Undrafted Free Agents — What about Derrick Locke?

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

Derrick Locke had 27 career starts at Kentucky and was named to the 2009 2nd Team All-SEC.  He missed 4 games in 2010 due to shoulder/elbow injuries.  However, in 2010, he did carry the ball 166 times for an average of 5.28 YPA.  Locke shined in the receiving game with 34 receptions out of the backfield for an average of 9.35 YPA.  Over his college career, Locke rushed the ball a total of 518 times for an average of 5.05 YPA.

The Dolphins currently have Lex Hilliard and Kory Sheets as RBs on the roster.  They drafted Daniel Thomas out of Kansas State in the second round of this year’s draft.  Ronnie Brown, Ricky Williams, and Partick Cobbs are all unrestricted free agents and may not return.  And, the rumors are flying that the Dolphins will pick up a veteran free agent like DeAngelo Williams (Carolina Panthers). 

Do you think the Dolphins should sign Derrick Locke to a short term contract and bring him into camp to compete for the third down back on the roster?  What other UFA RBs are on your list that the Dolphins should be look at?

      proof?Because unless he was desperate i find it hard to believe anyone’s agent would let them do it knowing they might have a career in the NFL still.

        Agreed, I’m in Canada and follow the CFL with every bit as much enthusiasm as I follow the NFL. Locke has not signed in the CFL.

    Brandon Saine and Mario Fannin are also undrafted free agents, along with TE oordt. Locke looks to be a good pickup.

    I don’t know if anybody seen the senior bowl but Derrick Locke tore it up in that game.I’m not saying he scored a lot of touchdowns but he is a good hard nose running back that makes one cut and gets vertical.He hits the holes quick and moves chains.We would be lucky to have him on our roster.

    Locke got drafted in the UFL by Omaha and Mario Fannin got drafted by Las Vegas. Locke sent a tweet (minus the expletives) that he’s not joining the UFL. I think the Phins will draft Fannin…they had private workouts with him.
