Pac-10 lunch links: Locker showing promise in pocket
Posted by ESPN.com's Ted Miller
It really don't matter if I lose this fight. It really don't matter if this guy opens my head, either. 'Cause all I wanna do is go the distance. Nobody's ever gone the distance with Creed, and if I can go that distance, you see, and that bell rings and I'm still standin', I'm gonna know for the first time in my life, see, that I weren't just another bum from the neighborhood.
- Washington quarterback Jake Locker's accuracy is improving this spring.
- Former Arizona offensive tackle Eben Britton is projected to go in the first round of the NFL draft.
- Will Arizona State get shut out of the draft for the first time in 45 years? My guess is no.
- Checking in with former California quarterback Nate Longshore, who probably won't get drafted.
- This former Trojan has been the star of Oregon's spring practices. Injuries are forcing the Ducks to experiment at running back and elsewhere.
- Though he's sitting out Oregon State's spring practices, quarterback Lyle Moevao still thinks he'll start for the Beavers when his competition with Sean Canfield renews in the fall. Considering the Beavers' options on the offensive line.
- An educated guess at Stanford's post-spring depth chart.
- Has UCLA found its next Bruce Davis at defensive end? And has D-tackle Brian Price found his voice to lead?
- Playing quarterback at USC is more than just playing quarterback for a BCS program. Malcolm Smith steps up at linebacker.
- Washington loses a couple of players, including 2008 leading rusher Terrance Dailey.
- Does the spread offense hurt a quarterback's NFL prospects? My answer? Not if you're good enough to play quarterback in the NFL.
- The Rose Bowl apparently will give Joe Paterno a stern talking to for Paterno's pointless and cliched grumpy coach routine before and after the bowl game.
- Fresh blood leading the Pac-10 and Big East might help change college football's postseason.
