The Denver Broncos have the ultimate faith in Drew Lock as the quarterback of the future.

The team is busy looking for ways to build the offense around the young quarterback, but with only five starts under his belt, there are bound to be potential pitfalls ahead. One of those potential pitfalls in the upcoming season could be the games against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Games within the division are generally more challenging than games that aren't.

Don't be fooled. The Chargers, despite a 5-11 record last season, are a much better team than that. The defense already has Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram to get after the passer and now, the secondary could be among the best in the league.

The Chargers already had Casey Hayward and Derwin James in the secondary and there is hope that last year's second-round pick, Nasir Adderley, will be able to bounce back in 2020. Now, the team has added Chris Harris to the mix.

Harris signed with the division rival despite interest from other teams. Whether or not the Chargers offered him the best deal, there was almost undeniably some motivation from Harris to be able to compete against his old team.

Despite nine seasons with the Broncos, Harris did not have the most amicable split with the team. Now, he'll get to face the Broncos twice per season and go against guys like Drew Lock and Courtland Sutton, players he saw every day in practice.

Lock is going to be tested when he faces this team next season, particularly with the way the current wide receiving corps looks. That is all the more reason for the Broncos to go out and find a dynamic wide receiver in the upcoming draft, perhaps even two.
