Denver Broncos select Mizzou star Drew Lock on Day 2 of NFL Draft
Coming into the 2019 NFL Draft, no one knew exactly where Mizzou QB Drew Lock would be taken.
Some had him going as early as No. 4 to the Oakland Raiders and some had him falling all the way to the New England Patriots at No. 32. Not many had him falling out of the first round completely, though.
In reality, Lock ended up going to the Denver Broncos with the No. 42 overall pick during Friday’s proceedings in Nashville.
The Missouri star threw for 12,193 yards in his outstanding college career, good for second in SEC history (behind Aaron Murray). He also threw 99 touchdown passes over his four years in Columbia, good for third in the SEC record books (behind Murray and Danny Wuerffel).
Lock brings his strong arm to the NFL ranks now, where he’ll be making throws like this before we know it:

* Ability to climb pocket while keeping a balanced base
* Eyes downfield despite the rush around him
* Accurate ball on a line 40yds in air
* Torque in lower half makes the throw look effortless@RockMNation pic.twitter.com/kPnL95RIQ4

He’ll have quite the chip on his shoulder after watching the entire first round pass him by, too, so we’ll see what he makes of himself now in the pro ranks.
