La Confora zeroes in on the Titans' need for a quarterback and suggests that they would be willing to take him with the eighth pick.â†µ
Several league sources said the Titans are high on Dalton and consider him to be an elite prospect who carries less of the varied risk of other quarterbacks in this draft. One source indicated the offensive coaches in Tennessee are pushing for Dalton, while the defensive staff is high on Auburn defensive lineman Nick Fairley.â†µ
Dalton has been receiving lots of late interest, with teams such as the Cincinnati Bengals and Miami Dolphins scheduling private workouts, and I would not be surprised if the Titans took him eighth overall; nor would I be shocked if he was the second quarterback selected.â†µ
Even with several teams needing a quarterback and the lack of consensus on the top quarterbacks in this draft, it would still be a shock to see Dalton go that high.â†µ
But the draft is always full of shocks.
