Default Locker Drawing Interest From Broncos

Locker Drawing Interest From Broncos, Titans, Vikings 15th March, 2011 - 4:52 pm NFL.com - Washington quarterback Jake Locker will conduct private workouts with at least three teams, according to a league source.

Locker will meet with Denver, Minnesota and Tennessee.

He is scheduled to meet with other teams as well. [READ]

I think Elway sees his conventional traits he likes in Locker but come on... we have so many needs and you have to give Tebow a chance to develop. I suppose we're doing our homework but I wouldn't take this guy unless we shipped Orton out for a 2nd AND he dropped to the 3rd.

The Broncos need to start Tim Tebow all year to see what he has got.

If he sucks and looks like he won't improve, then we can draft a QB in 2012....but give Tebow 2011 to see what he has.

I liked what I saw the last 3 games last year.

He is raw, but he is the most competitive hard working dude on the field.

If the Duke likes him enough to essentially trade Orton for him, I'd be ok with it. I realize McD is a ****ing idiot, but look what Brady Quinn was worth to us. Not to mention Matt Schab and Kolb.

If Denver was still running a style of the Shanahan WCO, Locker would be interesting player to look at. But with the pseudo McDaniels offense, I don't see the fit.

I totally agree, If he stinks it up we could get another top pick next year and maybe get Luck

I'd rather keep Orton and pass on drafting a QB this year. We have two young guys and a capable vet...and the WORST defense this team has ever had since I've been watching.

If we don't pick up 2-3 D-linemen on the first day, I'm going to to scratch John's name off of my trapper keeper...

I would give Elway the benefit of the doubt if Locker slides, but no higher than the 2b pick!

Like I said, before Elway and Fox did not draft Tebow so I won't be shocked if he's replaced or traded at any point. The point of the thread and Locker relax we are just gathering info much to do about nothing.

I'd ride with Tebow and see what we have in him at this point but, I don't believe for a second if FO got a solid offer if CBA is resolved he won't be moved.

The Panthers were probably the second most interested team in Tebow (Because of John Fox)

i agree. in Tebow's last 3 games with an interim coach, without many practice reps, on a neutered playbook, playing with a lot of guys who had more than likely already put themselves into cruise control for the final weeks of the lost season, he had the team playing harder and looking better than it had since the first half of the 09 season.

he earned a shot to show what he can do. if he goes out this year and he sucks, then next year we do whatever is necessary to get Luck or another QB for our future.

another thought on this situation. Locker is falling down draft boards a little. it is possible he slips into the 2nd and i for one wouldn't be at all surprised if he was around in the 3rd.

with that in mind and the fact that rookie contracts are going to be considerably cheaper now once the CBA is worked out, and the fact that Quinn is garbage. it might not be a terrible idea to get a guy like Locker in the middle of the draft to work in as a possible long term option at backup if Tebow proves to be the man, or as a potential QBOTF if Tebow stumbles.

that is one thing i liked about McDaniels coaching philosophy and wouldn't be upset if our new triumvirate had the same philosophy. no ones job was completely safe. you had to earn your starting spot. competition for every job.

what's going to be fascinating is when Elway throws Tebow under the bus. who is the omane going to back?

this thread makes me think the answer is Elway, but I'm sure we'll drag it out in every other thread for two years

Really?! There's not even a question here, Elway was the savior of Broncos football, Tebow is a hope. The only ones I can see vehemently backing Teebs are the newbie fans who don't know shiite.

We can go into next season with Tebow as our QB.
I have not seen any indication that Tebow will suck.
However, if he does, then we could go and try to get Luck from Stanford next year.
I want to see how all the hard work Tebow has put in so far pans out.
The guy is a competitor and I just don't see how he will be denied...

Elway is no longer the QB, he is in an entirely different role, with much different responsibilities and requirements. Not saying he won't do well, but to say that we have to back John's every move just because of his years at QB is inviting mediocrity or failure.

I wouldn't support John if he traded or cut Tebow loose before we got to see what he could do. Then again I don't see that happening.

I doubt it.
We have 3 QB's and one (Orton) seems to be on his way out, and the other (Quinn) is not what you want to have to keep things going in case of injury.

Locker will be a 1st round pick, most likely he'll go to Washington, so, no chance of us going after him when as of right now we only have one 1st round pick, and a QB is not what we should be drafting with that pick...

that's the great thing about the draft. next year Luck might not even be the concensus number 1 pick. injury may happen, he may have a ****ty season without his HC, someone like Barkley at USC could have a monster year and put themselves into the running for the number 1 pick.

point i am trying to make is, that possibly to get the QB we want if Tebow fails, we may not need to be the absolute worst team in the league.

look at Locker. last season was seen as a surefire 1st rounder, potential number 1. Leinart, the undisputed number 1 pick but fell to 10 a year later when another QB stole the spotlight from him after a badass season.

Funny you mentioned Barkley from USC. I've been sorta following his career ever since Pete Carroll made the controversial move of making him the starter.
I think Barkley could be a great NFL prospect...
