It took longer than some of us anticipated, but the smoke became fire as the Denver Broncos selected quarterback Drew Lock.
We do not know the exact number of meetings the Denver Broncos had with Drew Lock, but including game sightings, the interest has clearly been strong.
Lock has a gift. This kid can really throw the football. There are flaws in his game and that may explain why Lock was taken in the second round. While there are footwork concerns and some accuracy inconsistencies, it is smart to have Lock sit under Joe Flacco for a year.
Lock has drawn comparisons to Jay Cutler, but we can all put the personality similarities to bed. They are vastly different.
Lock understands his role in entering the NFL. More specifically, sitting under Joe Flacco this season. Lock will sit under Flacco to learn offensive coordinator’s Rich Scangarello system, a blend of the new and old Mike Shanahan offense. It is one that will suit Lock long term.
This particular move of back-to-back picks of Drew Lock and Dalton Risner signals a sense of win now and from now on. New Denver Broncos head coach Vic Fangio saw firsthand the impact of a new wave at quarterback in Chicago. Not to mention, he understands it’s a new era in the NFL. Elway has even said it himself.
In my opinion, this is going down about as well as you would expect or want it to go if you are building for the here and now. So what are the experts saying about the Drew Lock pick? Let’s take a look.
The Denver Broncos have Noah Fant, Dalton Risner, and Drew Lock on board through the first two rounds. The draft is going extremely well, to say the least.
