Pos: 
Hard-working college safety with limited upside for the next level. Fires up the field, and gives effort against the run. Solid open-field tackler. Instinctive, properly diagnoses the action and keeps plays in front of him. Fluid in his backpedal and in reverse, smooth in transition and shows awareness in coverage. Works well with cornerbacks to bracket receivers over the middle of the field.
Neg: 
Struggles to take on blocks and gets easily sealed from the action. Average ball skills and had just three interceptions in college.
Analysis: 
Locke is a tough safety but comes with average size and speed numbers and must play downhill or between the numbers.
