The Titans took Locker 8th overall in the 2011 NFL Draft. Locker has been compared to everyone from Brett Favre to Vince Young. The Young comparison originated from a lack of accuracy and the ability to run, while the Favre comparison came from nearly identical college numbers. Nothing against Vince Young, but if the Favre comparisons hold true, there is really something special about to begin in Nashville.
