Jake Locker

QB – Washington
6’3″ 226 lbs

Washington quarterback Jake Locker announced today that he will return for his senior season for the Huskies. Locker, who many regarded as possibly the first quarterback to be taken in the 2010 NFL Draft decided that he needs another season under his belt before going to the NFL, stating “After a great deal of careful thought and deliberation, I have decided to return to Washington and play my senior year.”

According to the most recent mock draft by Todd McShay at ESPN.com, Locker was the number one overall pick, going to the St. Louis Rams. We at Draft Breakdown.com agreed that if Locker were to enter the 2010 NFL Draft, he would be the first quarterback taken in the draft.

Perhaps Jimmy Clausen, Sam Bradford and Colt McCoy should all cover Locker’s final year of living expenses at Washington….he just made them a lot of money.
