Lock has long been rumored to be the apple of John Elway’s eye and mocked to the Broncos consistently throughout the draft process. So it is not surprising to see Lock make a pre-draft visit/workout along with Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins. One or both could be there at 10th overall and the Broncos are still searching for their “quarterback of the future” so it makes sense that they are doing their due diligence on both.
Lock played four seasons at Missouri and was a four-year starter for them during his college career there and he improved each and every season while there. During his four-year career at Missouri, Lock totaled 12,193 yards passing, 99 touchdowns and 39 interceptions. He completed 56.9% of his passes and also rushed for 437 career yards and total 9 career rushing touchdowns. This past season for Missouri, Lock totaled 3,498 yards passing, 28 touchdowns, 8 interceptions and completed 62.9% of his passes. A pretty solid senior season for the potential first-round pick.
Whether or not the Broncos go quarterback at 10th overall remains to be seen but Lock certainly is in play if he’s available for them. This pre-draft visit/workout could help sway them one way or another as well so we shall wait and see there.
