Jake Locker suffered through an injury filled 2012, being shelved for a 5-game span mid-season and really never got a groove going. To make matters a little more interesting, Locker is also recovering from offseason shoulder surgery.

The good news though, if you want to call it that, is that Tennessee Titans general manager Ruston Webster has said that he believes Locker will be ready for the minicamps which are in June.

Locker is decked out with some really solid wide receiver targets in Kenny Britt, Kendall Wright and Nate Washington as well as tight end Jared Cook. But can he stay healthy enough to utilize the weaponry that he has at his disposal? That question really can’t be answered yet as seeing will be believing.

Look for Locker, if healthy, to win the Titans starting quarterback gig while performing as a low-end QB2  as a best case scenario. More than likely though he should go undrafted in almost all fantasy leagues while riding the waiver wire pine unless a team is really in a pickle for a quarterback due to injuries coupled with bye-week’s. His portfolio of stats is simply just way too incomplete to give a great read on this young, third-year gunslinger.
