The post-draft sex glow is all about us as we move into the doldrums of the NFL off-season, but there's still much to talk about with the Vikings 2013 NFL Draft picks. In Purple Jesus Diaries' NFL Draft-or-Bust Off, we review each pick in turn and provide some further amateur insight for you. Previously we looked at Sharrif Floyd, Xavier Rhodes, Cordarrelle Patterson, and Gerald Hodges, and today, we continue with the Vikings fifth round pick, Punter out of UCLA, Jeff Locke ...
JEFF LOCKE IS THAT SON OF A BITCH THAT MADE CHRIS KLUWE SIGN WITH THE RAIDERS!
OK, not really. That's Rick Spielman's fault. Jeff Locke is just a punter from UCLA, a basketball school. Of course, everyone's favorite punter Chris Kluwe also came from UCLA, so maybe that means he has good pedigree. Usually, this is the area where I also give you information about a player's measurables. You know, how tall a receiver is, how much weight a linebacker put up, how short Sharrif Floyd's arms are ... That sort of thing. But I'm not sure what measurements they use at the combine that give us any insight into punters. Are tall punters better? Does it matter how fast they are? What if they can't jump? I don't know either. Locke kicks footballs, so let's just assume he's decent at that.
I guess he punts left footed. So that's something.
