The Tennessee Titans selected quarterback Jake Locker with the eighth pick in the 2011 NFL Draft on Thursday night.

Locker flirted with declaring for the draft last year but decided to return for his senior year at the University of Washington. The 6-foot-3, 234-pounder threw for 2,265 yards, 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions with a 55.4 completion percentage in 2010.

Locker is the first quarterback the Titans have drafted since the franchise picked Vince Young third in the 2006 draft.

Can't blame this bone-headed pick on Fisher... Looks like sabotage from within!

TITAN1, if this is such a great pick, will you change your regular season prediction to 11-5 or 12-4?
