Whisenhunt and offensive coordinator Jason Michael will install a new system and Locker will need a lot of snaps to learn it. (Even if he was in an old, more familiar system, he'll need the bulk of the snaps.)
"I think in training camp ... Jake's your starter, he's going to get the majority of snaps, and Charlie after that," Webster said on a Nashville radio station Tuesday. "I think you can see enough in practice, in preseason games to get a little bit of a feel.
"Obviously if he moved up the depth chart then the more snaps he'd get. But initially, you're right, your snaps are going to go to your starter."
An injured guy like Georgia's Aaron Murray or LSU's Zach Mettenberger will likely need time to work their way back from their respective knee injuries. If the Titans like one of them, he could be a draft value, available later than he'd be if healthy.
Having few snaps for Murray or Mettenberger would be less of an issue early on in what could amount to a redshirt year. Then he could be an option for 2015 if the Titans decide Locker is not the guy.
