Draft Watch: Derrick Locke Breaks His Arm

Kentucky running back Derrick Locke (5’9, 190) broke his arm in a moped accident on Thursday but he will not need surgery “at this time,” according to The Courier-Journal. He will be in a splint for four weeks.

The Wildcats leading rusher last year with 907 yards. Locke is expected to be fully recovered in time for the start of the season and resume his role as the featured back.

Locke projects as a change-of-pace back at the next level and currently holds a mid-late round grade for the 2011 NFL Draft. He also probably assure himself that a provision will be written in his contract that states, ‘No moped riding.’
