Default Jake Locker

Just watched the Jon Gruden interview with Jake Locker. I am impressed with this kid. His career will be interesting to follow. I am NOT advocating that we take him, just that I will be interested to see if Minnesota, takes him or even he even goes in the 1st round http://search.espn.go.com/jake-locker-jon-gruden/

Zero doubt in my mind that he will be a first round pick. In fact I am 90% sure he goes in the top 15.

I think Shanny and Co. pull the trigger on Locker at 10.

I like Locker alot, and I think he got over analyzed because he stayed at UW. If he goes to Shanny/Kubes system he could be very good.

Lol. Horrible pick. Locker has **** for accuracy. In fact, it went down this year from last. At least Young was a winner...

Reminds me of Jake Plummer. I'd much rather have Gabbert.

Gabbert is Alex Smith 2.0. I'd probably take the next Plummer instead.

yeah, I loved Plummer when he came out and he was the last high water mark for this franchise. Too bad he didnt love to work as hard as shanny or they both might still be here. I think Locker could be the best QB in this class, but to take him at 8? Ballsy move Tenn. Does Gabbert last til Minnesota at 12 and blow the rumored trade of Orton to them? Does Shanny take him here?

I think Shanny was planning to take Locker at 10. He did the best thing for the skins by trading back and picking up a 2nd rounder. I think he may take Ponder at 16.

There won't be a great QB from this class anywhere, so they're all wasted picks, IMO.

I like Locker, I think he and CJ are intriguing together in that offense.

Pretty much. Awesome for us with two early 2nds. Lot of 1st round talent falling in our laps.

Hard to be accurate when your running for your life because your line sucks, and then your WR's lead the conference in dropped passes.
