The reports were that they literally wanted Carr so that he could compete with Jake for the starting spot. This isn't conjecture, this was explicitly said. No they didn't trade up for Carr but that's because they understood how much it would cost and were strapped for picks. When your QB is the guy you don't spend a high draft pick on another QB to come compete with him, it's that simple. The want does mean something because it gives you an idea of how the staff feels about Jake. The fact that the staff was willing to use a 2nd round pick on Carr in a year where they have no 3rd rounder at the very least strongly indicates that they're not 100% sold on Jake and are prepairing to replace him if he should suck or get hurt. This isn't like the Pats drafting Jimmy G as an eventual replacement to Brady, the Titans wanted Carr to come in and compete with Jake immediately. I don't think the fact that they weren't willing to sell off their entire draft to get him is relevant to whether or not they saw Carr as a guy who could compete with and maybe unseat Locker. The fact that we didn't take him at 11 is also pretty irrelevant because they had a good idea he'd be available in the second and taking him at 11 would've been a huge reach. We think Sankey is a 1st round talent but we took him in the second because we had a good idea that he'd be available. The fact is Jake is on his last legs in Tennessee and he'll be fighting for his job. It's sink or swim time and the staff is in the market for Locker insurance.
