2011 NFL Draft Grades: How Does Jake Locker Landing in Tennessee Grade Out?
2011 NFL Draft Grades Gives Tennessee a B+ For Picking Jake Locker
One of the bigger surprises in the first round of this draft was the Tennessee Titans picking former University of Washington star Jake Locker with the No. 8 overall pick. The Titans picked Locker even though Blaine Gabbert was still on the board.
While there are certainly some people who think the Titans made the wrong pick between the two, I think the Titans made a solid choice.
I will say that it will be interesting to see just how the careers of Locker and Gabbert compare because they will be playing in the same division.
While I think the pick was a good one I am giving it a B+ because of the fact that Locker is going to be a franchise quarterback and he will be the face of the Titans for years to come.
Sure Locker has a lot to work on before becoming a star in the AFC South, but I think he has the athleticism and skills to get there. He is also a solid locker room personality and will be a leader for the team going forward.
