    Here's the scouting report per Walter Football.

    Strengths: Good arm strength
    Strong, athletic build with good height
    Outstanding speed and agility for a quarterback
    Fluid athlete
    Great footwork; smooth mechanics
    Good accuracy
    Very quick delivery
    Gets legs, hips into throw
    Evades rushers to get throws off
    Huge running threat
    Terrific pocket awareness; nice instincts
    Can throw on the run
    Love how he sells play action
    Competitive; good leader
    Keeps head up out of pocket; passer first - runner second
    Displays good timing
    Productive; won despite poor supporting cast
    One year in West Coast offense
    Shown improvement and ability to learn NFL scheme
    A lot of upside
    Good work ethic
    Natural feel for the position
    Franchise quarterback



    Weaknesses:
    Will miss open receivers; limited field vision
    Lacks a lot of polish
    Inconsistent spiral on ball
    Tendency to lock onto primary receiver
    Sometimes forces throws
    Hesitates/gets anxious in pocket
    Occasionally indecisive with ball
    Needs more experience learning before handed starting job in NFL


    Mallet is a NO! Stanzi would be an option but he looks more like a Pennington type player. Locker has NO supporting cast at all! The report says that he needs more experience before becoming a starter. Look at Sanchez, everyone said his experience was going to kill him and ya he had his ups and downs his rookie year but look at them now. He will lead that team for years!!! Henne simply wont! Locker needs to be in a Fin uniform next year!

    Locker would be a realistic option. It looks like he's gonna fall to the mid-late first round based on the season he's having. I'm a huge Locker fan. He's had no help his entire career, but has won some big games anyway.

    The biggest thing that I find out of him is his upside. This kid is not done becoming the elite QB he can be yet. IMO we can not pass on this guy!

    I would be thrilled to get him in the first, package Henne and a 4th for a mid second and get Daniel Thomas. Grab a Center or Guard in round 3. The defense can wait.
