School: Washington

Draft Result

Drafted in the 2011 Draft by the Tennessee Titans in the 1st round with the #8 pick.
First shocker of the draft, Locker going to the Titans is an interesting pick to say the least. Coming from a pro-style system. Locker is a great athlete and a football guy who fills a huge need for the Titans under center. Putting him in an offense that includes Chris Johnson and Kenny Britt has to make Titan fans happy, and he has the ability to be a great player for a long time in this league.

  • Played in a pro-style offense
  • Tremendous upside


  • Struggles to read defenses from the pocket
  • Needs to improve his accuracy and consistency
  • Has been beaten up behind a poor line at Washington which has hindered his ability to develop comfort between the tackles and thrown off internal clock (happy feet, not taking time to read the defense, inconsistency)
  • Inconsistent accuracy

  • Tries too hard and forces the action on occasion
  • Has failed to progress as expected
  • Not living up to expectations - struggled mightily vs. good defenses (Stanford, Nebraska)
