Palmer Anxious to Work With First Round Pick Locker

Titans offensive coordinator Chris Palmer hasn’t been able to do any on-field work with first-round quarterback Jake Locker.

“I’m anxious,” Palmer said of getting to work with Locker. “We’re all anxious.”

Palmer allowed Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean to sit in on a Locker film session, and the first-year coordinator shed light on what prompted the Titans to use the eighth overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft on the former University of Washington star.

“He’ll need to work, and you have to fine tune, but he has all the tools,” Palmer said. “That’s why golfers have a swing coach and a putting coach and everything else.

“(Titans quarterbacks coach) Dowell Loggains and myself will work very hard to keep him in rhythm and balance and do everything we can to help him be successful. And we’ll always work on his accuracy. More than anything, we just want to work with him and get going.”
