Similarly, Razzano was down on former Washington quarterback Jake Locker – until he watched more tape.

“Everybody says he’s inaccurate,” Razzano said as Locker completed an intermediate pass against USC on the TV behind him. “He’s not – he throws a great ball! It’s a low-percentage offense. There’s never anybody open underneath, and he’s got no protection. You can see it if you look closely enough. People are stupid.

“[Brett] Favre went in the second round, right? If you look at their college stats, Favre and Locker are practically identical. Now look at this play: Tell me this guy doesn’t move like Favre, scramble like Favre, throw like Favre. Pretend he has the number four on his jersey. His release is a lot like Favre, too.”

Razzano paused the tape and, from a stack in the corner of the room, pulled out an old, handwritten 49ers draft board to review his and other decision-makers’ grades on Favre. No one in the organization foresaw greatness, but the offensive coordinator at the time was the Southern Mississippi quarterback’s biggest proponent. “[Mike] Holmgren liked him the most,” Razzano said, smiling at the revelation. If this were a movie, that would be classified as foreshadowing.


Actually a good read interesting insite.

As much as I dislike Rodgers, I'd have to say that he's definitely the "next" Favre. He definitely did his studying of Favre and is a great QB. You guys have no idea how hard that was for me to type.

I will not be surprised if Locker is the most successful in the entire draft class however. I've mentioned in several different posts on this site, that I think he's gonna be the STEAL in this year's draft.

^ I didn't even read the article... I know about Jake Locker... He will be something special!

I think Locker could be the best of the bunch as well. He consistently makes plays with little to no pocket to work within. Lots of zip on his passes. He just seems to play at NFL speed already.

If Locker sits behind a veteran QB like McNabb(Washington/Arizona/Minny) then yes, he could be as good as Favre

I love what he says about Cam and he is spot on. Wish we had this guy as a scout

So he's gonna throw an enormous amount of interceptions and ride a d-lineman's coat tail to a SuperBowl?

Or is he gonna become the egotistical, self-centered, anti-team, married jerk that sends nude pictures to reporters?

It seems like a pretty apt comparison.

It's pretty hard not to root for Locker after seeing him in Gruden's QB camp. If we could somehow trade down, I'd be okay with taking him.

I like what he says about Jurrell Casey. Hopefully we take him with our top pick in the 3rd round.

If you read back on this guy he has been more wrong than right. He said Jake Delhomme was going to have a great year with more talent around him. Something he didn't get in Carolina.

Yep... I'm sure that he rode Reggie White's coat tails... Rip Reggie!
If Reggie were here he'd pray for you because that's just who he was. Favre and Co. Got him that ring!

Why am I even surprised by your ignorance anymore!?

Anti-team!???? Is that supposed to be a joke?

Egotistical and self-centered!? That's laughable!

The guy only got pulverized for his team 2 yrs in a row and was the consummate team player!

As far the the nude pics... They were sent to a woman... Not a man, which must be so hard for you to comprehend!

Agree that after the dust settles in a couple of years, Locker will probably be the best out of this bunch. As long as he goes to the right system, he will turn some franchise around. I doubt he makes it out of the top 15 on draft day.

Wouldn't mind picking him at all maybe not with first pick but middle to low 1st round. Respect the fact he stayed and actually got his degree.
