ENGLEWOOD — Heading into preseason game two against the Seahawks, Broncos head coach Vic Fangio is looking for some progression from his rookie QB Drew Lock.

"One thing you got to remember about him, he hardly has ever been under center in his life. He’s hardly ever had to call a play in his life—a formation and checks," said Fangio. "Once he gets through that, I think the other stuff will come easier and quicker. He is learning a new offense, how an offense operates, and when he becomes more of quarterback in those regards and feels comfortable where it becomes second nature, the other stuff will start.”

Lock was shaky in his first Denver appearance going 7 for 11 for 34 yards, with two sacks.
