Locker shows plenty of arm at Washington pro day


Quarterback Jake Locker showed good velocity on his passes for the representatives of 20 NFL teams who traveled to the University of Washington’s pro day Wednesday.

The contingent that watched Locker and 10 others work out indoors on FieldTurf included new Titans offensive coordinator Chris Palmer, Packers director of college scouting John Dorsey and the entire Seahawks coaching staff.

Locker, who measured 6-foot-2 5/8 and weighed 227 pounds, was put through a scripted workout by Huskies offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Doug Nussmeier that featured a variety of passes to a wide receiver and a running back. Locker, who completed 39 of 41 passes, stood on the rest of his combine numbers.

Other notables:

Linebacker Mason Foster (6-1 1/2) twice clocked 4.70 seconds in the 40-yard dash, had a 30 1/2-inch vertical jump and ran the short shuttle in 4.42 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.16 seconds. He stood on the rest of his combine numbers. Seahawks linebackers coach Ken Norton Jr. put Foster through positional drills.

Defensive back Nate Williams (6-0 1/8, 211) ran 40s in 4.70 and 4.73, had a 30 1/2-inch vertical jump and bench-pressed 225 pounds 18 times. He stood on the rest of his combine numbers.
