Just listening to his press conferences he makes it almost obvious he wants Locker at #8. Here's a quote: When asked about what type of QB would fit Palmer's system: Could this sound anymore like Locker? He also mentioned intangibles, and leadership, which I think he was hinting towards Locker having both. Then he brought up Chris Palmer's ability to work with Eli Manning and improve his accuracy when talking about Locker.. If nothing else, I think this means we aren't touching Mallett..
