A year ago, the Titans drafted guard Chance Warmack with the idea that he’d help protect quarterback Jake Locker. Now Warmack is hoping the Titans draft a player who could become Locker’s replacement.
Warmack said on NFL Network that he’d love to see Tennessee draft his old Alabama teammate AJ McCarron.
“I hope we get him. I don’t know what round we can get him in, but I definitely want him in Tennessee,” Warmack said. “He’s a winner. He’s a great guy to be around and he’ll help the locker room. He’s not selfish as a quarterback and he’s going to make the right plays on the field. If he doesn’t start, when he gets drafted by the Tennessee Titans he’ll definitely help.”
The Titans wouldn’t draft McCarron with the 11th overall pick in the draft, but they might consider him in the second or third round. If so, they’d be drafting him with the idea that he’d eventually push Locker out of the starting spot.
Locker can’t be thrilled to know one of his linemen is rooting for that.
