Although he may have been the first quarterback taken in next spring's draft, Jake Locker has announced that he will return to the University of Washington for his senior season.
While this will hurt him financially in the short term, it's almost guaranteed to be make him a better player long-term. The track record for underclassman quarterbacks is poor, and Locker is particularly raw, completing only 53.4 percent of his passes at Washington (although this year that number went up to 58.4 percent under Steve Sarkisian).
