However, Lock is embracing the opportunity in Denver, and there may not have been a better fit. Don't miss out on any news and analysis!

QB Drew Lock out of Missouri. His limitations under duress make him a developmental prospect, he will need notable improvement in his composure under pressure and his throwing mechanics in tight spaces if he's ever to reach his ceiling as a player.
The Broncos held the No. 15 overall) and WR Courtland Sutton (114 overall). Here are a few scenarios the Broncos could consider. I am a Lock fan, but I would also not have been disappointed to see them take another proven QB like Murray or Ryan there. There will be doubters, as shown in the draft when Lock fell all the way to 42nd overall, after being seen as a sure-fire first rounder merely a season ago. The NFL trade deadline is rapidly approaching. Word is that small hands (9 inches) behind absence of QB Drew Lock from first round of the draft. Enter 6’4”, 225-lb. Broncos stats you want to see. Lock has been mocked by several different media outlets to go in the first 15 picks of Friday's second round. In those four picks made for each team, NFL Nation had to draft a quarterback, a non-quarterback offensive player, and a defensive player. The stats are not pretty, but then the state of the Denver Broncos right now is not.
This should be fun. WOW!!! Andy Reid did not hold back when he was asked about Drew Lock this week with the Chiefs and Broncos set to square off at Mile High. Legwold has usually erred on the side of caution when it comes to his Broncos takes so it is a bit surprising to see him make such a bold selection and viewing Lock as the team's future at the quarterback position.

USA Today's Michael Middlehurst-Schwartz rendered Lock's drop due to inaccuracy despite a prolific career at Missouri. Since trading up to snag Dalton Risner and Drew Lock back-to-back, the Broncos’ Day 2 haul has built momentum as one of the best in 2019. Most qb's would struggle to play in denver tbh.
Lock is ready to prove them wrong. What did we learn from Denver's 43-16 loss to Kansas City? The fact that Denver nabbed Lock in the second round of the 2019 draft, instead of the first, alleviates some of the pressure on Elway and Fangio to play Lock right away. Some wonder if Elway will be around as the GM to see his final plan through, but a pattern is becoming clear in the way the Broncos draft their players. But people don't seem to realize you need to have a certain type of build and very good arm strength to play 8 games a year, plus the post season, a mile above sea level and the harsh weather and wind. Legwold's choice on defense was another area where he took some major risk in taking Isaiah Simmons (actually drafted by the Arizona Cardinals this past spring) to be the Swiss army knife. ESPN used the 2020 draft order with a snake style draft, going four full rounds with the theoretical idea being that the rest of each team's roster would be filled with middle-of-the-pack type players. Legwold redrafted two current Broncos in QB Drew Lock (No. Injuries and lack of production seemingly forced the Ravens into making the decision to go with Jackson, and now Flacco’s fate in Denver doesn’t appear to be much different. It was building a team from scratch based only on available players today. SF: D.K.
Overall, Legwold decided to live by the saying 'go big or go home.'. Oakland (35) looks like a landing spot for Drew Lock.
Teams are what their record is at this point. Lock is anxious to embrace his new orange and blue threads, after growing up in Missouri and learning to hate those colors as a Chiefs’ fan. I understand not wanting lock so early. What happens next for the Broncos in free agency and the draft? The choices of the veteran ESPN journalist would either lead to the Broncos being a top team in the league or a bottom feeder. The Broncos proved to be farther away than we thought. Can the Broncos overcome their underdog odds and shock the world at Gillette Stadium?
15 pick, it's hard to blame Legwold for going the direction he did. Drew Lock on people saying he reminds them of Jay Cutler: The Missouri product seems pumped and excited to get to work. Can the Broncos snap their nine-game losing streak to the Chiefs? Fresh off a senior season that came nowhere close to the stat production of his junior year, Lock had taken a hit to his draft stock. But the 6-4, 228-pound quarterback struggled at times both with accuracy and turnovers, completing just 56.9 percent of his collegiate throws, though that mark rose to 62.9 percent in his senior season In the lead-up to the draft, Lock said he was more concerned with team fit than being drafted highly.". The Broncos’ nose tackle suffered a Lisfranc fracture against the Chiefs. It's simple team building logic to understand that you need to have a viable QB, or at least one with high upside and potential, if you are going to build a roster capable of competing for a championship.
The choice that confuses me is Arizona taking Drew Brees at the number 9 spot. Why is that? Some NFL national reporters had theories. He knows he is the backup, yet his confidence and appearance have drawn comparisons to former Broncos’ QB Jay Cutler. The Broncos shot themselves in the foot in a 10th-straight loss to the Chiefs. Also, Houston taking DeAndre Hopkins at 26 is is like watching your friend that can't get over their ex.
One thing that sticks out about these choices for the Broncos is how many of them are on rookie contracts for the next few years. The Denver Broncos saw an opportunity and took it, trading with Cincinnati to move into the 42nd slot to grab the top QB on John Elway’s draft board. Legwold took notes from GM John Elway when picking for the Broncos as his two offensive picks beyond Lock were Sutton in the fourth to attack the outside and current Kansas City Chiefs' TE Travis Kelce to attack the inside.

Howard Balzer of BalzerFootball.com, a long-time national reporter based in St. Louis, reported that Lock's 9-inch hand size is reason enough for the slide in the eyes of some in the league. Taking a look at the QBs taken in the first round after Lock, there's only one guy I might consider at QB before Lock and that's Matthew Stafford. The goal was to build a team that could win a Super Bowl in the next five years. Fans hope that Legwold's bullish outlook on Lock is rewarded with a big season and a bright future. I get that he is a hall of fame QB. They targeted Wilkins early on. The Denver Broncos offense is only going to be as good as it quarterback and Drew Lock needs a lot of improvement before this team can win games consistently.
