The Denver Broncos will host Missouri Tigers quarterback Drew Lock for an official pre-draft visit to their team facility.
The Denver Broncos are making sure they make an informed decision at the 10th overall pick, whether they use it on a quarterback or not.
According to Mike Klis, the Broncos will be hosting Missouri Tigers quarterback Drew Lock on a pre-draft visit to the team’s facility.
Lock is a very charismatic young player with a huge arm and some Jay Cutler to his game. He had some frustrating inconsistencies in his four years with the Tigers, but put some really good game tape out there against SEC opponents.
Lock was the major focus of Broncos Country during this year’s Senior Bowl, which happened just a couple of weeks before the team decided to trade a fourth-round pick for Joe Flacco.
Though the Broncos’ investment in Flacco was not substantial in terms of draft compensation, it’s believed the team is progressing forward with him as the starting quarterback and a first-round pick at the position would be a surprise.
In my opinion, there’s little to no chance of it happening.
As many times as the Broncos have seen and met with Lock (John Elway was in Missouri for his game against Arkansas, and they also met at the Senior Bowl), it’s interesting that they are bringing him to Denver for another chat.
This visit could be a bit more extensive. Lock and fellow top quarterback prospect Dwayne Haskins, along with whatever other quarterbacks the Broncos choose to bring in, are going to have to do their best to convince the Broncos and John Elway specifically that passing on them in this draft is a mistake.
Elway may already be looking ahead to 2020, but we’ll have to wait and see.
The Broncos know they need to bring in a quarterback to develop, but they might wait until the middle rounds to pick someone.
