RTC: Numbers, highlights for Mettenberger

Reading the coverage of the Tennessee Titans…

"The jury is still out on me, and I am going to do everything I can to prove everyone wrong, that I am a great player and I am a great person," said Titans sixth-round pick Zach Mettenberger. Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean looks at the team’s newest quarterback.

Bishop Sankey knows Chris Johnson is a tough act to follow, writes Wyatt.

Both Wyatt and John Glennon of The Tennessean rank the Titans draft a B-minus. Both think the Titans could have done better at quarterback.

Mettenberger’s arrival casts Jake Locker’s long-term future into further doubt, says David Boclair of the Nashville Post.

If you only look at one link in here, this should be it: A very thorough, very encouraging look at Mettenberger from Battle Red Blog from back in late April. I wish the author would put his real name on it. (Hat tip to Music City Miracles.)

To which I say: It’s easy to pick out good clips of any player and make him look good. But this highlights the good of Mettenberger. If coach Ken Whisenhunt is able to build on this stuff, the Titans will have an exciting prospect.

Greg Peshak of Rotoworld charted every snap of the draft’s top quarterbacks and gives us some interesting stuff to consider for Mettenberger. (Another tip to MCM.)
