To be clear, I do not anticipate Locke to earn a draft selection as high as the former Cal standout Anger was selected. Locke, however, does possess the leg strength and versatility to potentially earn a draftable grade.
Because of his leg strength, Locke was sent out to attempt some long-distance field goals for the Bruins in 2011 and flashed enough success to potentially earn more consideration in this role down the road, nailing kicks from 49 and 51 yards against the Texas Longhorns. Considering
his strong, accurate leg and the consistency he's shown over his career (44.58 career punting average ranks second in UCLA history) Locke could wind up as the top-rated punter in the 2013 draft, though as NFLDraftScout.com's rankings show, he'll have plenty of competition.
