Chris Palmer Spends His Days Studying Film of Jake Locker

Jim Wyatt has an interesting article in today's Tennessean talking about some time he spent with Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Chris Palmer while Palmer watched film of Locker. As Wyatt mentions in the article, Palmer hasn't had a chance to actually work with Locker yet because of the lockout, so he has to spend his time studying Locker's film from the University of Washington. As you would expect, and as Wyatt points out, there are things to like about Locker's film from college and things that need work.

Some of the positives are highlighted in this paragraph:

One play told Palmer about Locker’s arm strength, another about his ability to throw on the run. Later his quick release was on display, along with his ability to run the bootleg to his left and his right. Palmer smiled when Locker showed his toughness.

Some of the negatives here:

On some plays, Locker’s footwork is sloppy as he gets anxious in the pocket. Palmer shows a play against BYU. Locker fails to show enough patience to let a screen develop. He rolls too wide, causing the play to break down.

I am just ready for this lockout to be over so Palmer can talk to Locker about these things instead of Wyatt.
