As deep as the quarterback class is this year, it's also full of risks with every unique prospect. For that reason, it will be tough for the Titans to take a quarterback early on. There are so many teams that are more desperate for a quarterback than the Titans are right now.
There is no way the Titans can afford to reach for a quarterback, and the ones that may not be considered reaches will be gone before the Titans' 11th overall pick. Hyped quarterbacks like Johnny Manziel, Teddy Bridgewater and Blake Bortles will probably be off the board.
Furthermore, Derek Carr would be a major risk at 11th overall.
With that said, the Titans could still seemingly wait until the later rounds of the draft to take on a project at quarterback. Maybe take a chance on an Aaron Murray, David Fales or Tajh Boyd. All are projected to go in the fourth round or later according to NFLDraftScout.com.
Murray is still recovering from knee surgery and obviously couldn't participate, but we did get some information on Boyd and Fales.
To start with Boyd, his combine results hurt his draft stock even more than it already has been. His sluggish 40-yard dash time of 4.84 doesn't lend itself well to a guy that relies on his feet. More importantly was his mediocre performance in the throwing drills.
As for Fales, he's a relatively unknown product out of San Jose State. His results also didn't really dazzle anybody. He further solidified that he's a late-round prospect despite the gaudy numbers he put up in college.
Both of these guys will be projects in the NFL. The Titans still have Jake Locker for another year, so taking on a project at quarterback like one of these two guys isn't a major risk.
