Quick Take:

Dynamic playmaker who was developed by QB guru Steve Sarkisian.  Is an ascending talent who is coming into his own with the versatility to run both spread and pro-style offenses, and has mastered a variety of deliveries from a  compact classic release.  Good instincts in the pocket.  new OL gave him an opportunity to show his adaptability under pressure, where he could hurry his footwork and release to complete the play.  Dangerous on the move, with a strong arm and good mobility.  Struggled with consistency throughout his career, but showed good command of his offense, working with new receivers and OL to improve the team from week to week.  A player whose career is on the rise, with a solid foundation.

Where He Goes in the Draft:

Top of the 2nd round.

What is Denver's Interest In Him?

Low.

Another first round QB that may be available for Denver's consideration at #36.  Not much has been mentioned about Locker from Dove valley, leading one to believe that interest in him is not as high as some of his peers.  But  he is a solid prospect who is worth the #36, and could be regarded by Denver as a falling value.

[Note:  All players in the table are ranked by overall grade within their round grouping, however, the round groupings are based on where this player will likely be drafted based on where teams are currently selecting in the draft.  Therefore a player is ranked within a group by his level of ability, but players in nearby groupings may have higher or lower actual grades, despite being in a different group.  Confusing enough for you? --Styg]
