Summary: If Jimmy Clausen wasn't in this draft and I needed a quarterback, I wouldn't hesitate to take Jake Locker No. 1 overall. Locker could very well go No. 1 this year even with Clausen, but we�ll see. He is a highly unpolished prospect, but has shown the potential and intangibles to warrant a team believing he can develop. He will be a top-five pick. Don't be shocked if Al Davis or Daniel Snyder trades the farm for him.
Player Comparison: Jake Plummer. Plummer was a highly mobile quarterback with a similar build to Locker. Plummer was also an inconsistent decision-maker. But Locker isn't the gunslinger Plummer was.
Mike glennon got overpaid, no doubt. However, he's basically on a 1 year prove it deal. The Bears have no intention of spending all that cap money so why not take a flier on a guy like Glennon. And nobody wants to go to Chicago to play on a @[email protected] team, in @[email protected] weather and pay @[email protected] taxes. The bears have to overpay for free agents.
@Bac151 Thank you for pointing this out. I was going off of the fact that there were two charges, and working from the reason the second was dropped, the accuser stating she didn't want the media attention and settled out of court apparently. But you are right he wasn't arrested
