depends what we want
luck is a smart player but is a game manager he wont throw 300 yds and 3 td games too often
locker is a great prospect good footwork excellent arm good pocket presence etc. he can be a superstar qb but also he has a chance of becoming a bust
in conclusion luck is the safe pick but locker has a much higher upside
this is just my opinion though
as long as our o-line isnt stabilized, we need a mobile qb and neither luck nor mallett are mobile (in terms of speed).
True. Luck has much better talent. People act like U. of Washington has talent. But they don't. When Steve Sarkisian went there to coach they were last in talent level in the entire PAC 10. It's not even close. And their talent level with the exception of Locker is still very sub standard by PAC 10 measures.
With all that being said it's remarkable what Locker can do in the pocket and running. He carries the team by himself. And they aren't that good. That's why I think he's impressive.
