Tuesday morning links — Locker to work out for Vikings today, and more

While the NFL is in lockout mode with its current players, the process of the draft goes on. And The National Football Post reports today that the Vikings — who have the 12th pick in the first round — are expected to have a private workout today with Jake Locker. It also reports that the Titans will have a private workout with Locker in Seattle later in the month.

Locker and other UW draft-eligible playeres are also expected to participate at UW’s Pro Day on March 30.

And by the way, I’ve gotten questions about others that may participate in that and there is no real official list, and guys often can change their minds until the last minute. But I would assume that Locker, Mason Foster, Nate Williams and Victor Aiyewa would be there for certain. And sometimes, guys who have been out of college for a year or two, but still hoping for a pro shot, also turn up.

IN OTHER NEWS. …

— Here’s a view from a Minnesota fan of what it might mean that the team is working out Locker today.

— ESPN.com’s Ted Miller rates Mason Foster No. 5 on his list of the best players in the Pac-10 in 2010.

— The Eugene Register-Guard says Oregon is staying mum at the moment regarding some of the recent news regarding the football team’s use of recruiting services.

— Miller also writes about an interesting spring game promotion at Stanford.

— Nebraska’s running backs are looking to get tougher this spring.

I’ll get at least one Q-and-A up later today. All for now.
