Washington quarterback Jake Locker may be the odds-on favorite to be the first player selected in the 2011 NFL draft. But in the course of discussing playing both quarterback and safety at Ferndale (Wash.) High, Locker told me, “If I had it to do over again, I’d play defense. I like the contact. You can use your adrenaline. On offense, you have to control it.”
We've all heard the "Locker to safety" stuff for years. But when you look at how big Jake is as a QB, the fact of the matter is that if he would've come here to play defense, he'd probably be 240 and one helluva middle linebacker right now.
