Wednesday links and notes — Locker, Foster, Corey Dillon and more

A surprising amount of interesting stuff out there this morning, so as Bluto might say, Let’s Do It.

— NFL.com reports that Jake Locker, after having a workout on Tuesday with the Vikings, will have workouts later this week with the Seahawks and Tennessee. Obviously, teams work out lots of players, so I’d always be careful to read too much into any one team working out a player — and I can’t count how many teams I’ve done stories on a guy later saying that the team that drafted him never worked him out at all. All just part of the process.

— He also reportedly will have one with Denver, and a Broncos blog examines whether that’s a good idea.

— The Shutdown Corner has Locker going to Philadelphia with the No. 23 pick.

— As Nebraska goes through spring practice, the specter of the loss to UW in the Holiday Bowl still stings.

— Here’s a pretty good scouting report of Mason Foster from Mocking The Draft.

Chris Polk, as he should have, made the Orlando Sentinel’s list of the Top 10 RBs to watch in 2011. (Though it calls him a senior, which he’s not, instead being a fourth-year junior. It’s likely his last year in college, though, so maybe it’s just semantics).

— Rivals.com has a fun list of the all-time Top 10 JC transfers and rates Corey Dillon No. 10.

— FootballStudyHall.com has some really interesting stuff on a stat it has devised to rate the offensive success per play of college football teams. And UW rated a somewhat surprisingly high No. 31 in the nation and fourth in the Pac-10. However, as may be no surprise, UW’s defense was vicitimized by one of the top 10 single-game offensive efforts of the year against Stanford.

— Here’s a look at the recruiting services used and paid for by Boise State.

— The Orange County Register breaks down UCLA’s QB position heading into the spring.

All for now.
