"There are no questions surrounding Washington QB Jake Locker's talent or work ethic. But a lot of improvement needs to take place as a pocket passer before I'm going to be sold on him as a long-term answer under center…"
I am pretty sure Kiper contradicted himself right there by saying that he doesn't doubt Lockers talent or work ethic but doubts isn't sold on him as "a long-term answer under center." I could understand him not being sold if he doesn't think Locker has the talent, but he says he doesn't doubt that.
I could also understand if he doubted how successful Locker is going to be in 2011, but I just don't understand where it can go wrong if he has both the talent and the work ethic. I guess that's just Mel being Mel.Kiper has also apparently gone back on his statement after the draft that the Titans could be the worst team in the league in 2011:
"There's enough talent on this roster where mortgaging the season while a quarterback tries to work out some pretty considerable developmental issues might be a mistake. Beyond that, for whoever plays quarterback, is there enough talent at the wideout position?"
Or maybe not. I don't really understand what he said right there.
