Washington coach Mike Shanahan — whose team holds the No. 10 overall pick in the draft — was asked about quarterback Jake Locker and comparisons to Jay Cutler.
“I would make more similarities to Jake Plummer,” Shanahan said, “because of his ability to run.”
Specifically, that ability to make plays on the move, to get outside the pocket, is a strength of Locker’s. When people question Locker’s accuracy, it is his accuracy from the pocket. He’s as accurate as any quarterback in this draft throwing on the move.
Shanahan acquired Plummer from Arizona, and he took the Broncos to the playoffs. In 2006, Plummer was benched for Cutler — who was then a rookie — and retired after the season.
Shanahan said at the end he only watched a few games featuring Locker and looked forward to studying him more.
