Would the Titans draft one of the top 3 QBs if they fell to #11?

    I've also wondered if Bradford could just benefit from a change of scenery. I wonder if they'd trade Bradford for Locker straight up? Maybe both would benefit by being in a new situation. Would you guys take that trade?

    If we land a 1st round QB, do we try to trade Locker?

    If we go QB in the first were expecting him to be a franchise QB. Why not try to get something for Locker instead of letting him walk after next year. He's shown promise other than injuries could at least get a late round pick.

    Locker looked pretty good last year when healthy but "flashes" shouldn't stop us from taking a QB who could take this team to the next level. If Bridgewater or whomever the Titans really like is sitting there at 11 then you almost have to pull the trigger. If there is a run on QBs then no worry, we still have Locker under contract for one more year and we can address another need.

    I would be okay with this scenario because this means Locker actually plays well and we would probably make the playoffs considering how bad the rest of the AFC South is. Then, either we bring back Locker under a new deal or we give the keys to the new guy. If Locker does come back and we feel good about his future then we can just ship the other guy for another 1st and maybe another late pick.

    No. Bradford is due to make 16 and 17 mil the next two seasons, we have Locker under contract this year for like 3-4 mil. Scenery is going to help QBs much who can't stay on the field, maybe checking out the new sights and bars would be a plus.

    I doubt they would trade Bradford, and if they did probably not for Locker. Like Playmaker mentioned Bradford is to make a ton more than Locker this year, the Titans wouldn't do that deal.

    i think Bridgewater"s the real deal, can't picture him busting. I love Jake but if Teddy's there, I'm taking him. I think the negative talk about him is a conspiracy which I hope is effective so much that he drops to 11. I truly doubt it.

    Be just as well off with Murray, Jimmy G, or McCarron as we would with Bridgewater IMO. Not a fan of the "top 3".

    How exactly is Bortles inaccurate when he has a 67.8 completion %? He also has a very respectable YPC at 13.83. So he isn't check down Charlie or bubble screen Bob.

    I think he has pretty solid pocket presence. Slides up in the pocket nicely at times. Also has a good touch on his screen passes and appears to have an actual feel for that part of the passing game.

    I didn't look at his numbers. Just from what I saw during games. I saw a lot of inaccurate throws. He was the least impressive IMO
