Locker struggles early

MOBILE, Ala. – Washington quarterback Jake Locker was supposed to answer all the big questions here in Saturday’s Senior Bowl and all he did was generate more questions in the North’s first two horrid series  of the game that were there and please get out here at Ladd Peebles Stadium as the South rose again with a 17-0 lead with 4:05 left in the first half.  

On the first series on second-and long, Locker missed Wisconsin tight end Lance Kendricks over the middle and on the second series on third-and-long he threw over the middle to Boise State wide receiver Titus Young on a ball Young could have had but couldn’t haul down. Locker gave way to Iowa’s Ricky Stanzi after completing one of three passes for two yards.

The third-and-long got set up by an eye-opening play on second down when Texas defensive end Sam Acho sacked Locker and forced a fumble. Acho beat Colorado left tackle Nate Solder with an inside move the 6-9 Solder isn’t supposed to give up as a potential top ten pick.
