I've always been on the Mason Foster bandwagon. In fact, he's been the OLB on my Underrated list all year long. I just removed him in this latest update because it appears people are finally catching on and it looks like he is now considered to be a solid second or third rounder.

Kudos from Crimson Tide fans to see Julio the Great rising to the #2 ranking, he earned it through a vast improvement in 2010 over 09 when he played much of the season injured.

He made some circus catches last season, developed the skillset of getting separation, finding the holes in coverage & actually breaking patterns for TDs when he saw mistakes -- like in the 2nd qtr vs Auburn, a game where he racked up 199 yds in receptions vs. the NC. He also achieved a clutch reputation, cuting his drops & rarely missing on the jump ball, he was an absolute nightmare for 5-8 & 5-9 CBs & held his own against top of the line corners like Peterson at LSU.

Disagreeing about Cecil Shorts being so high on the WR list, he got his stats for a reason: vs. Div. III opponents.

RE: safeties -- Agree on Rahim Moore being #1. How did Tyler Sash drop so far? Also disagree about Carter at #2 & Black at #4, their lack of size could be prohibitive in the NFL when they have to cover & take down 6-5, 230-pounders. I've always been high on Deunta Williams from UNC but I realize there are injury concerns.

Kudos to Scott for hanging in on Jake Locker (sort of). While others are walking off the cliff like Lemmings i think smart people will keep it real. Locker's stock has been all over the map in the last week or so and he hasnt even played a game during that time.

A couple of guys i am torn on:

Robert Quinn, i have a hard time seeing peoples stock rise or stay the same when they havent played a game in a year.

Tyron Smith, In all the USC games i've seen he is no doubt a great athlete but i really question his strength and balance at the point of attack.

Nate Solder, maybe it's me, i just dont get it.

Nice to see Denarius Moore make his debut, even if I think he's still ranked a little low. :D

I think his 40 might surprise at the combine.

Day One Pick
02-12-2011, 12:44 PM
Marcus Gilbert is one of the most pure left tackles in this class and you have him 12th among tackles. Behind Ijalana, Love, Franklin, Boiling, and Ziemba who will all likely wind up as guards. Ziemba is at best a 5th round pick. You also have him behind Pinkston who is either a guard or right tackle only and a 6th round pick if he's lucky. Gilbert will almost certainly be drafted in the 1st round and will probably be a starting left tackle next year. I don't understand.

Enderle ahead of Kaepernik, Dalton, and Devlin is pretty questionable as well.

Wow are you missing the boat on Dion Lewis, Bilal Powell, John Clay, Jamie Harper, and Daniel Thomas.

Way too low on Phil Taylor, Jarvis Jenkins, and extremely low on Terrell McClain.

I'll stop there, but so much more is very questionable.

Dareus is a DT? I thought he was projected to be a DE.....Well, I guess he could go either way depending on the team that drafts him, this is the age of d-linemen specialization.

He & Fairley are 1 & 2, both on the top tier as they s/b, both of them have personally taken over & completely dominated entire games at the college level.

He did compare him to John Elway. When you make comparisons like that, it's hard not to jump off the bandwagon when you were one of the first ones on the bandwagon, and then kicked the driver out of the driver seat and drove it all the way Elway Lane.

Having him 3rd among QBs, and having a junior no one was really talking about 3 months ago ahead of him, well, that's pretty much eating every overpraised comment he has made about him. Locker should still be his #1 guy with the kind of things he was saying about him. JOHN FACKING ELWAY!!! You compare him that guy, he should be your #1 QB without question, otherwise you don't make the comparison. He has Locker ahead of Ryan Mallet. That's pretty much it. And I'm pretty sure, if memory serves me correctly, Scott wasn't a Mallet advocate (and secretly, I bet Scott despises Mallet, and rightfully so because Mallet is a lazy, clubfooted scumbag). If Luck entered, then he would have Locker 4th among QBs. That's jumping off the bandwagon / cliff, whatever you want to call it. There is nothing wrong with that, but it should have happened after the first Nebraska game where Locker showed some glaring flaws that had not been corrected from his junior season... and John Elway should have never been mentioned before that (considering he had not accomplished a ******* thing going into his senior season).

