So I'm hearing buzz that Jake Locker could be one of the late round QB sleepers with upside.
Yesterday on Sirius he was in a list of top 5 upside QB's.
This morning -
NFL Network's Mike Lombardi stated on Inside Training Camp Live Tuesday that he's "learned" Jake Locker is the favorite to open the season as the Titans' starting quarterback.
The Titans intend to run a vertical, pass-first offense, and Locker gives them their best chance to execute with a power arm, strong pocket composure, and difference-making athleticism when receivers fail to defeat coverage downfield. If Locker performs as Titans coaches seemingly hope -- holding off Matt Hasselbeck -- he should not struggle to post top-15 quarterback stats. Locker is dangerous on the run, and Tennessee's passing attack offers explosive elements even if anything they get from Kenny Britt is a "bonus." Already a high-upside value-pick QB2, Locker will be a fantasy backup to target in late rounds. Jul 31 - 2:36 PM
As I know little to nothing about Locker why is everyone so infatuated? I know he is in a good system but seems what I saw in game performance last year doesn't warrant the attention.
