I haven't posted in a while since I hadn't really made up my mind on who I wanted or what I wanted but this has to be the biggest pile of crap I've read. Locker has a lot going for him. If you can't see that you're pretty blind. I'm not saying he's not going to be a bust. But can you say that about any of the QBs this year? Newton has a lot going for him too but the big difference is the Titans got burned really bad by a guy with all the talent in the world, a bad work ethic and below average intelligence. I really doubt they'd be interested in testing those waters again. That said, Newton could easily be the best QB of the draft if he works hard at it and improves his game. Locker is a leader. To me, that is the team's biggest need. Someone who can put together two sentences without sounding like he never attended high school. Someone who's gonna be the first in and the last out. Someone who's gonna put his team above himself. Someone who's gonna play his butt off even if he's hurt. That's Jake Locker. On the talent side, yeah there's definitely a ton of room for improvement. They say Palmer is good with QBs, I hope thats true. Jake needs a lot of work on his game. The fact that he throws more accurately on the run than he does from the pocket is a good sign if you ask me. There's 2 likely causes for that. 1) He's over-thinking it and trying to do too much or 2) his mechanics from throwing in the pocket need work. Both of these are correctable. Wonderlic score wasn't the highest but from the interviews I've seen with him, he doesn't look like he's nearly as dumb as VY (coming from a VY fan) and VY can and will be a successful NFL QB (lack of work and support is what killed his career in TN). Overall, yeah, its a gamble to draft a QB from this draft at #8 so I'll agree with you there. We're in a situation where QB is by far our biggest need and it just so happens to be the most important position in football. Nobody is gonna trade us a franchise QB in free agency and we're not gonna finish dead last and draft Luck next year. So it'll be a gamble either way.
