The NFL Draft is, thankfully, just five days away now. And we’ll have all kinds of coverage of it this week, kicking off with a pair of stories for Sunday’s paper on Jake Locker.
— First is Danny O’Neil’s story in which he asked a number of NFL experts to evaluate Locker’s pro possibilities.
— Next is my story looking at how Locker and his representatives have gone about planning some of his off-field activities.
— Finally is this chart on the top QBs available.
— Speaking of Locker, he was actually at UW’s scrimmage on Saturday, which I noted in my story on that even for the print edition.
— Here is the scrimmage report from UW’s official site, GoHuskies.com.
— All kinds of stories out there linking Locker to various teams. But this one from the Minneapolis Star-Tribune has lots of good detail on what the Vikings may be thinking.
— Here’s more on UW’s new president.
— Cal, which has seemingly had a deep stable of RBs for years, suddenly has question marks at that spot and may need to depend on one-time UW commit Brendon Bigelow in the fall. And it appears as if Zach Maynard is running No. 1 at QB for the Bears.
— USC coach Lane Kiffin, meanwhile, says he’s unsure which direction the Trojans are headed after a spring game in which the defense got the better of the offense.
— Here’s a look at Utah’s post-spring depth chart.
— Arizona State bucked the trend by getting a big performance from its offense in its spring game.
All for now.
