The Tennessee Titans hope QB Zach Mettenberger can develop this upcoming season and then compete for the starting or backup quarterback job in 2015. QB Jake Locker will be the starting quarterback, and QB Charlie Whitehurst is the clear favorite for the No. 2 quarterback.

Tennessee Titans quarterbacks coach John McNulty said QB Jake Locker uses good posture in the pocket and plays on his toes, which helps him move from one target to another. "Once you step to one guy, you can't just step over. You've got to be in that football position and move your whole operation. I think that helps him, he plays kind of up on his toes, he's always in a football position. Some of these big guys are straight up and down and when their first guy is not there, their foot is planted and they just step to the next guy. It's really as much getting your shoulders and hips in line as it is your feet. The way he plays, he's able to do that," McNulty said.
Fantasy Tip: Locker likely will be the team's starting quarterback this upcoming season but probably should not be seen as more than a low-end No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

Tennessee Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt is looking to make QB Jake Locker a pocket passer in his offense even though mobility is one of Locker's strengths. The team will still use rollouts and bootlegs at times but most of Locker's passes will come out of the pocket. Whisenhunt has been happy with how well Locker has picked up the offense this offseason. "Jake works hard," Whisenhunt said. "He's done a great job as far as studying the offense and understanding his reads. He's really done a good job with a lot of little things - his footwork, his techniques."

Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Jason Michael said he has been happy with how QB Jake Locker (foot) performed this offseason. "From day one, he's worked his butt off from rehabilitation of his foot to jumping in the playbook, to how he's gone about his preparation on the field. It's been a frustrating go at times with his foot, but he's never shown it. He's a poised man. I'm excited about working with him. He does some good things that we've already seen," Michael said.

Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (foot) said an indicator of his progress this offseason has been connecting visualizations with verbiage. Locker said he'll be really comfortable with the new offense once he's able to "paint a picture" of a play. Head coach Ken Whisenhunt said it's good Locker is feeling more comfortable, but he's not there yet.
Fantasy Tip: The main question surrounding Locker hasn't been comfort in the offense, it's been health. Whether he feels more comfortable or not, we're still not comfortable drafting him as more than a low-end QB2.

Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (foot) is proving he's the leader of the Titans, according to quarterbacks coach John McNulty. McNulty added that Locker's work ethic and intangibles are unquestioned. The fourth-year quarterback is comfortable with his reads and has shown good footwork and decision-making. He is ahead of schedule in recovering from a Lisfranc injury and surgery last year.
Fantasy Tip: This is encouraging news from McNulty, but Locker is too big of a risk to even be drafted. He’s missed 15 games the past two seasons due to injuries and is a bye-week replacement or streaming option at best in 2014.

Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (foot) said he felt good moving around in practice Tuesday, May 27.
Fantasy Tip: Locker still has some work to do to prove he can stay healthy, but this is a good first step for him. Locker is a QB3 with upside.

Fantasy Tip: He was in the top tier of tackles throughout the draft preview season and should protect Jake Locker (maybe?) adeptly.
