What They Are Saying About Jake Locker
"Don't get me wrong," Locker explained. "I really look forward to the N.F.L. But it's not going anywhere. You can never go back and play college football."
"Don't get me wrong. I really look forward to the N.F.L. But it's not going anywhere. You can never go back and play college football."
"That's the best quarterback we've played in nine years here. Jake Locker has ridiculous talent."
"He is, in my opinion the most difficult weapon to defend in Division I football."
"Locker is a stud, and he's hard to bring down. I can't say enough about that kid. We would take him on our team any day."
"He is a phenomenal player, so we used every weapon we thought we had and I think what it showed is we're going to have to look a little further if we ever play a young man like that again."
"He's a big guy with great speed. He throws the ball well. I don't know who to compare him to other than Jake Locker. He's done an excellent job. He's a very talented young guy."
"He's got a big, powerful lower body and speed. He's got the ability to make people miss but also shed tacklers. If I didn't have to coach against him, I'd be a lot bigger fan."
"The kid's one of the best players in the nation, as versatile as it gets for a quarterback."
"For my two cents, Washington quarterback Jake Locker is the Pac-10's most valuable football player. He can beat you throwing, running, improvising and by sheer will, if nothing else."
"If you had to ask me right now who is going to be the number one pick in the 2011 draft, I would say it's etched in stone it's going to be Jake Locker. You can mark that down. Jake Locker, if he's not the number one pick, it's an upset.''
"To me, [Locker] was considerably more gifted than Sam Bradford. Sam Bradford's Pro Day was exceptional. The accuracy is what you want in a quarterback. So he's got everything you want and is going to be a solid pro. But if it were me making the decision and I had to pick, Jake Locker is the guy I would feel more comfortable with. He has more raw talent, is just more gifted physically and his character and that he's a big, strong leader and super competitive. He would have gotten consideration with that first overall pick.''
