Sorry if this has been brought up before but I've been researching mock drafts etc and Locker is still considered #2 QB to Luck.

Downsides?

No thanks. I've seen enough of his play, being a Cali native & Pac-10 supporter myself, and he is not that good imo. He just doesn't make enough good decisions with the ball.

I have concerns over Locker's size honestly.

He does have a good arm but his decision making was ... questionable this year.

Jake Locker is not any good he is not playing well and does not show the arm talent that a first round QB should show, plus he plays in the Pac10 where the defenses aren't that great and he still looks average.

It's a bit unfair to say "he plays where the defenses aren't good" but completely ignore the talent he plays with.

The thing I like most about Locker is his competitiveness. I could see him turning into a great player in the NFL, I'm just not sold.

The same set of defenses that gives the majority a hard-on for luck?

Regardless, I would think locker is at least on our radar. Of the top QB's only Locker and Gabbert come into the draft without the worry of off-field issues. Any fan of this team should know how important that is to this team.

I wish Locker and Gabbert could both say they wanted to go back to school so this retarded board could talk up the next set of QBs as being a perfect fit for us. LOL.

his erratic decision making and inconsistent execution makes him a no for me. he might have the physical skills, but mentally, he just isn't there. he constantly makes poor decisions and can't execute when he makes the right ones.

His arm and decision making skills are not NFL quality. IMO he should have road the momentum and declared last year.