First, just to be clear, I never said Locker was the next John Elway. I said some in the NFL were making that comparison. With that said, there are / were definitely similarities there so I don't run away from it. Jake Locker is extraordinarily talented and every bit the physical freak that a guy like Cam Newton is.

I did drop Locker after he failed to impress at the Senior Bowl like I thought he would. Have I soured on Locker a bit in the last six months? Absolutely? How could you not? I'd be stupid to just bury my head in the sand and ignore the issues that are there. However, I probably still have him ranked higher than most and absolutely believe he will be a first round pick when all is said and done. Maybe as early as #10 overall!

So you brought up the comparisons and then agreed with the comparisons? That's the same thing. Whether you wish-wash it one way or the other, it's the same thing. Elway had a laser, pin point accuracy and flawless mechanics. Locker has none of the above. Locker is athletic, more athletic than Elway ever was, was on the west coast, surrounded by crap talent, showed great improvements with NFL coaching and... before you know it, with his 55% completion percentage, he's the next John Elway and the sure fire #1 overall pick that should have entered LAST YEAR he was so good. I thought the comparisons, or even hearing Elway and Locker in the same sentence, was as absurd then as it is now, after he has fallen on his face during his college career.

Like I said, I don't blame you. We're all high on guys that eventually fizzle out, lower on guys that succeed. I think it should have happened (him dropping) before the Senior Bowl even, but the ungodly praise for him was the problem. I saw the potential in him (and still do), but I thought he was a mid first rounder based on his potential alone (going into the season). I thought he could get to franchise QB status with more improving (as he showed during his junior year), but I wasn't handing him the crown right then and there. He has dropped to where I would take a QB with great character, intangibles and good, promising physical tools... top of round 2 / late round 1 (which is about the same grade I would have had on him at the end of his junior year). His arm strength is overrated, his accuracy is a big issue, his footwork is poor, his decision making is, at times, pathetic and he can be really bad under pressure. The NFL game is dominated by pocket passers that rely on getting the ball out on time, with accuracy and making proper (quick) reads / decisions. The NFL game is far from Locker's strengths and exposes his biggest weaknesses. Not seeing him progress this year is cause for some concern. Does he have potential? Can he actually reach it? Did he already reach his potential? When you don't improve or show progression, these are some concerning question marks that are perfectly valid. Basically, one of Locker's biggest strengths (potential), could also be one of his biggest weaknesses.

I don't doubt he goes in round 1. I expect him to be the 3rd QB taken in the mid to late first round.

Elway's completion percentage at Stanford wasn't much more than 55% over his career there. Matter of fact, if Jake Locker hadn't missed the 2008 season his career stats in the Pac 10 would be pretty much identical to Elway's. You can't say he had better talent around him either.

Locker won't be a first round pick, and in his prime might be the 16th best QB in the league...best case scenario.

Scott, what can Locker do that any ordinary run of the mill NFL QB can't? Running doesn't count. He's not a proven winner, so he doesn't have that intangible. I can't speak on terms of his leadership, but nothing jumps out that says he's extraordinary in that department. What am I missing?

Stanford had some pretty good offensive talent around Elway, not great overrall. Brian Holloway was a top tackle. RB Darrin Nelson, WR ken Margerum, TE Chris Dressell.

Washinton's talent wasnt as good in comparison. RB Chris Polk, WR Jermaine Kearse. After that it is pretty average to below average.

Elway had a steadier career and frankly just a better player but there are similarities from a physical standpoint. Both about the same size, extremely mobile with strong arms and of course the baseball background.

Elway's first year NFL stats were like Jimmy Clausen's this past season. Worse, I think. He had something like 2 TDs, 9 Int, a 40 odd % completion rate. Some people want you to believe he sprang from his mother's womb throwing 60 yard strikes. It took him a few years to look respectable in the league.

Could not disagree more. Locker is a winner and led his team to a number of wins in games they had no business being in talent-wise. USC (twice), Nebraska, etc. I truly feel Locker got the absolute most out of the talent around him at U-Dub. As for the leadership ability, that isn't even a question. In fact, it's Tebow-esque. Everyone RAVES about him.

