Next up for QB prospects: Pro days

With the NFL Combine winding down, the Tennessee Titans now move on to the next step in the process of evaluating who will be their future quarterback.

Auburn's Cam Newton has plenty of questions still to answer after the Combine.

That means attending the various pro days around the country for an up close look at the quarterback prospects in this year's draft.

Of particular interest will be Missouri's Blaine Gabbert, who elected not to throw at the Combine this past week.

Gabbert, projected by some to be the first quarterback off the board in this year's draft, will throw for scouts and team officials on March 17 in Columbia, Mo.

Check in TitanInsider's premium content to find out a number of the quarterbacks the Titans had scheduled interviews with at the Combine.
Jake Locker, who reportedly helped himself with his workout at the Combine, is scheduled to have his pro day on March 30 at the University of Washington.

Two quarterbacks with questions to answer โ€“ Auburn's Cam Newton and Arkansas' Ryan Mallett โ€“ are both scheduled to have their pro days soon, on March 8.

ESPN reported that the one team's assistant coach asked Newton why he ran a quarterback sneak at the end of the BCS Championship Game against Oregon, rather than take a knee as coach Gene Chizek ordered.
The team that asked that question is believed to have been the Titans.
With new defensive line coach Tracy Rocker now in Tennessee, he would have had direct knowledge of Newton's defiance of the play call.

As for Mallett, he threw well at the Combine, but still has to answer questions about attitude and rumors of drug use have plagued him as well. It was a subject he apparently bristled about when asked by reporters in Indianapolis.

As for the second-tier quarterbacks in the draft, Iowa's Ricky Stanzi has his pro day set for March 21, while Nevada's Colin Kaepernick goes the following day.

Florida State's Christian Ponder is scheduled for March 16.
