Instant Fantasy Analysis - QB Drew Lock, Broncos

Recommended Posts

Drew Lock Write-Up

There was some speculation Denver might spend a first-round pick on Lock - especially after they traded back to No. 20 - so the Broncos have to be happy to land the player they will groom to be Joe Flacco's heir apparent. It's not a bad landing spot for that reason because even though he is a three-plus year starter at Missouri, he's still a bit of a developmental project. That, along with his inconsistency, are the main reasons Lock ends up being the fourth quarterback off the board after entering the season as the favorite to be the first. It is also interesting because although his comps are Matthew Stafford and Jay Cutler, he is perhaps the strongest-armed quarterback in this draft, which makes him a good choice to back up Flacco. Lock's aforementioned inconsistency happens in part because he knows he has a strong arm and trusts it too much, so hopefully a two-year apprenticeship serves him. He has no redraft value barring an injury to Flacco and doesn't figure to be anything than a back-end selection in rookie drafts.
