Overview:

Jake Locker enters the season as the unanimous #1 QB in the draft class. Many people project him to go 1st overall if that team needs help at QB. He definitely has the potential to be a franchise QB. He is the leader of a below average and he doesn’t stop till the final whistle blows. He will have 2 years under his belt in a pro-style system which has helped him become a much better QB. He has shown a lot of improvement but he still needs to get even better in some areas. His biggest area to work on is his footwork. It is far too often inconsistent and it leads to some terrible throws. He also has to get better at throwing the ball away. Too often he tries to force throws and make plays for his team so he can win. I can understand his frustrations but that will not work in the NFL and he has to change that mind-set. He does have outstanding athleticism and a great arm. If he continues on and improves like he did last year, he should be a heck of a QB.
