Jake LockerBy C. Trent Rosecrans

One of the biggest early surprises in the first round of Thursday night's NFL draft was Tennessee taking Washington quarterback Jake Locker with the eight overall pick.

That means the Angels lost their $250,000 gamble -- but hey, that's not even a paycheck for Vernon Wells.

Anaheim picked Locker in the 10th round of the 2009 MLB draft and signed him for a quarter-of-a-million dollars, gambling the talented athlete would decide to play baseball -- or there would be no NFL for him to play in.

Locker participated in the Angels' minor-league spring training in 2010, but hasn't played baseball since. The Angels still have his rights until August of 2015.

Locker was a pitcher and outfielder in high school and played in a college baseball summer league in 2008 as an outfielder. The Angels also took him out of high school, in the 40th round.
