NFL Expert Ranks Drew Lock as the Worst Starting Quarterback in the League

Most Broncos fans understand that we have "work in progress" with Drew Lock, but one expert thinks it's much worse...

The people at put together their ultimate rankings of every starting NFL quarterback as the 2021 NFL season approaches. It’s based off prestige, past performances, stats and the current roster for each team. The Broncos' Drew Lock is last. Here's why:

The reason the Broncos acquired veteran quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to compete with Lock for the starting job is because Lock had the 32nd-ranked passing grade (63.4) out of 36 qualifying quarterbacks. He must find a way to clean up his 23 turnover-worthy plays and make better decisions. Lock shows promise at times — he had the eighth-best passing grade (92.3) when throwing between 15-20 yards and executing play-action pass. The leash won’t be long. If given the opportunity, Lock has to play consistently and smart for Fangio to stick with his young quarterback.
