Explanation of Player Grading System


The Breakdown

Locker very easily could have been the #1 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, had he decided to declare early. However, he decided to stay in school and further develop his game as a quarterback. Locker has all the physical tools you look for in an NFL quarterback and his leadership and toughness can’t be questioned. Locker is also a very mobile quarterback and is a threat to run the ball when given the opportunity. He needs to further develop his abilities to read the defense and work on his decision making, but the potential is there to be a great NFL player.
