There is no one in this draft with higher intangibles than Locker, and yet he also has really high tangibles. He's VERY athletic. He can move around quite well and make plays. He throws well on the run. His accuracy from the pocket is a question, but it is fixable. Part of his problem is footwork, which was worsened by his OL being pretty bad. But he has plenty of arm.
Keep in mind that while people like to point out that Locker played 2 years in a pro style and didn't seem to progress, he spent part of this year injured/beat up. Also, he spent the 2 years before that in a more of a running QB offense. So he's still learning.
The fact that he can throw so well on the run shows that he CAN be accurate. So something else is going on when he's in the pocket. It's not something that's beyond him. Palmer can fix that, and then we'll have a superb franchise QB finally.
At 40 do you target a D-lineman or how about Rudolph at TE if he's there?
I'd love Rudolph. Doughie and I picked him in the 2nd in the forum mock we did at DB. Need-wise, I think G/C needs to be addressed. Someone like Hudson or Wisniewski would be nice. DL, LB, and CB could also be addressed depending on value.