After he showed improvement as a passer during his junior year and then went backwards as a senior. Then he displayed his erratic arm at the Senior Bowl. Atleast that's in my case. I considered him a fairly high prospect coming into the season. I expected he would pick up where he left off and show big improvement. He didn't though. I see athletic ability, arm strenght, and good size but it ends there for me. Nothing about him at this point leads me to believe he can be a true franchise QB in the NFL. To be a first round pick as a QB you have to show those qualities. He can and probably will be a starter for somebody, but probably won't ever be a star. He won't necessarily be a bust, won't be the worst QB in the league, but also isn't the next Peyton Manning either.

My only knock on Locker, and it's a big one, is accuracy. And it's really not THAT bad. Locker just throws everything high. If he can just keep his passes down a bit he'll be a franchise quarterback. Hopefully coaching can take care of that issue, because he has everything else.

Well, I guess you're still hailing him as the next John Elway, which you said you didn't do. Now you're saying he only has one flaw - accuracy - and its not even that bad. The last time I saw a nearly flawless QB, he was without question the best QB I ever saw. I didn't have him ranked 3rd among QBs in his class and a possible top 10 player, then again I'm not sure you've ever met a QB you didn't like. This thread is lunacy.

Lets just gets some **** right about Elway's legacy in college. Elway was a Heisman contender on a 5-5 team right up until the last week. He was an All-American. Elway led the Nation in passing TDs his senior year. Elway held Pac-10 passing records when he graduated. He's considered one of the greatest college players of all-time. He did all that while going 20-23 and never seeing a Bowl game. The guy started his legacy in college as Captain Comeback. He was drafted #1 overall and is viewed as the best QB prospect ever. Is Jake Locker anywhere close to those accomplishments? Accomplishments which you guys routinely **** on like he did next to nothing in college by throwing out his bad W-L records or average career completion percentages.

I got no problem if someone says, "Jake Locker reminds me of a John Elway type of player, similar physical attributes yada yada yada..." I wouldn't agree with it (the lack of a fastball, arm strength not as good, release not NEARLY as quick, leadership is not nearly as evident on the field, doesn't have the swagger Elway had, plus he doesn't throw the ball nearly as well as Elway did... simply put.). But when you started, and continue to do in this thread, defending Locker by comparing his failures to Elway's average looking stats, or never winning a bowl game, or being surrounded by bad talent or saying that they have similar completion percentages is when you make no argument whatsoever. It's a lazy, terrible argument. Every time someone makes an argument against Locker, you just point to Elway's college career? Do you guys even consider the time period differential? When completing 55% of his passes wasn't an insult? And actually pretty good?

"This deserves being posted again!" Why? Because it's factually incorrect? And you're too ignorant to realize it? I'll re-post it a 3rd time because it's pretty damn funny. What does Jimmy Clausen's failures have to do with Elway's greatness, which somehow correlates to Jake Locker being a great NFL player? Did Jimmy Clausen throw 3 TDs in the 4th QT against IND as rookie, which started a "comeback" reputation, which was also a pivotal win in making the playoffs? Did JimBag do any of that as a rookie QB? Were opposing players calling JimBag the "truth" in preseason? Raving about his physical abilities? Saying he was "worth every penny"? Because I'll tell ya, that's what players were saying about John Elway after his first preseason game. Sounds like respect to me. Why? Because he threw the ball all over the ******* field and rejuvenated a city and an entire organization. Imagine Tim Tebow being a great passer in college and being drafted #1 overall. Elway had that kind of pressure and expectations as a rookie. I don't see Locker coming close to that.

So do you see how insanely ******** that sounds? Yet, you act like that moron just said something insightful and meaningful to Jake Locker's abilities. Lets bring up Troy Aikmen. Aikmen went 1-15 in his rookie season. Maybe Jake Locker is Troy ******* Aikmen because Troy sucked once too!! Lets put 3 rings on Locker's fingers right ******* now.

I'll let you guys watch for yourselves. The legend... Jake Locker- oh, ****, I mean John Elway.

