With training camp fast approaching, four of the NFL's 256 draft picks remain unsigned. They are Browns corner Justin Gilbert (first round, eighth overall), Titans offensive tackle Taylor Lewan (first round, 11th overall), Jaguars receiver Marqise Lee (second round, 39th overall) and Dolphins offensive tackle Billy Turner (third round, 67th overall).
Jaguars second-round pick Allen Robinson, a 6-3, 220-pound receiver out of Penn State, signed a four-year deal. Robinson was selected 61st overall, 22 spots after Jacksonville drafted wideout Marqise Lee.
Jaguars coach Gus Bradley doesn't sound optimistic about receiver Justin Blackmon returning to the NFL any time soon, reports the Florida Times-Union. Blackmon, suspended indefinitely last November under the league's substance abuse policy, hasn't responded to some messages left by teammates.
This spring Titans quarterback Jake Locker didn't use his legs nearly as much in practice as he has in the past, The Tennessean noted. Locker, known for his mobility, seemed to stay in the pocket and could be groomed to do more conventional pocket passing rather than running bootlegs or taking off for an easy gain with his feet. That pocket passer-type is the kind of quarterback new coach Ken Whisenhunt is used to working with.
Titans rookie Zach Mettenberger said recently that he's preparing to start and will try to contend for the starting job in training camp. But The Tennessean believes that he is "no threat" to Jake Locker's gig.
