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.

What I like most about Locker is the way he carries himself. He's a leader. Most of all, he carries himself like a badass. Thats the kind of QB I'd want if I were a guy in the trenches or catching passes.

When I look at Clausen, I see pretty boy, and then arrogant. I bet Locker would kick his ass in a fist fight.

I think Mallett is the next Favre actually (the bad version).

But can he take a hit?

To me, that was one of Fahveruh's strong points. He would get hit hard, come up smiling and even offer to help up the guy who laid into him. That's some old school poo right thar.

I'd like to see if Locker is capable of the same, then I will pay attention to the whole "next Fahveruh" talk.

You need to watch Gruden's QB camp with Locker. The man welcomes contact. Gruden was right when he said he runs like Peyton Hillis.

He's a converted tailback with unquestioned toughness, yes he can take a hit.

So in 20 years Favre won 1 Superbowl, a feat matched by Rodgers in 3 years.

Favre's stats his first 2 years as a starter- 37 Tds, 37 Ints 78 passer rating, not exactly stellar.

In all fairness in his third year as a starter he did throw 33 Tds versus 14 Ints and a passer rating of 90. Still Favre will be in the Hall of Fame based on his longevity and consecutive game streak as much as he will be because he was great throughout his career or won multiple super bowls.

Jake Locker is the real deal and will end up being the

best QB of the 2011 class. He is fast,smart,a leader and

tough. He used to be a running back and can get outside the

pocket and make plays. He will be a bargain in this draft.
