Could the Tennessee Titans draft Blake Bortles?

A lot of the pre-draft hype this year has centered around the top quarterbacks and where it is that they will land. 

The thinking had been that teams at the top of the draft would pass on QBs in the first round as they seek elite talent at other positions. However that may not be the case with the Tennessee Titans.

The Titans have the 11th pick in the draft  and whilst they do have a starting quarterback in Jake Locker, concerns have been raised about his long term future with the team.

According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, who spoke on the matter today the Titans have a "pretty good grade" on Blake Bortles and could well select him if he fell out of the top 10.

There appears to be a lot of smoke and mirrors regarding teams who could draft a quarterback and the top three passers of Blake Bortles, Teddy Bridgewater and Johnny Manziel have been mock drafted anywhere between first overall and middle of the second round.

Really it's anyone's guess if Bortles would be around for the Titans to pick at 11, but if he is and they pull the trigger they will be getting a quarterback with prototypical size and a good arm. Bortles also has experience in a pro-style offense and could be ready to go from week one.

Do you think Bortles would be a good fit for the Titans? Let us know in the comments.
