Browns Represented at Jake Locker's Pro Day

New, comments

According to The News Tribune, the Cleveland Browns were represented by senior offensive assistant Keith Gilbertson at the Pro Day of University of Washington quarterback Jake Locker. Locker reportedly had a solid showing at his Pro Day, although reviews were mixed. He completed 39/41 of his passes, but the throws were reported as not being too difficult. On one hand, he showed accuracy, but on the other hand, he didn't challenge critics.

"I think he helped himself considerably," said Rob Rang, senior draft analysis at NFLDraftScout.com. "The thing is … It’s not so much the one pro day. It’s the fact that he’s shown significant improvement every step of the process, from him being here at the University of Washington, to the Senior Bowl, to the Combine, to now Pro Day, you are seeing the steps of improvement. That’s the evidence teams are looking for that may cause them to believe that he could be a face-of-the-franchise starting quarterback in the NFL."

Maybe the media only reports on the big-name quarterbacks being evaluated, but I hope the Browns are taking a look at guys they can take in the fourth and fifth rounds too.
