Titans' Zach Mettenberger: I can hold off Marcus Mariota, Jameis Winston
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(2/21/15) Titans quarterback Zach Mettenberger remains hopeful he's the quarterback of the future, even with Tennessee holding the No. 2 pick in this year's draft.
The 2014 sixth-round pick showed some confidence in his role with the team while speaking to reporters at an event in Nashville, noting that he could hold off the top two quarterback prospects, Florida State's Jameis Winston or Oregon's Marcus Mariota, if the Titans used their No. 2 pick on a quarterback, per ESPN.
"They are obviously very talented guys," Mettenberger said. " … If they were here I think they would say the same thing: If we had to compete out there, I think I'd beat them out."
General manager Ruston Webster said Wednesday at the combine that the Titans haven't given up on Mettenberger at quarterback, despite their low draft pick. Mettenberger admitted that the GM has been completely straight with him, with "no smoke and mirrors."
Tennessee installed Mettenberger under center as the starter in late October. He went without a win in six starts before missing the final three games of his rookie campaign with a shoulder injury. He threw for 1,412 yards with eight touchdowns and seven interceptions in 2014.
Mettenberger's status as Titans' starting QB could be in jeopardy

|(2/18/15) Titans general manager Ruston Webster said Wednesday at the combine in Indianapolis that the team has not yet given up on Zach Mettenberger at quarterback. However, he also didn't rule out potentially taking a quarterback with the second pick in the NFL Draft.
Webster said he will spend plenty of time leading up to the draft with quarterback prospects Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota.
"We're in a good position, be it quarterback or any other position," Webster said of having the No. 2 pick.
Report: Titans likely to stick with Zach Mettenberger at QB
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(2/15/15) The Titans have the second overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, but they're unlikely to pick one of the last two Heisman winners.
According to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean, the Titans are likely to keep Zach Mettenberger at starting quarterback, instead of drafting a high-profile college quarterback early in the first round.
Wyatt said that "early indications" are that the team is "leaning toward" giving Mettenberger a chance to prove himself, and passing on Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota and Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston.
Winston won the 2013 Heisman Trophy, while leading Florida State to the national title. Mariota won it in 2014, leading Oregon to the national championship game.
"We like Zach, and I think Zach has the tools to play and start in the league," said Titans general manager Ruston Webster.
Webster added that the team would do its "due diligence" and evaluate both Winston and Mariota at the NFL Combine.
Mettenberger, a rookie last season, was installed as starting quarterback in late October. He was winless in six starts before missing the final three games of the season with a shoulder injury. He passed for 1,412 yards with eight touchdowns and seven interceptions.
Zaviar Gooden only probable on Titans' Week 17 injury report
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12/26/14) Titans linebacker Zaviar Gooden (hamstring) was the only player on Tennessee's final injury report listed as probable for Sunday's season finale against the Colts.
Defensive tackle Sammie Lee Hill (foot), tackle Terren Jones (concussion) tackle Byron Stingily (ankle), linebacker Kamerion Wimbley (hamstring), tackle Taylor Lewan (ankle) and quarterback Zach Mettenberger (shoulder) were labeled as questionable.
According to the Tennessean, Lewan and Mettenberger aren't expected to play. Coach Ken Whisenhunt did not rule out the possibility of dressing Mettenberger as an emergency option.

Sorting the Sunday Pile: Jaguars have plethora of options in 2015 NFL Draft
The Jaguars can move up, down and all around in the 2015 NFL Draft. OK, not up. But given their needs and the talent available they're in a very good spot to capitalize on this draft class.
Phil Simms: 2015 QB class is 'a bad group,' Jameis is 'best thrower'
Phil Simms appeared on Sirius XM radio and said the 2015 quarterback class is "a bad group" but that Jameis Winston is the "best thrower" among the quarterbacks available.
|Normally when a team drafts a quarterback in the sixth round it goes largely ignored, at least until the quarterback proves himself (Tom Brady is an example). The Titans would love it if their Round 6 pick, Zach Mettenberger, proved himself, but it might take Titans starter Jake Locker stumbling or getting hurt for that to happen. The good news is that Locker has a track record of bad play and injuries, so it might actually just be a matter of time for Mettenberger. The former LSU quarterback has a big arm but slow feet. A torn ACL and a diluted sample resulting in a failed drug test this spring sent his draft stock spiraling. But his stats are something to behold as he threw for 5,691 yards and 35 touchdowns in 25 games with the Tigers. We wouldn't be shocked if Mettenberger pushed for playing time right away but until he's actually the starter count on him being on the waiver wire in your standard seasonal league. In long-term formats we love Mettenberger with a mid- to late-round pick as well as a second- to third-round pick in rookie-only drafts.
