Before the draft tonight, I was mainly hoping we'd trade back and stock up on some picks.
Then came Jake Locker.
I laughed with so much joy. I was terrified with Gabbert still on the board. I went into tonight with the hopes of getting either Locker or Dalton. Locker was my favorite of the quarterbacks in this draft and I'm happy to see him join us.
He's going to bring on a great new era for us. No more suicide crap. No more pads in the stands and a QB expecting praise for something he hasn't earned. Locker brings dedication, determination, intelligence, and a great attitude. He's a natural leader and is a team player. Stayed for his senior year in Washington to take his guys to a bowl and he did it.
I for one, welcome Jake Locker with arms wide-open
Best of luck to him.
