It’s an interesting time to be a NFL Draft pick. With a lockout looming, most NFL players are starting to get nervous. In meeting with some of the top college prospects this week however, most of them seemed focused on training and preparing for the NFL Scouting Combine next week. They are proceeding with business as usual until a lockout comes, but no doubt they are forced to think about something other rookie classes did not have to.
We caught up with quite a few players this week including Washington Huskies star quarterback Jake Locker to get some images of the guys and have them add their signatures to new Upper Deck Football cards. The first Football release of the year is just a couple months away when 2011 Upper Deck Football hits shelves on April 12. Check out some of the images from the photo shoot and signing session.
