2021 NFL Starting QBs, Ranked

31. Drew Lock — Denver Broncos

2020 Stats: 13 games, completed 254-of-443 passes, 2933 yards, 16 TD, 15 INT, 3 rushing TD

When Denver selected Lock No. 42 overall in the 2019 NFL Draft, experts were split on the quarterback’s outlook. Some thought Denver made a smart decision, while others saw Lock as nothing more than a backup. Then, in five starts last season, Lock led the Broncos to four victories and played rather well.

Year 2 did not go well. Lock threw 15 interceptions and only 16 TDs, often looking overwhelmed on the field. With Teddy Bridgewater now on the roster and rumors of a possible trade for Aaron Rodgers lurking, there is no guarantee Lock is Denver’s top option come Week 1.
