Draft Scout Tyler Lockett News
06/05/14 - Kansas State's top NFL Draft-Eligible prospects to watch in 2014: 1. WR Tyler Lockett, Senior...Arguably the top wideout in the conference, Lockett doesn't look like much, but he runs like the wind with sudden footwork in his breaks to create separation before, during and after the catch. He is a smaller target with a limited overall catching radius and smaller hands that will lead to double catches and him fighting the ball at times. However, Lockett is very dangerous in space, using his quick, decisive feet to sell routes and speed to stretch the field and take the top off a defense.
He runs a lot of vertical and deep routes on tape, including a deadly stop-and-go move – just ask former TCU corner Jason Verrett, a first round pick last month. Lockett finished top-three in just about every Big 12 receiving statistic last season with 81 catches for 1,262 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns and will likely compete with Baylor's Antwan Goodley for the distinction of the conferences' top wideout in 2014. He doesn't have ideal size for the NFL level, but will compete to be a top-five senior wide receiver in the 2015 class. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
12/30/13 - Kansas State coach Bill Snyder saw what was coming and tried to avoid it, racing 20 yards down the sideline and out onto the field. Spry as he might be, the 74-year-old coach was no match for players young enough to be his grandchildren, turning just in time to take the full icy brunt of defensive end Ryan Mueller dumping a water bucket over his head. "I did (see it), but I'm too old to get out of the way," Snyder said. He's certainly not too old to win bowl games. The architect of one of college football's biggest turnarounds during his first stint at Kansas State, Snyder and his Wildcats won their first bowl game in 11 years by rolling over Michigan 31-14 in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl on Saturday night.
Jake Waters threw for 271 yards and connected with record-breaking receiver Tyler Lockett on three scores, helping Kansas State (8-5) end a five-game bowl losing streak. "Nobody on the team won a bowl game," Lockett said. "It has been 11 years, (like) 4,018 games. We wanted to send the seniors out with a great win in a Kansas State uniform." The Wildcats surged at the end of the season and were unstoppable early against Michigan (7-6), scoring on their first three possessions behind Lockett and Waters. Lockett set a school record with 10 catches for 116 yards and tied the Kansas State bowl record with his three TDs. Waters was efficient in leading Kansas State's offense, completing 21 of 27 passes and running for 42 yards. The Wildcats' defense dominated most of the night, holding Michigan to 261 total yards -- 82 of that on a final scoring drive in the fourth quarter with the game out of reach. - AP Sports
12/30/13 - Junior wide receiver Tyler Lockett tied a Kansas State record with three touchdowns and the Wildcats broke a five-game bowl losing streak with a 31-14 victory over Michigan in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl on Saturday night. Lockett, who set a school bowl record with 10 receptions, scored on 6-, 29- and 8-yard passes from quarterback Jake Waters in the first half of Kansas State's first bowl victory since a 34-27 win over Arizona State in the 2002 Holiday Bowl. Waters completed 21-of-27 passes for 271 yards and three touchdowns, setting a school bowl record for completion percentage at .778 in the first meeting between the schools, which have been playing football since 1896.
Michigan freshman Shane Morris completed 24-of-38 passes for 196 yards and an interception in his first career start, becoming the first quarterback in school history to make his first start in a bowl game. Morris replaced quarterback Devin Gardner, who suffered a leg injury in the final regular-season game against Ohio State and watched the game from the sideline on crutches. Gardner accounted for 3,443 yards of total offense and 32 touchdowns this season. - The Sports Xchange
