Live chat at noon — And Draft Day links

First, a note that we’ll hold our weekly live chat today at noon where we can talk about the Draft, spring football, or any other aspects of UW/Pac-12 football.

Now for a few links. …

— We had a lot of coverage in the paper and on-line today of the draft, including this story by Danny O’Neil on Jake Locker, who after years of speculation, should finally get an answer tonight on where he will go and when he will be taken.

— I wrote this story on the history of UW quarterbacks and the draft that includes a chart.

— And I also had this story on Mason Foster, who is sure to go at some point over the next few days, probably Friday.

— O’Neil has Locker going 10th to the Redskins.

— About a million mock drafts out there, but of the more notable, Mel Kiper has Locker going 12th to the Vikings in his final, official stab at it; the National Football Post has Locker going 25th to the Seahawks and Foster as the 52nd overall pick to the Giants; and the Shutdown Corner also has Locker going 12th; and Rob Rang has him going 16th to Jacksonville (with three of the others on that list sending him to the Redskins and one to the Seahawks). So basically, almost everyone has him going in the top 16 and everyone in the first round.

— Interesting news out of the NCAA today as it has established a bowl task force in the wake of the Fiesta Bowl scandal, and also placed a three-year moratorium on new bowls. Here’s more on that from USA Today.

Michael Silver of Yahoo.com writes that QBs could be in high demand in the draft tonight, which would obviously be good news for Locker.

Jermaine Kearse is on Ted Miller’s list of returning 1,000-yard receivers in the Pac-12.

— Finally, remember that there is no UW practice today as it was moved to tomorrow (Friday).

All for now.
