Team Needs: QB-DE-ILB-OC-OG-SS-OLB-DT-WR
Selection: Jake Locker, Quarterback, Washington
The Jets need help at outside linebacker, defensive end, cornerback and wide receiver. But they also need draft picks to do it.
With limited picks in their own pocket, the Jets are hoping to trade back in Round 1.
In exchange for picks No. 39 and 109, the Tennessee Titans move back in to Round 1 to draft their quarterback of the future.
The Titans are expected to release or trade quarterback Vince Young as soon as there is a resolution to the ongoing labor unrest. When they do so, they will be left with Rusty Smith at quarterback. That's it.
It is hard to imagine quarterback not being the Titans' No. 1 priority in the draft. However, don't expect them to spend the eighth pick overall on a quarterback if both Cam Newton and Blaine Gabbert are off the board (they should be).
Instead, expect Tennessee to draft the best available defensive lineman and either trade back in to Round 1 for their quarterback or sit tight with pick No. 39 and hope one of the many second-tier passers fall to them.
Not only is Jake Locker the perfect fit for the Titans, they are a perfect situation for him.
In Tennessee, Locker would be given an All-Pro offensive line, the best running back in the game and a defense that can protect a lead. If wide receiver Kenny Britt can stay out of jail, Locker will have a top-flight wide receiver to throw to.
