Drew Lock has a few things going for him vs. Teddy Bridgewater
Unless something goes down between the Denver Broncos and Green Bay Packers for league MVP Aaron Rodgers, the competition at the quarterback position will be between Drew Lock and Teddy Bridgewater. Not every Denver Broncos fan is exactly rejoicing over that, but until he’s not on the roster, Lock still has a chance to be “the guy” in Denver regardless of how slim you think that chance actually is.
Until an Aaron Rodgers trade happens, this is the situation the Denver Broncos find themselves in.
Will Lock take a jump in his third NFL season, second as a full starter? Will Teddy Bridgewater have to come in and right the ship?
Could Bridgewater even be a version of what Ryan Tannehill has been to the Tennessee Titans for the Denver Broncos?
There are plenty of scenarios on the table, and the starting job will be decided over the course of the next three months.
Come September, will Drew Lock be back under center as the QB1 for the Denver Broncos? How long will his “leash” be?
At this particular point in time, it seems like Lock has at least somewhat of an edge over Teddy Bridgewater. You could lay out pros and cons for both guys and make a compelling case that Bridgewater should have the edge right now, but let’s walk through some of the main reasons why Lock has more than a few things going for him in the competition with Teddy Bridgewater.
