Broncos HC Vic Fangio: QB Drew Lock "doesn't know how to pitch yet"

While speaking after practice Friday, Denver Broncos head coach Vic Fangio was asked about rookie quarterback Drew Lock and he was quite honest about Lock. Per Mike Klis of 9News, Fangio said of Lock "his college offense had no carryover to pro offenses. He was under duress a lot ... I don’t think he’s as far along being an NFL-ready QB as he could have been. … He’s not a QB yet. He’s a hard-throwing pitcher who doesn’t know how to pitch yet.’’

Fantasy Impact: 

Not that there was much of a chance Lock would unseat Joe Flacco as the starting quarterback this season anyway, but this quote from Fangio shows Lock has a long way to go before becoming a starter. It speaks to why he went from a presumably top-ten pick in the draft among those in the media to the No. 42 selection. The issues with Lock's contract didn't help his cause either. Either way, there is not a lot of love, fantasy-wise, for the quarterback situation in Denver, despite the weapons on offense. Flacco is ranked No. 30 among quarterbacks, while Lock is not in the current top 41.
