    I think this pick almost needs to be a QB after what has happened so far this year. We were 3-1 with Locker until he got hurt for his 3rd season in a row and it has possibly derailed our season. Locker might be the answer but what happens if we make the playoffs this season and Locker gets hurt in 2014?

    We need to grab whatever guy happens to fall in this talented QB class.

    My choice at the moment is Zach Mettenberger.

    It wouldn't surprise me if this happened, but I seriously doubt it. Yes, Locker is always hurt... but our coaching staff is all in on him. Fitzpatrick has been awful, but he's played some great defenses and is in a new system. He's good enough to be a backup. We're all in on Locker, he has one more year (after this year); if he can't stay healthy -- then we'll likely move on and go QB round 1 (with a new head coach, likely) in 2015.

    haha, thanks man.. I get bored at work alot. So I play make believe in my head with the Titans.

    Drafting Mettenberger isn't buying a new house it's buying homeowners insurance in cases your house has an electrical fire. Also just because Fitzpatrick is "good enough" (and IMO he isn't) doesn't mean that we have to settle. If Locker goes down next season and is out for the year how many wins will Fizpatrick guide us too? My guess is not many.

    If Erving was smart he'd go back to school. He hasn't been as good as last year.

    I'll give you that. I just don't see it. 1st and 2nds are just too valuable to draft a backup QB. I'd prefer to use it on an OT, DE, or MLB... that's just me. Hoping Locker can stay healthy.

    Nothing is set, but all three are very talented prospects that could go in the rounds I listed them that fit a need for our team.

    Honestly there arn't any DE that I think would make an impact from day one in this draft aside from Clowney who we have no shot of getting. So I think we should grab one in the free agency.

    I'd be okay with going OT/LB in rounds 1/2 but I think Fokou is good enough on run downs that we can platoon him (to borrow a baseball term) with Zaviar Gooden in nickle situations. I also wouldn't mind bouncing Brown into the Mike role and letting Gooden try to be the full time Will guy.
