Washington quarterback Jake Locker was once penciled in as the No. 1 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. After struggling as a senior, however, Locker had moved so far down draft boards that he saw fit to do something that very few prospects with massive hype ever do: participate in the Senior Bowl.
That's what Locker has done this week, and just like during the regular season, Locker is getting mixed reviews at the Senior Bowl.
For all of the dozens of reports coming out of Mobile this week - and all of them mention Locker, because he's easily the biggest name there - boiling them down into one cohesive report is a labor-intensive exercise in futility. Still, I felt compelled to do so in my latest feature for SBNation.com (linked above) not to prove the point that there is no consensus scouting report, but to give readers a basis for formulating their own opinions on Locker.
Who's watching the Senior Bowl this weekend? Anyone supremely interested, like me, in seeing how Locker applies a week of NFL coaching to a live game setting?
