Lappano on KJR-AM

In case you missed it, Tim Lappano was on KJR-AM today. Here’s a link.
I heard it driving around so I don’t have any exact quotes. But there was lots of talk about Jake Locker and the risks involved in his running, especially up the middle. Lappano said he’s trying not to have Locker run more than 10-12 times a game, not including scrambles.
Locker is averaging 15.2 carries per game (137 in nine games) but that also includes 15 sacks.
Take out the sacks and he’s running 13.5 times per game.
Lappano also talked about Locker’s impact on recruiting and said it can only help and that he can’t imagine why any receiver or tight end wouldn’t want to play with Locker.
Hugh Millen asked Lappano if he’s worried about Locker not staying very long, saying he’s heard rave reviews from NFL scouts. Lappano said he didn’t want to think that far ahead but said he expects Locker to stay around a while.
Still, I think this time a year from now it could be a pretty legitimate question of just how long Locker will be in a Husky uniform. Remember, he can leave after next year if he wants.
I was looking at a 2009 mock draft that had UCLA’s Ben Olson going as the first overall pick. Really, Ben Olson? Wouldn’t you rather have Jake Locker than Ben Olson right now, let alone two years from now? Here’s another one that had the Seahawks taking Todd Boeckman in the first round and left me with the exact same thought. Boeckman’s having a nice season and is a good fit for what Ohio State does. But do you really think you’d rather have Boeckman than Locker long-term? Upshot is, Locker’s likely to have lots of options.
