    Isn't it interesting Locker seems to be the only quarterback the Dolphins haven't had a tryout with.

    They could be waiting for his Pro Day on Wednesday to set something up as well. I'm pretty sure we will be in attendance.

    Cons

    He's not accurate.
    He doesn't throw well in the pocket.
    He run's to much.
    He doesn't read defenses well.
    He regressed his senior year compared to his Junior year.
    He didn't run a pro style offense in college which means he won't be able to compete as a starter for a couple years.
    He's didn't throw enough touchdowns in his college career.

    Pros

    He has good speed
    He throws well outside the pocket

    Pros

    He has good speed
    He throws well outside the pocket
    More Pros:

    He is also tough as nails, has made plays . . . in the pocket, his junior year to win huge games. Excellent work ethic and has been in the pro system for 2 years. At times, he carried his team to victories. He has a great arm.

    Teams are going to have to figure out what is going on mentally that is causing him to be inaccurate. Personally I think alot has to do with the lack of trust in his OLine, less to do with mechanics . . . but maybe it is just something he is going to struggle with, which is not good because you want the problem to be fixable at the next level. If it is fixable . . .he has a chance to become the best QB in this class.

    they said last night on path to the draft that team grades on jake locker are all over the place...some wouldn't touch him til the 3rd or 4th round...some have him as the 2nd or 3rd qb off the board
    hoops scoops 2012 season ..."in 2014 ryan tannehill etches his name in stone amongst the games elite qbs"..."ryan tannehill and andrew luck will carry the afc for the next decade plus the way peyton manning and tom brady have this last decade plus"
