2011 NFL Draft: Tennessee Titans Select Jake Locker

With the eighth pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Tennessee Titans addressed their quarterback issue by selecting Washington quarterback Jake Locker, passing up on Missouri quarterback Blaine Gabbert.

The Titans, of course, are moving on from the Vince Young and Kerry Collins era – and Jeff Fisher era. It makes sense for them to select a quarterback, but Locker at eight overall seems like a bit of a reach.

The Dallas Cowboys are now on the clock.
