Monday night links — Locker a PFW honorable mention All-American

I missed this earlier, but UW quarterback Jake Locker was one of seven quarterbacks named as honorable mention today on Pro Football Weekly’s All-American team.
As the magazine explained it in a press release, its “All-America team annually honors the most talented players in college football and is determined based on considerable feedback from NFL evaluators taking into consideration a player’s pure talent and contribution to his team. Unlike many other teams awarding the best college football players, PFW places an extra premium on true talent and draft value in the selection process. However, participants are expected to have contributed for the bulk of the season to qualify, leaving off many talented prospects who were limited this season, such as Sam Bradford, Dez Bryant, Jermaine Gresham — all expected to be the first players drafted at their respective positions.”
So at QB, the magazine had Colt McCoy listed as its All-American with Locker; Jimmy Clausen, Notre Dame; Ricky Stanzi, Iowa; Daryll Clark, Penn State; Ryan Mallett, Arkansas; Armanti Edwards, Appalachian St.; and Jerrod Johnson, Texas A&M listed as honorable mention. Obviously, no Tim Tebow there, indicating the magazine’s scouts don’t think much of his pro ability.
Locker was the only Husky named to the team.
