    Locker keeps improving, if he could just learn to not take big shots he'd survive a full season and you and everyone else would see.

    But Im fine if we go in another direction, make him compete cause clearly staying available 17 weeks is an issue for him.

    What do you mean learn? I guess he could hit the gym? But for the most part he don't see him falling wrong or anything. I thought he did a great job of sliding correctly this year.

    He did wise up some since entering the league, but he still thinks he can play RB and take shots from LBs and DEs.

    You ever closely watch Fitz play within the pocket? The instance he feels pressure he climbs the pocket and protects himself. Sometimes that means lunging into a fetal posistion, which looks gay, but it keeps you alive. Jake Locker often lowers his shoulder and opens himself up to getting hit. He has to see hes not bigger than the guys hitting him anymore.

    Good point. I honestly feel very comfortable when Fitz takes off. With Locker I do get squeamish. I haven't payed attention to the way Locker takes sacks either. That is kinda why I asked "learn". I wanted to know if you saw him like fall down wrist first or something weird like that. In which case, ok yea, dude needs to know how to take a sack.

    I don't know. He really needs to drink his milk or something, haha.

    According to a few reports, several NFL teams don't feel like Teddy is a 1st round talent. Questions are developing regarding his football.

    WOW, that kind of news is out of left field. Gonna need a link to one of those reports bro. I have only heard Teddy going HIGH 1st round and many say Texans gonna take him. And if not them, Jags or Browns could easily use his services.

    You are about to get a number of people coming in and tearing you apart. You need some links to back up the statement. Like this:

    I have Bridgewater as a top 10 talent in this draft but I know several teams that don't view him as a 1st round player.



    Even still the evidence is weak
