Reading the comments and looks like quite a few of you took in the Senior Bowl today to watch the two Huskies participating — Jake Locker and Mason Foster.
Both played for the North, which lost 24-10 (though that’s almost irreveltant in the grand scheme of things).
As you can see, Foster continued his strong week by leading all defenders with eight tackles, five solo.
Locker was 6-10 for 98 yards and was 2-2 for 49 yards in leading the North’s lone TD drive in the third quarter.
I actually didn’t watch the game, so I don’t have any observations to add. Most will tell you what happens in the game doesn’t mean as much as the Monday-Wednesday practices, which we batted around a lot on here.
It sounds as of the consensus is that Foster helped himself and could be taken as high as the second round, while Locker got more mixed reviews, whether he helped or hurt himself depending on who is doing the talking.
Locker and Foster will each now prepare for the NFL Combine Feb. 23-March 1.
