Although they selected Jake Locker with the eighth overall pick in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft, the Tennessee Titans appear to be in the market for a quarterback.
According to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean, the Titans “seem especially curious” about former Fresno State Bulldogs’ quarterback Derek Carr.
Carr visited Saint Thomas Sports Park earlier this month, and the Titans recently sent two coaches — offensive coordinator Jason Michael and quarterbacks coach John McNulty, I’m told — to work out Carr in Fresno, Calif.
The Titans also spent time with Carr at the Senior Bowl and the NFL combine.
So would the Titans consider drafting Carr with the 11th overall pick? Or might they trade down to draft him later in the first round?
Based on their public comments about Jake Locker this offseason, the Titans have given no indication they’re looking for a quarterback early in the draft. This much is relatively certain, however: Carr won’t be around when the Titans pick in the second round (42nd overall).
Carr could be a target of the Titans in the second round with the 42nd overall pick.
Carr completed 453 of 659 passes for 5,082 yards with 50 touchdowns and eight interceptions last season.
