Jake Locker has followed up his solid Pro Day effort without some “excellent” private workouts, according to Rob Rang of CBSSports.com.
Rang spoke with a source with the Vikings who called Locker’s workout “very impressive” and that the Washington product “might be in the mix” for the No. 12 pick.
Meanwhile, a Seahawks source told Rang that Locker was “excellent” on the field and on the whiteboard during his visit with Seattle.
While we don’t doubt Locker has performed well, it’s hard to accept these statements at face value. Why would any source with either team giving such a glowing review of Locker if they were truly interested in him?
If anything, hearing both teams send praise towards Locker makes us think they are looking elsewhere with their first pick.
