2019 NFL Draft Profile: QB Drew Lock, Missouri

Lock has shown the ability to make plays outside the pocket on a consistent basis. Among the top QB prospects, Lock’s 73.7 overall grade outside the pocket ranks second and he has a 73.6 percent adjusted completion percentage on such plays. He also has shown some sneaky athleticism and rushed for 260 yards and six touchdowns for a 68.1 rushing grade.

Lock's penchant for taking shots down the field has taken his game to new heights. On downfield throws, his 126.3 passer rating and 54.7 percent adjusted completion percentage both rank first among the top draft-eligible quarterbacks. His big arm and ability to put touch on the deep ball is a trait NFL teams have taken notice of in this pre-draft process.

Some of the questions surrounding other quarterback prospects are not present when it comes to Lock. He has had solid back-to-back seasons with overall grades over 80.0, 3,400 yards passing and at least 30 big-time throws. He has shown the ability to anticipate throws and has become a fearless on-field leader.
