DB P.J. Locke NFL Draft Profile - Texas

There is a lot to like about a guy who can play anywhere, but does it transfer to the NFL?

P.J. Locke
DB
Texas
Class Year: Senior
Height - 5'11" Weight - 210 lbs
Twitter: @PjLocke4

Strengths:

Locke is a versatile back who can play single high, slot cover, safety or corner. He has great range and has quality run support. He forced more fumbles and pass deflections than any other player in a Longhorns jersey. One of the hardest hitters in the game today. His tape is great.

Uses his hands well in the contest and is quick on his feet. He failed to receive a combine invite and will look to make up for that at his pro day in late March.

He has a hardworking attitude to the game and this will transfer well into the NFL if he gets a spot on a roster.

Weaknesses:

Jack-of-all-trades and a master of none. He hasn’t made any position his own and could struggle to find a meaningful role in the NFL. Really needs to put on a show at his pro day to impress NFL franchises.

Pro Comparison:

Quandre Diggs

Overall Review:

It may be tough for him to play in the NFL. He doesn’t have a solid position to call his own. Texas played him where he was needed most. He has a great attitude to his game and could be a fit in the right system.
