With the rookie jitters out of the way, Broncos quarterback Drew Lock is ready to build on his early NFL success.
"Cross off the first early check marks, make first start, win your first game, make your first road start, to where I can go in and just be ready for a full season," Lock said. "Be dedicated, be the best quarterback, win the most games and hopefully help us win a championship."
The first Denver rookie quarterback to win four games since General Manager/President of Football Ops. John Elway in 1983, the second-year signal caller will look to grow his game with new offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur taking over.
"Watching the Giants, it's going to be an exciting offense to play in, we're going to attack people deep but be smart about it," Lock said.
Elway and company have spent the off-season surrounding their young quarterback with quality pieces such as running back Melvin Gordon, offensive lineman Graham Glasgow and could very well add a top receiver with the N0. 15 overall pick in the upcoming NFL draft.
"You look at some things you thought you might want to go for position wise and I think they're getting the top guys at those positions," Lock said.
Four years removed from their last playoff berth, Broncos Country has reason to believe they'll be back in the near future and their franchise talent is working to make sure that's a Lock in 2020.
"That was the biggest thing for me, was to stay to prepared through all this as best I can," Lock said. "Know it's going to come back, to be the guy, a leader of this team and sure you can work and do this."
