Drew Lock Stats

Lock has all the makings of an NFL QB. He has the size, the pocket presence, and the multi-year college resume at Missouri. But just like fellow QBs Dwayne Haskins and Kyler Murray, he has his fair share of concerns.  

Lock had an excellent junior season, throwing for 3,964 yards, 44 touchdowns, and a solid 9.5 yards per attempt. He was primed to enter the 2018 NFL Draft, but with four projected first-round QBs ahead of him, he elected to return for his senior season. That was a mistake, as Missouri OC Josh Heupel left and Lock's numbers dipped in a new offense. He threw for 3,498 yards this year with 28 TDs and 8 INTs. This led to the question of whether Lock's stats were propped up by Heupel's high-volume, quick-passing attack or not.

Lock also offers the bare-minimum with his legs. He averaged a lowly 2.2 yards per rush over his college career. He does offer "QB Sneak" ability (Six rushing TDs his senior season), but that's where it ends.

Drew Lock Draft Predictions

New York Giants, Jacksonville Jaguars, Denver Broncos

The NFL has established a premium on QBs that fit the prototype. The past few years we have seen teams trade copious amounts of assets to move up just a few spots to select their guy at QB. The fact that this is an extremely thin quarterback class also boosts his draft stock. Lock will likely wow one of the aforementioned teams during the pre-Draft process and will have his name called early, for better or worse.
