Could Top Dawg Go Top Ten???
What’s Jake Locher’s future in the upcoming NFL draft? Peter Schrager is a frequent contributor to NFL and college football coverage on FOXSports.com. He gives his thoughts on the head husky prospect on FOXSports.com.
10. Washington Redskins (6-10), Jake Locker, QB, Washington: Locker?! In the top 10?! Donovan McNabb’s certainly not the long-term answer at quarterback in Washington, and few would say Rex Grossman — despite a nice finish to the 2010 season — is, either. The Shanahans — head coach Mike and offensive coordinator Kyle — are going to want a young quarterback that they can groom and who will be ready to play right away.
A four-year starter at Washington who played in a pro scheme under Steve Sarkisian, Locker could sneak into the top 10 and be handed the ball immediately in D.C. in 2011. A strong showing in Mobile last week only boosted Locker’s stock, and quite frankly, the young man could end up going even earlier after he wows in his individual workouts. His accuracy is an issue and will have to be worked on. What better duo to work with him than the father-son combo in Washington, D.C.?
