Titans are expected to pass on Winston and Mariota; Will stick with Mettenberger

mettAccording to the Tennessean, the Tennessee Titans are not expected to necessarily pick Marcus Mariota or Jameis Winston with the second pick in the draft. Ultimately, the Titans must decide whether they’re better off sticking with Mettenberger or rolling the dice with someone else. The Titans GM Ruston Webster sounds like he is on the Mettenberger ship.

“We like Zach, and I think Zach has the tools to play and start in the league,” Titans general manager Ruston Webster said. “We’ve said all along that this is a part of this process, and we have to do our due diligence all the way through. Zach knows we are going to do that, and this is just kind of part of it.

“These guys are part of the evaluation process along with other positions. And we’ll take a good look at them.”

Early indications are the Titans are leaning toward giving Mettenberger a chance to prove himself as the full-time starter rather than drafting Winston or Mariota with the second pick. Mettenberger, a sixth-round pick last year, started six games as a rookie while Jake Locker and Charlie Whitehurst started the other games.
