Broncos second-round QB Drew Lock said that while it’s taken him some additional work, he’s “1,000 times better” right now from where he was upon joining the team.
“Comparing Day One to now, I would say 1,000 times better,” Lock said, via Ryan O’Halloran of the Denver Post. “It took some extra grind and some extra work. You think you know what it takes, but then you realize quickly you have to put some more into it. Once I figured that out, it’s gone more smoothly.”
Lock added that OC Rich Scangarello has given him the freedom to make mistakes while adjusting to the pro-style offense.
“[Offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello has] definitely been OK with me making a mistake, but definitely not making the mistake twice,” Lock said. “That’s been the one thing we’ve focused on. We knew I would have to be under center, call plays in the huddle, learn a pro-style offense — it’s all new to me. How’s he treated me is, ‘You can make a mistake, but let’s come back and fix it.’ That’s been the biggest thing for us.”
