ESPN - [Full Article]

One of the things the Titans loved about QB Jake Locker when they brought him in was his resiliency. Former coach Mike Munchak routinely talked of Locker's ability to forget something bad and rebound going forward without letting it affect him.

"It's an opportunity to go back and look at the film and see what you can learn from it and improve," Locker said. "I think you're able to take more away sometimes when you don't execute the play correctly and then you have the opportunity to learn from it. So that's what practice is all about."

Not repeating the same mistakes is certainly a huge goal, and both current HC Ken Whisenhunt and Locker think he's done well avoiding that.

"The goal is to play perfect football; it's really challenging to do," Locker said. "But it's not to repeat the same mistakes that you made before. It means you're learning from them and you're developing as a player."

Fantasy Impact: 

Obviously one bad mistake can turn a game, but Locker seems to have it going for him that he learns and won't make the same mistakes. Locker was playing pretty well last year before getting hurt. He's got some talent around him, but the fantasy-related question surrounding him is whether or not he can be QB2 worthy or at least part of a committee for your team. He currently ranks 24th on our list, which is a low-end QB2 in a 12-team league.
