Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean writes that the Jake Locker can expect to have some competition during training camp.
Titans new HC Ken Whisenhunt tells Wyatt that they will consider quarterbacks in this year’s NFL draft.
“It looks like it is a good draft for quarterbacks,” Whisenhunt said. “I’d like to have five or six of them. … That’s the nature of this league; you want to have a good one, so you try and get as many as you can.”
Titans GM Ruston Webster added that he expects to “look at the quarterback position every year” moving forward.
Tennessee is without a third-round pick after trading for WR Justin Hunter last year, which means they would likely consider someone in either the second or fourth round.
As for potential mid-round draft targets, Wyatt mentions that Tennessee could consider: Derek Carr (Fresno State), A.J. McCarron (Alabama), Jimmy Garoppolo (Eastern Illinois), Aaron Murray (Georgia) and Zach Mettenberger (LSU) and Connor Shaw (South Carolina).
