If only he would've gotten the 49ers GM job...
Lol he says some off the wall stuff, maybe that's why they got turned off with the Niners job. But you gotta admit his track record is impressive:
1999 to 2007 Oakland Raiders: Hired by owner Al Davis to become Senior Personnel Executive working closely with the owner on all football matters. Liaison with head coach and owner; responsible for pro and college player evaluations; and handled veteran contracts.
1998 Philadelphia Eagles: Promoted to Director of Pro Personnel after serving as a consultant to team owner Jeffrey Lurie in 1997. Managed the professional personnel department and advised owner and chief financial officer on all player contracts and salary cap issues.
1996 St. Louis Rams: Prepared advisory reports for ownership during head coach search.
1987 to 1996 Cleveland Browns: Joined team as Pro Personnel Director in 1987. Promoted to Director of Player Personnel in 1992 where he worked under head coach Bill Belichick and was responsible for all college and pro personnel decisions; managed salary cap and player personnel issues; oversaw staff of 13 college and pro scouts; handled all player contracts and advised head coach on all football matters.
1984 to 1987 San Francisco 49ers: Hired as Area Scout where he was responsible for the west region from Texas to California. Reported to head coach Bill Walsh and assistant coaches in all matters of college scouting and supplied information for use during the NFL draft.

1977 to 1981 Hofstra University, Hempstead, N.Y.: Defensive lineman and long-snapper.
I'd value his opinion on a guy if he feels strongly enough, he's been in the business a long time. Plus, these guys will just have to eat a huge plate of crow if they are dead wrong, provided they are still in the journalism business.
But yea, if he was in SF it's likely you could rule out Locker for them and for some reason I think Harbaugh may be interested in him.
