Depending on who you talk to, Locker's draft stock has been wavering for two years now. Many draft pundits had Locker pinned as a first-round pick after the 2009 season due to his rare combination of size, speed, and arm strength. Despite those skills, the NFL Collegiate Advisory Committee warned Locker that he would not receive a first-round grade and the quarterback chose to stay in school for the 2010 season. A decline in performance this season has haunted Locker, who is now a projected mid-round selection in the 2011 draft.
