2011 NFL Draft: Titans Taking Aim to Replace Vince Young at Quarterback
2011 NFL Draft the Titans try to find a new quarterback to bring about a revival for new coach Mike Munchak in Nashville.
Undeniably, the Titans biggest issue that cannot be ignored going into the Munchak era will be to find the quarterback that they can rely on for years to come.
Gary Horton of Scouts Inc summed up the current quarterback situation.
"Vince Young likely will be gone, Kerry Collins is an aging free agent at the end of his career and Rusty Smith has limited experience and even less production. Right now it's hard to imagine how this offense can line up and be productive with what it has under center."
Young has burned too many bridges to return and Collins is simply not going to be around long enough to ignore getting a new passer before this season.
They have the opportunity to get someone like Cam Newton.
Wes Bunting of the National Football Post thinks Gabbert will be the pick.
The Titans have a massive void at the quarterback position and Gabbert seems like the kind of no nonsense type kid Tennessee now wants to put behind the wheels of their offense".
It is important too note that this as Titans fans do not want the drama that Young brought throughout his days as a Titan, and Gabbert seems to be in direct contrast to Newton/Young in personality.
Though he reminds some of Young from his college days at Texas, he might be just what the Titans need.
The Titans don't seem like they are interested in getting into the Donovan McNabb or Kevin Kolb trading market; so look for Gabbert or Newton to be the choice at No. 8.
Others such as Mel Kiper and Todd McShay have changed their stances on that pick. They believe that Tennessee will either go Nick Fairley or Da'Quan Bowers on the defensive side of the ball.
Though the pass rush would be something to think about, the Titans could use a linebacker more if they did in fact go defense early.
