The Denver Broncos may have found the future quarterback in Drew Lock, but John Elway still has a lot of work to do with the position.
Through two games, the results have been good, if not great from rookie signal-caller Drew Lock, the Denver Broncos second-round draft pick in the 2019 draft. After looking a bit shaky in initial preseason contests, and subsequently ending up on IR, the gunslinger out of the Kansas City area has put on a show in his first two career starts, beating the division-rival Los Angeles Chargers before taking down the playoff-bound Houston Texans on the road.
His performance against Houston was particularly inspiring as he carved up the Houston Texans defense while putting on the best individual quarterback performance we’ve seen from a Denver Broncos quarterback this season. As a result, the Denver Broncos offense had their best performance of the season topping 24 points for the first time since last year’s destruction of the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday Night Football in October.
Although it’s just two games, there is a lot to love about Lock. It’s clear that he has the arm talent to compete in the National Football League, and he’s got the right amount of confidence and humility for a starting quarterback. He doesn’t look like he is half asleep and bored to be there like Joe Flacco, and he doesn’t look like he’s never read a defense before in his life like Paxton Lynch, and he can fit throws into windows that we could have never dreamed Trevor Siemian would even try.
Needless to say, the Denver Broncos fanbase is buzzing with the hope that John Elway may have finally landed a franchise quarterback after years of failed attempts. Obviously, we still have a long way to go and things could take a number of different turns, but so far, it appears like we are on the right track, which brings up the point of this article.
John Elway shouldn’t be done fixing the quarterback position. That’s right, even with a guy like Drew Lock under center, Elway and the Denver Broncos should be busy working on the quarterback position this offseason.
And with that, here are the three moves they should make at the quarterback position this offseason.
