2013

Following a junior season in which he was virtually impossible to cover, Lockett elected to delay the start of his NFL career another year. One of the most exciting and prolific all-purpose athletes in college football, Lockett had his most productive season as a receiver in 2013, catching 81 passes for 1262 yards (15.6 avg) and 11 touchdowns. He also averaged 26.5 yards per kick return on the season, down from his 30-plus averages in previous years (35.2 in 2011, 32.8 in 2012). An exceptional route runner, Lockett made some of the Big 12’s top cornerbacks look silly with his ability to sink his hips, sell his fakes, and accelerate out of breaks, providing a security blanket for junior transfer quarterback Jake Waters with his ability to gain consistent separation. He lacks consistency catching the football, particularly when he has to extend to catch passes in traffic, and will struggle with physicality at the catch point. Even so, his ability to separate and dynamic run-after-catch skills will make him an ideal two-way go option from the slot in the NFL. -Jeremy Hyde, 5/15
