleticism and it is unclear if he will ever be a starting quarterback at the next level. Also, Locker has a history of injuries due to his aggressive style of play.

  2. Called it......

    But no way did I expect Locker to come off the board before Blaine Gabbert.

    Surprising pick for where it occurred...I thought the Titans would trade down if they were going to take Locker.

    Shocker of the draft. too high

    I liked when Gruden compared him to Gannon. I would've had a great line to respond to that.

    Reach... but let's be realistic. So was Newton and Gabbert. Only time will tell if any of these guys were worth it (like every other draft pick ever selected).
  7. love ittttttttttttttt

    gonna order my jersey as soon as I find out what his number will be.

    They couldn't have traded down. Washington wanted him.
  8. I think the term "reach pick" should be thrown out this year because the draft came before free agency this year.

    Ponder at No. 12 was more of a shock but they needed a QB so I can understand.

    Not if the Redskins or Vikings wanted him.

    Oh, absolutely. They were all reaches. Teams took QBs too high because they needed QBs, and even though there weren't any elite QB prospects, they didn't care.

    If I had to see Jake in a Redskins uniform I would've killed myself. It also would've ensured. That he would not succeed in the NFL.

    As it sits, he goes to a team with a bona fide star at RB and solid playmaker at WR. Hopefully they have a decent OL because he'll need it for awhile.

    Titans just became my second favorite team.
