Former Kentucky running back Derrick Locke wasn’t selected during the NFL draft. The good news is at least someone thinks highly of him. Locke was picked up in the UFL draft that took place on twitter Monday. A friend informed him he was picked up, and let’s just say he was hardly flattered. Here’s a screenshot of how the conversation went courtesy of SB Nation Atlanta:
Locke missed four games last season at Kentucky because of a shoulder injury and many teams removed him from their boards because X-rays revealed he has a back injury. Despite that, he vows he will play on Sundays and that’s likley why he had so much disdain for the notion of playing in the UFL. If he doesn’t find interest from NFL teams, my guess is he’ll change his tone.
The UFL “Where ‘I’m not going to that s***’ happens”
