Locker: Is it just him or his team

"1/30/10: Jake Locker's poor Senior Bowl week culminated with a pedestrian performance in the actual game. He made a couple of nice throws in the second half, but the negatives completely outweighed the positives. Locker once again displayed his trademark inconsistency and poor accuracy. He nearly got Titus Young killed on two throws because his passes were too high. He was almost intercepted in the end zone by DeMarcus Van Dyke. He fumbled twice. His footwork, as detailed by Mike Mayock, was very poor. His decision-making wasn't very good either. Locker is now a Round 2-3 prospect. There are things to like about his skill set, and with good coaching, he could become a solid quarterback in the NFL. However, I see a lot of Jake Plummer in him - which, unless you're Mike Shanahan, is not a good thing. 1/28/10: After the North team finished practice, I tweeted (@walterfootball), "Considering moving Jake Locker to Round 2 in my next 2011 NFL Mock Draft update. Inconsistent all week, but just awful today." I've tried to be patient. I figured Locker would improve during each succeeding practice. But Locker had his worst practice at the Senior Bowl on Thursday. His accuracy was just terrible. Even Mike Mayock, who has been somewhat of a Locker supporter, could only say this about the Washington quarterback: "He's embraced the challenge. He's putting himself out there." What the hell does that mean? And is that really the most positive thing he could come up with? Locker really needs to have a good game Saturday, or he'll be in my second round next week." Was it washington or was it Locker that caused the 50% completion %? My guess a little of both and Locker isn't as talented as one would hope he was. He just is too erratic.
