Drew Lock update
Even those who will claim they aren’t that interested in the backup QB are secretly interested in how Drew Lock did in his first NFL training camp practice.
C’mon, you know you are.
Lock looked really good. He was out there firing the ball to all levels of the field, some he would hit more consistently than others.
There were a couple of quick but very long throws on screen plays or flat routes where Lock would airmail a pass or just put too much on it, but he put much of the skillset we all coveted for the Broncos in this year’s draft on display.
The deep ball was certainly there for Lock on a couple of occasions, one, in particular, he put an absolute dime on Brendan Langley for a touchdown. Langley made a great catch but Lock put the ball where only his receiver could go get it.
There was also a play-action play where Lock was rolling to his right, and he fired the ball Pat Mahomes style to his receiver on the move and led him perfectly for a big gain.
Again, the key for Lock will be consistency but he was moving well, shook some pressure and stood tall in the pocket, and made some confident throws.
There were misfires, but nothing I felt in the moment was a big deal. He looked nice out there.
