1. QB Drew Lock
This past year, the Denver Broncos employed two different starting quarterbacks in veteran Teddy Bridgewater and three-year pro Drew Lock. The former was acquired last offseason in a trade from the Carolina Panthers. The latter was a second-round pick by Denver in 2019.
Bridgewater made 14 starts, hit on 66.9 percent of his throws for 3,052 yards and more than twice as many touchdown passes (18) as interceptions (7). He also ran for two scores and lost his only fumble of the season despite being sacked 31 times.
Lock played in a total of six games (3 starts), hit on just over 60 percent of his throws. He also rushed for two touchdown but finished with more turnovers (3) than TD passes (2). That was also the case in 2020, when he threw for 16 scores but had more than half (18) of the team’s NFL-high 32 turnovers.
All told, Lock’s three-year resume includes a total of 24 games with 21 starts. He’s thrown for 25 scores but has committed the same amount of turnovers. That’s a total of 20 interceptions while losing five of his 13 fumbles. All this after a promising start as a rookie in ’19. Could his time in Denver be coming to an end?
