Smart move by him. Another year under Shark and he will be the #1 pick.

That's actually pretty smart. With guys like Bradford, Tebow, and McCoy gone, Locker can focus on being one of the premiere guys to watch in 2010...

That is OK. McDaniels already told me he is trading most of the draft picks to get Suh. Suh would win us a few SBs so I told him that is a great idea.

Dumb move from a $ standpoint...

He would have been a top 10 pick this year.

2011 draft will absolutely have a rookie cap in place. This decision will cost him a **** load of money.

If the NFL and the Players institute a rookie cap this isn't so smart.

He beats all those guys now. The reason he able not to come out because he has MLB deal already from the Angles.

exactly! His career will be longer (in his opinion) as a baseball player. Not sure if he will try to do the BO thing, ut this is where i think he stands. I am happy as a clam as an Angels fan. Only bad thing is if he tries two sports, would he press for the Chargers to be close to OC? Maybe Jags in a few years if they move to LA.

Haven't watch him alot this season have you? He far from inaccurate. Shark has helped him big time. Low completion rate is due to his WRs and not because of his passes.

He going to play pro -football. Right now the money pressure that some of the other JR are facing isn't affecting him.

He just scratched the surface of what he can do in his last game against Cal. I think this is a great move for Locker.

Sucks for the Broncos so. That means one less talented prospect sliding to us at #9 or 10, possibly one less QB on the board.

While I agree we should draft a QB if possible at 10 I doubt McD wil though.

Stupid. Especially after how much Bradford cost himself by staying at OU. And if they institute the rookie cap its really stupid. Jefatass is smarter than this guy.

You're probably right. If Clausen is still on the board when we come up to draft, he would think about it. I think he would have taken Sanchez this year if he had fallen to us.

Mallett is good but he is a statue in the pocket and has bad bouts of inaccuracy. Reminds me a little of Joe Flacco. But he has a big arm and plays in a pro style offense. If he is there past the second round, I say go get him as another talented project qb.

NFL needs to adopt the NBA's system for the rookie pay scale. You get drafted here, you get X, you get drafted here, you get XYZ.

Haha.

The only person on that list Locker beats out in the long run is Tebow because Tebow sucks.

McCoy and Bradford will both be better NFL QBs (in Bradford's case, he may require a bit of a better offensive line than McCoy will need).

I love watching the Cutler folks who can't deal with reality and still think he is the franchise who are grasping at air thinking Denver needs to draft a QB in the first round. Orton will more than meet the needs of this team as it builds. So guess what you will be disappointed Denver may draft a QB again in the later rounds but I will promise you it won't be in the first round. Denver will address the real needs on this team, OL and DL.

Locker is making a huge mistake by staying. Any Junior who is talented and has made a name for himself should declare for the draft this year. Its their last chance to get in before the rookie cap comes into play.
