Denver Broncos: Where did Drew Lock, Teddy Bridgewater rank in key categories in 2020?
Teddy Bridgewater: 69.1 (league rank- 6th)
Drew Lock: 57.3 (league rank- 43rd)
This is a category with a huge discrepancy and could be one of the reasons some fans are favoring Bridgewater in the competition already.
If the Broncos want to employ an offensive strategy that looks to take advantage of the short, quick passing game, Bridgewater could thrive. He did that with the Panthers last year, where only five quarterbacks completed a higher percentage of their throws.
When those players include Josh Allen, Watson, Rodgers, and Drew Brees, that’s saying something.
Bridgewater had a very underrated season throwing the ball in Carolina and he is one of those quarterbacks who will take what a defense gives him. Having the chance to get the ball to guys like Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, and K.J. Hamler, he could have his best year in the league.
For Lock, his low completion percentage is a concern.
There were only six quarterbacks with a lower percentage last season and all of them were backups, including Driskel. This is a number that Lock must bring way up, because if there is a difference between completed passes at this rate in training camp and preseason games, Bridgewater could win the job on that alone.
