Getting to know University Of Washington QB Jake Locker

Published on February 20, 2011 by     Seahawk Fanatic

Jake Locker

Height: 6’3″

Weight: 230 lbs.

College: Washington

Conference: Pac 10

Overview: Locker decided to return for his senior season, and his erratic performance has certainly hurt his draft stock. An extremely gifted athlete, Locker’s production does not match his talent. He possesses a cannon for an arm, but he is not an efficient passer. At this point, his greatest asset is his athleticism and it is unclear if he will ever be a starting quarterback at the next level. Also, Locker has a history of injuries due to his aggressive style of play. Overall, Locker has all the physical tools, and a team will likely take a chance on him in the first round despite his inconsistent production.

Noteworthy: Locker earned honorable mention All-Pac-10 in 2010 … He holds the record at Washington for quarterback rushing yards in a season (986 in 2007) and for a career (1,939). … Locker’s 29 career rushing touchdowns rank No. 3 all-time at Washington, and he ranks No. 2 all-time in school passing yards with 7,639. Locker was responsible for 496 career points, second-most in school history. … During the 2010 season, Locker guided Washington on three game-winning drives late in the fourth quarter.

Locker is tall enough with a sturdy muscular build and excellent athleticism for the position. Has a rocket arm to make all the throws and fits the ball into tight windows. Shows the ability to scan the field and check down with very good touch. Extremely mobile and can make plays with his feet. Fierce competitor and leader.
Does not show the ability to consistently make his progressions and find the open man. Misses on too many throws and his accuracy can be erratic at times. Abandons the pass early and relies too much on his feet. Plays a bit recklessly and has missed a lot of games due to injury.