High passes in the NFL get wide receivers placed on the IR and or get picked off. Accuracy is something you wake up in the morning with or you don't. Coaching and proper footwork and mechanics can only improve accuracy to a degree.

But I agree, if he was an accurate passer he could be a franchise QB. But that could be said about a lot of quarterbacks.

I thought the comparisons, or even hearing Elway and Locker in the same sentence, was as absurd then as it is now, after he has fallen on his face during his college career.


.

I've compared him to Elway as well but I compare him most often to Akili Smith. He has the physical skill-set of both Elway and Smith... and for your information, Elway, when he entered the league, was among the most physically gifted QBs to ever play at the time. Locker is NOT far more athletic than Elway ever was. You're showing your age there... or at least your late intro to football as the Elway you surely must be thinking of is the one that won 2 Super Bowls and not the one that lost 3. Elway was an athletic marvel at the time. And like Jake Locker, and like Akili Smith, was a very highly touted and highly rated baseball player that stood right around the 6'3 225 lbs that Smith and Locker were and ran for well over 3000 yards and 30 TDs in his NFL career.

I'm no Locker fan by any means, but considering he's only played 2 years in his entire playing career in anything that resembles a pro style offense, it is easy to suggest that an NFL coach will really like what they see and believe that they can mold him into the next Elway. I believe, however, that Locker is more like Akili Smith who left after his junior season and also didn't play in a pro style offense for long (Jeff Tedford was his collegiate OC). And the truth is that Locker and Smith's careers would have been eerily similar if Locker had followed Smith's footsteps into the NFL as a junior and plunged headfirst to the top of a draft as a franchise NFL QB. Anyway, there is a ton of untapped QB potential there, and that is what will ultimately get him selected in the middle of round 1.

After watching the video above, I will repeat my Elway-Locker physical comparisons. 6'3 220 or so (Elway would have been bigger if he played later, just a matter of training and nutrition), great right arms, excellent speed and mobility... but I will say this... MAN I MISS ELWAY! Yes, Locker is no Elway, but who is? How many guys have that same magic and confidence?

Here are some things I learned or relearned watching the video:
1) Elway got himself a nasty perm. He went from straight-haired to Achy Breaky Billy Ray Cyrus there in the early 90's. Either way, Elway beats Locker in the hair department hands down. Mop-top/permed beats flat-top everytime unless we're talking Unitas.

2) Elway's footwork in Reeves' non-WCO was far better as a rookie than I thought it would be. I still remember Marino and the Redskins taking the dropback from OC in a backpedal. Elway had pretty nice footwork, the first 3 steps were long, the last two were short and choppy. I didn't think they even taught that the early 80's nless you were playing for Bill Walsh.

3) Elway had some balls and always turned it on when it mattered most. Throw the stats out of the window when he was back there because if it was close late, he was going to beat you. That post to Vance Johnson on 4th and 10 when he got knocked flat wasn't a perfect pass but it was close enough and was a great throw.

4) When comparing QBs of two different eras you have to adjust the stats. If a guy had a QB rating of 85 in a year where the average QB rating was 75, you have to take that into account. It's far better to have a QB rating of 85 when the average is 75 than it is to have a QB rating of 90 when the average is 85. Everybody needs to take this into account when looking at ratings, completion %, etc.

5) I've gone on record as one who has compared Locker to Elway physically, but I've also done the same thing with Locker and Akili Smith, but the physical nature doesn't make the player. JaMarcus Russell physically reminded me of King Kong... but he sure as hell didn't play like it. It probably had something to do with the fact that King Kong was smarter and had a smaller appetite.

And this is where I finally agree with Scott on something. Two years in a pro style offense means his flaws are more easy to correct, they are less ingrained over years and years of repetition.

The thing is, it doesn't matter what any of us, or 31 NFL teams think, there is at least 1 NFL team that believes they are the one to bring out the best in Locker and turn him into the next Elway. Show me an NFL OC that doesn't think he can't turn water into wine and I'll show you the next coach of the Virginia Tuskers UFL franchise.

Also, I know you have the final rankings for each year in the archives, but i think it would be cool if you had the other ones too. I feel bad giving you suggestions since you probably get them all the time.
