There's little doubt the Titans will take a quarterback at some point in the NFL Draft this weekend.

The question is when.

One could make a convincing case that quarterback is their position of greatest need, considering the current crop includes oft-injured Jake Locker, career backup Charlie Whitehurst and unproven Tyler Wilson.

But does that mean there's a chance the Titans might surprise the NFL by picking a quarterback with the 11th overall pick? Might they trade down and take one later in the first round? Or will they simply wait for a later round?

The decision the Titans and other teams face is balancing the desire to address the most important position on the field with the understanding that such need sometimes leads to quarterbacks being drafted too high.
