Drew Lock, QB
Offseason homework: Master the offense
There are certainly some technical things Lock can work on this offseason from a mechanics standpoint, but we saw big strides already with his footwork and not constantly throwing off his back foot. What’s next for him?
From my perspective, the next step for Drew Lock is a mastery of the Broncos’ offense with Rich Scangarello calling the shots.
The quicker Lock and Scangarello can get to a point where they are collaborating as QB and offensive coordinator versus installing and building, the better.
That’s not to say Scangarello shouldn’t constantly be evolving his offense and thinking of new ways to attack NFL defenses, but the quicker he and Lock get on the same page as far as what they’re trying to do and how they’re trying to run the offense, the better.
When Lock has a full grasp on the offense and can basically call it himself based on what he’s seeing pre-snap, the game is going to slow down for him and his physical traits will stand out even more.
