NFL Winners and Losers: John Elway might have finally gotten it right at QB with Drew Lock

If Denver Broncos general manager John Elway really, truly thought Drew Lock was a franchise quarterback, he wouldn’t have been the team’s third draft pick in April.

Then again, if the New England Patriots knew Tom Brady would be great, they wouldn’t have waited until the 199th pick to take him either.

Sometimes you catch a break, and maybe Elway finally has fallen into a solution at quarterback. Lock had a very good debut last week in a win over the Los Angeles Chargers, then was great in his second start against the Houston Texans. The Broncos absolutely blasted the Texans, who are in first place of the AFC South and coming off a win over the New England Patriots, and Lock looked like a future star.
