The Tennessee Titans made a pretty bold move when they drafted 22-year-old quarterback Jake Locker out of Washington with the eighth pick overall at the recent NFL draft. They may make an even bolder one by starting him on opening day of the 2011 season. Locker’s the Titans’ highest draft choice since quarterback Vince Young was taken third overall back in 2006. Young’s days look to be over in Tennessee though as the club plans on releasing or trading him.

Tennessee Titans Defense: a collection of no name sleepers?

The phrase “no-name ____” gets thrown around a lot in the NFL. And for the Tennessee Titans, that is exactly what they’ll go to war with this fall on one side of the ball; the no name defense.

“It’s funny because I spent some time in California in the off season and if you talk to anybody who’s not from Tennessee, they can’t tell me two names on our defense, we’re virtually the no name defense,” said Titans Defensive Coordinator Chuck Cecil told me during out exclusive chat.

“So they’re unknown commodities at the defensive end position, Jacob Ford, Williams Hayes- unknown guys from unknown places that are second, third year players. You got Sen’Derrick Marks, a second year player from LSU you have no idea who he is, you got Jason Jones, no one knows who he is, and yet they all have the potential to be very dynamic players individually. Not to mention as a group,” said Cecil.
