Tennessee Titans Select Jake Locker With Eighth Overall Pick

With the eight pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Tennessee Titans selected Washington quarterback Jake Locker.

The Vince Young era is long and dead as the Titans stun the world. With rumors that they were smitten with TCU quarterback Andy Dalton, the Titans take Locker and Houston fans should be happy.

While Locker has upside with his mobility and arm, the knock on Locker is his inaccuracy. In fact, his inaccurate arm knocked him down a lot of draft boards. Can new Titans offensive coordinator Chris Palmer develop Locker or will Locker be like former Palmer students Tim Couch and David Carr? It's a risky pick for Tennessee, but you often have to take risks to reap rewards. All we know now is that Vince Young will be released, likely tomorrow.
