If Jake Locker can’t improve his passing accuracy, maybe he should move to another position. He’s fast enough to play wide receiver.
Locker ran the 40-yard dash in 4.52 seconds at the NFL Scouting Combine this morning, which means he’s faster than just about every quarterback in the NFL and faster than quite a few receivers, running backs and defensive backs as well.
According to the Seattle Times, Locker’s time is the fourth-fastest for a quarterback at the Combine in the last five years.
So we know Locker is really fast. What we don’t know is whether he’s an NFL-quality passer.
UPDATE: Nevada’s Colin Kaepernick unofficially ran a 4.53. Missouri’s Blaine Gabbert unofficially ran a 4.62.
