2011 NFL Draft Selections (Before Draft Begins)
Titans Draft Needs
QB, OG, ILB, CB
8. Tennessee Titans Select: QB Jake Locker
And the Titans go with Jake Locker over Gabbert, wow. I’m not a fan of Locker but at least his head coach was a quarterback coach. The Titans will need to lean on the running game to finish around .500 this season.This team needed a quarterback to start over so hopefully Locker is ready to go this season.
Overall Draft Grade: B
39. Linebacker Akeem Ayers
Decent pick for the Tennessee Titans as safety Akeem Ayers was at the top of his position coming into this years draft. Ayers may not be a great physical player coming into the NFL, but hopefully they can coach him up and make him a solid every down player. Lots of upside with this pick for a team that needs more help on defense.
77. Defensive Lineman Jurrell Casey
109. Linebacker Colin McCarthy
130. Running Back Jamie Harper
142. Defensive Lineman Karl Klug
175. Offensive Tackle Byron Stingily
212. Defensive Tackle Zach Clayton
