Titans selected LSU QB Zach Mettenberger with the No. 178 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
Mettenberger (6-foot-5, 224) was a four-star recruit to Georgia, but got kicked off the team following a misdemeanor, and spent one year at JUCO before landing at LSU. He made 25 starts, compiling a 19-6 record, 35:15 TD-to-INT ratio, and 61.8 completion rate. Mettenberger is built like Joe Flacco with plus hand size (9 3/4") and a big vertical arm, but he's a literal statue in the pocket with slow feet and a long delivery. He also tore his left ACL late last November, although Mettenberger is expected to be ready for camp. Due to his lack of pocket mobility, Mettenberger will likely have to be well protected to become a successful NFL starter. With Jake Locker in the final year of his deal and no successor on the roster, Mettenberger could be coach Ken Whisenhunt's quarterback in 2015 if everything breaks Mettenberger's way. He could even make starts this year. Sat, May 10, 2014 03:59:00 PM
