QB | Adam Weber | NFL Draft Prospect | Draft
The Jacksonville Jaguars will meet with University of Minnesota QB Adam Weber this weekend, a source told Judd Zulgad, of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

QB | Matthew Stafford | Detroit Lions | Injury, Fantasy
Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford's (shoulder) throwing appearance at the University of Georgia's spring game will be more laid back instead of throwing the ball deep, reports Dave Birkett, of the Detroit Free Press. The university said they know Stafford if rehabbing from a shoulder injury and will keep things laid back.

QB | Jake Locker | NFL Draft Prospect | Draft
Washington QB Jake Locker has recently worked out for the Philadelphia Eagles, New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks, Minnesota Vikings, Tennessee Titans and Denver Broncos, according to the Seattle Post Intelligencer. It is looking less and less likely that he will still be available during the later portion of the first round of the NFL Draft.

QB | Cam Newton | NFL Draft Prospect | Draft
While Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson admitted he is a big fan of Auburn QB Cam Newton and believes Newton would be a great pick for the Titans in this year's NFL Draft, Johnson still hopes the Titans decide to hang onto QB Vince Young, reports Jim Wyatt, of The Tennessean. According to Johnson, it is not guaranteed the Titans part ways with Young. "It is not etched in stone that Vince is going to be gone, so I am not sure what they are going to do at quarterback. A lot of things have changed in the last few months, so maybe Vince will be back?" Johnson said Thursday, April 14. With former head coach Jeff Fisher out of the picture, Johnson feels everything is up in the air. "We'll just see what happens," Johnson noted. Johnson did note that nobody with the Titans has said there is a chance Young will return to the team in 2011, and Tennessee officials declined to comment on the situation. Thus far, the Titans have said the plan is to move on without Young as a member of the franchise. If Young is out of the picture, Johnson said he would like to see the Titans select Newton in the NFL Draft if he is available.
