Broncos head coach comments on Drew Lock's first day of rookie minicamp
Drew Lock was certainly excited to get back on the gridiron.
After a grueling NFL Draft process, Lock was looking forward to Friday’s rookie minicamp for the Broncos.
“It felt really good because you go through this whole process waiting for the moment to finally be able to step on the field with a bunch of guys and get the football in your hands and start running some plays,” Lock said, via DenverPost.com. “If I (used) one word — it would be ‘great.’ It felt great to be out there.”
The Broncos drafted Lock in the second round (No. 42 overall) of the 2019 NFL Draft.
Lock’s new head coach Vic Fangio was also asked about his new QB’s first day of camp. Let’s just say that Fangio isn’t going to overreact after Day 1.
“Nothing great one way or the other,” Fangio said. “He’s learning out here. I try not to make any big-value judgments here early.”
Unlike Fangio, however, fellow second-round pick Dalton Risner wasn’t afraid to say he was impressed.
“He did great,” Risner said. “You would never have thought it was Day 1 for him. Of course, he has things to work on like everyone does out there. But that’s something Drew brings to the table — he’s not going to be a quarterback who’s hesitant or has trouble doing something like that in the huddle.”
