    I agree, there is something weird about him. He's surely a bizarre looking dude, that's for sure, I know he's athletic but at the same time he looks uncoordinated or something.

    I absolutely hate his throwing motion and he looks like a gawky stick body. With a body like that he's going to get crushed in the NFL scrambling all over the field. He really needs to add about 20-25 pounds and change his throwing motion big time. Again if he's on the board in the 3rd I'd be fine taking him sitting him for a couple years and try to fix his mechanics.

    One way or another, the Titans will draft either Locker or Kaepernick as the QB of the future. Bank!

    They know a bit more at this point than all of us internet warriors.

    As long as they don't waste the 8th overall pick on one of those guys, I think I'll be fine with it. We all have our favorite QB prospects and those that we hate. But like you said, I'm trusting the Titans FO is better at evaluating the talent than us goTitans members. If they like Locker and/or Kaepernick that much then so be it. There really isn't such thing as a "can't miss" QB prospect anyway. Especially with this particular class it seems. You do have to have a little bit of luck on your side. So if there isn't one prospect who is clearly head and shoulders above the rest, I'd much rather take that gamble in the 2nd round or at least the late 1st than with the 8th overall pick.

    Kaepernick definitely needs to hit the weights if he plans on being a franchise QB though.

    Why? Why change his throwing motion or his mechanics? Theres nothing wrong with him. He's very accurate, has a crazy strong arm, and his release is quick. Just let him play natural just bc its not normal like every other qb doesnt mean its bad.

    Why would we just assume we're definitely taking Locker or Kaepernick? There are too many better options available at the same position to say that.


    Sorry, but I don't see Kaepernick going before the 4th round. He should sink like a rock.

    I can't make myself believe a team really thinks he can start in the NFL.

    Sure. I have enough faith in humanity to be confident about this one.

    If GMs are this stupid, there's no reason I shouldn't have their jobs.

    Because all the evidence that we have suggests that the Titans are extremely interested in both players. Multiple private visits, etc. That's the stuff that really matters. Not what a bunch of us on a message board thing.
