Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker Will Establish Himself As Long-Term Starter In 2014
Drafted eighth overall back in 2011, Jake Locker has been a big disappointment up to this point in his career. The young Tennessee Titans signal caller has struggled with injuries and ineffectiveness since he became the starter, and there have been many questions about Locker’s ability to hold down a starting job. That said, I still think Locker has the talent to be an effective starter, and he will prove himself as the long-term answer for the Titans this season.
Locker has always had a tremendous amount of natural talent; it’s just been a matter of getting that talent to become production that has been the problem. With a cannon for an arm and tremendous athletic ability for his position, Locker has shown flashes of absolute stardom in his NFL career, but in 2014, those flashes will be replaced by consistent, excellent production.
The Titans have done a great job of surrounding Locker with talent, and he will take advantage. Between Kendall Wright, Justin Hunter, Delanie Walker and Bishop Sankey, Locker has no shortage of weapons at his disposal. Throw in a solid offensive line and a head coach in Ken Whisenhunt who is widely respected among quarterbacks, and it’s easy to see why Locker is in for a breakout year in Tennessee.
Overall, Locker is ready to take his game to the next level and become the long-term answer for the Titans at the quarterback position. Provided he can avoid the injuries that have delayed his development so far, Locker will become the franchise QB the Titans have lacked for years.
