Shanahan compares Locker to Plummer

Quote:
INDIANAPOLIS -- Washington coach Mike Shanahan -- whose team holds the No. 10 overall pick in the draft -- was asked about quarterback Jake Locker and comparisons to Jay Cutler.

"I would make more similarities to Jake Plummer," Shanahan said, "because of his ability to run."

Re: Shanahan compares Locker to Plummer

Hmmm... Savvy smokescreen, honest evaluation to the media, or both?

Surprised he didn't compare him to Elway.

Re: Shanahan compares Locker to Plummer

I don't at all see the comparison to Ryan Leaf unless you are just stating that you think he'll be a bust. That's a fair opinion, but he in no way behaves the way Leaf did. From all accounts thus far, it appears that Locker is pretty coachable so if he fails, it won't be due to a lack of heart or being a total douche like Leaf was.

Re: Shanahan compares Locker to Plummer

ive thought all along that locker is a new jake plummer, which is also why i thought shannahan probably liked him a lot. i wouldnt be shocked at all if locker was a redskin, but i would be surprised if we took him at 10. watch us trade back into the 1st round to grab him.

God I hope not. As much as I don't want a qb drafted this year, please don't trade away more picks go get back in the first round to take him. If you want him, trade down and wait or take him at 10. Just stop trading away our draft picks.

Last time I checked we don't have the first overall pick. And I hope the team is smart enough to not draft him with the #10 pick.

Re: Shanahan compares Locker to Plummer

I think what Shanny is saying, is this ...Locker is 2nd round talent, just like the Snake.

I'm betting his comments were a savvy smokescreen. I really think Locker will be in a Skins uniform come next season. I bet we trade back, gather picks, and select Locker (presumably before Seattle).

Re: Shanahan compares Locker to Plummer

Every time I have watched the guy play, he just doesn't deliver. I am sorry, but I do not see any upside about Jake Locker. He runs well, big deal. Vick ran great in Atlanta and he won jack. They get rid of Vick and bring in Ryan, more of a pure passer, and they make the playoffs. Everyone wants a mobile QB, but not necessarily a running one. Give me Steve Young in his prime over Vick anyday.

I wouldn't take Locker even in the 2nd round. His bowl game against Nebraska was ridiculous in terms of the broadcast team always fawning over him. His passing game sucked rocks. Every time I caught Washington on TV the past two years to see what the hubub was about, the guy's throws were wobbly alot of the time and his INTs were dumb. Yeah he can run, but he won't be able to do that as effectively in the NFL. I know I keep repeating myself, but Locker is probably the most overrated NFL prospect in recent memory. Jake Plummer performed way better at ASU than Locker did at Washington. Please Skins FO, for the love of god continue building the O line!!!!!! We could get Cam Newton in the first round and he would probably be average behind our crappy line, so why waste a pick on Locker.

Really? I can understand you not wanting to draft Locker but you're talking about a guy in Plummer that going into his final college year had 0 TD passes and 9 Int's in 11 games the year before. It doesn't get much worse then that. On top of that Plummer posted completion percentages at the collegiate level of 51%, 54%, and 57% respectively. He also only had more then 0 rushing yards in one year and that turned into a whooping 63 yards total. If anything Locker is an exponentially better pro prospect then Plummer, even with his recent regression.
