Knowshon Moreno says Drew Lock still has time to get better

Former Denver Broncos running back and first round draft pick, Knowshon Moreno, caught up with Ryan Edwards and Benjamin Allbright on Broncos Country Tonight on Wednesday.

After talking about his experience leading up to the first round, they asked him about the Broncos current situation. Moreno made a couple of really good points. The first was how he felt the quarterback should be getting the skill players out there for private workouts to build chemistry and timing. He mentioned how Peyton Manning would just tell him when and where he needed to be for those “unofficial” workouts, because, well, he was PFM.

They then asked him if not having time in the playbook last year and having a new offensive coordinator and new scheme that it would have hampered the quarterback and offensive system in 2020. Moreno flat out said no, because there was plenty of things the players could have done to get on the same page.

While that would seem to suggest that Drew Lock had little excuse to perform well in the offense last year, Moreno did go on to say that Lock is still young and has potential. Most importantly, Lock still has time to get better in his craft as a quarterback.

It was a great interview overall for Moreno.
