Derrick Locke drafted in UFL's ninth round

Former Kentucky running back Derrick Locke finally got drafted, just not by an NFL team. Locke was picked in the ninth round of the United Football League's draft on Tuesday by the Omaha Nighthawks. Locke, a 5-foot-9, 190-pound speedster, wasn't selected in the NFL Draft last week after rushing for 887 yards and 10 touchdowns in his senior season despite missing four games because of a shoulder injury.
