Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock has left offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur 'very impressed' this offseason with his ability to 'keep up with the (offensive) installations.'
'I think he's got a really good feel for the game. He's developing a good feel for what we want to do. If the rumor is true that he's throwing to our players, I think he's learning something there. We'll just try to put it all together here come July,' Shurmur said.

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock said recently he's motivated by the faith his high-profile general manager, John Elway, has bestowed in him. 'I know there's been a lot of talk about the quarterbacks in Denver,' Lock said. 'You know, Peyton (Manning) was the man there, obviously. We've had some good ones, and up-and-down (QBs) in there, and I didn't want to be that for John. I wanted to be a steady guy for him. I wanted to show everybody that they drafted the right quarterback.'
Huddle Up: Lock certainly showed that over a five-start stint in his rookie 2019 campaign. He went 4-1 after replacing veteran Joe Flacco under center. He completed 64.1 percent of his pass attempts for 1,020 yards and seven touchdowns against three interceptions. The Broncos bolstered their receiving corps in the 2020 NFL Draft and Lock could now flirt with low-end QB1 status in his sophomore year. He should be drafted as a top-end QB2.

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock addressed what he has learned about offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur's system after studying it since the pandemic shutdown began. 'There's definitely more possibilities for us to press the ball downfield, which I definitely think plays into my strengths and the receivers we have on this team,' said Lock Tuesday, May 5. 'We have guys who can fly down the field. It gives me the option of changing a curl route to a go route if we get man (coverage). I think we will press the ball downfield more than we did last year.'
Huddle Up: Denver's offense in 2019 had only three touchdown passes of 20 or more yards, whereas the Shurmur-coached New York Giants generated 10 such scoring plays. Given all of the weapons, as well as the aerial speed in the new-look offense, Lock's fantasy football needle is pointing due north. He's among the top backup targets in standard drafts, and gamers willing to roll the dice can give him the low-end QB1 treatment, as long as a reliable quarterback is paired with the second-year passer.

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock is throwing five days a week at a spot near his parents' home in Kansas City, during the coronavirus shutdown and has been studying the team's new offensive playbook while watching recent New York Giants film with new offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur coming aboard.
Huddle Up: Lock's real-life performance (7 TDs, 3 INTs; 4-1 record) was better than his fantasy one as he averaged only 17.2 fantasy points per contest (32nd among QBs) over his five starts to end the 2019 season. He's a QB2 consideration, though, entering his second season with a new three-WR-based offense which should lead to more throwing.

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock will be the team's starting quarterback to begin the 2020 season, according to general manager John Elway Tuesday, Feb. 25.
Huddle Up: Lock showed potential while going 4-1 over five starts in a lost season for the Broncos. He completed 64.1 percent of his passes with seven touchdowns against three interceptions. He'll likely enter the 2020 season as a high-end QB2.

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock was on the New York Giants' radar during the 2019 draft, and now Broncos offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, the former Giants head coach, says he's eager to pair with Lock. 'I'm very excited about being able to work with Drew Lock,' Shurmur said Thursday, Feb. 6.
Huddle Up: Lock averaged 17.2 points per game during his five starts as a rookie last season, and should be on the low-end QB2 radar heading into 2020.

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock said Friday, Jan. 31, he is excited about the potential of the team's offense with the hiring of offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur and quarterbacks coach Mike Shula., both formerly with the New York Giants. 'I tried to watch as many New York games [as possible], with Daniel (Jones) being a friend of mine,' Lock said. 'It's pretty explosive. They throw the ball down the field. Daniel did himself some running. I'm excited to be able to scoot around a little bit. We'll see how they morph it to fit our personnel and our style and what they think might be best for our team, but I'm confident that they're going to put together a good plan and be ready to go for us.'
Huddle Up: Lock went 4-1 as a starter after taking over late in the season in 2019, but didn't exactly set the fantasy world on fire, averaging only 17.2 fantasy points per outing. He'll be a low-end QB2 consideration with upside in drafts this summer.

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock had his wisdom teeth surgically removed this week, postponing an offseason advice-seeking visit with retired QB Peyton Manning, the latter said Friday, Jan. 24, in a radio interview.
Huddle Up: Lock started the final five games of his rookie season, and showed well, winning four of them while throwing for 1,020 yards, seven TD passes and three interceptions. He should enter the 2020 season as the Broncos' starter and a lower-end QB2 prospect in fantasy.
