Drew Lock has all the tools

I decided to create this new form as I am now a parent with Cerebral Palsy and had a child in Nov. of 2012. I would like to have other parents who have Cerebral Palsy and are raising a child or children share their experiences here.

Drew Lock has all the tools

, but needs development. Could Rich Scangarello turn Lock into a superstar?"One prospect who may interest the Denver Broncos with their 10th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft is former Missouri quarterback. Drew Lock. He is a 6’4” 228 pound quarterback who is considered one of the top quarterbacks in the entire draft. Lock is ranked as the third-best quarterback prospect in the 2019 NFL Draft and is ranked as the 54th overall prospect according to The Draft Network.Lock played four seasons at Missouri and was a four-year starter for them during his college career there and he improved each and every season while there. During his four-year career at Missouri, Lock totaled 12,193 yards passing, 99 touchdowns and 39 interceptions. He completed 56.9% of his passes and also rushed for 437 career yards and total 9 career rushing touchdowns. This past season for Missouri, Lock totaled 3,498 yards passing, 28 touchdowns, 8 interceptions and completed 62.9% of his passes. A pretty solid senior season for the potential first-round pick. Some of the accolades Lock has earned throughout his college career include(Via: Missouri’s player profile on Lock) 2018 Team Bob Jeffries Kansas City Metro Player of the Year2018 Team Captain2018 Preseason All-SEC First Team (Media) 2018 Maxwell Award Preseason Watch List2018 Davey O’Brien Award Preseason Watch ListSEC/Mizzou Single-Season Record Holder for Passing TDs (44 in 2017)Nation’s Leader in TD Passes (44 in 2017)Mizzou Single-Season Passing Efficiency Record Holder (165.67 in 2017)2017 SEC Leader in Passing Efficiency, Passing Yards, Total Offense, Passing Yards per Game, Passing Yards per Completion (led nation), Points Responsible for2017 First-Team All-SEC (AP, Coaches)2017 Walter Camp National Offensive Player of the Week (9/3/17)2017 SEC Offensive Player of the Week (9/5/17; 11/27/17)2017 Team Captain2016 Team CaptainDrew LockQuarterback Todd Davis Jersey , Senior, MissouriHeight: 6’4” Weight: 228 lbs 40 time: 4.69 secondsArm Length: 32 1/2” Hands: 9” Vertical Jump: 31” Broad Jump: 112.0 inches 3-Cone Drill: 7:03 seconds20-Yard Shuttle: 4.12 secondsFilm Room:Scouting Report:Strengths:Prototypical size you look for in a quarterbackFour-year starter at Missouri and improved each year despite having new OC’s each yearNoted for his intelligence and ability to learn the playbookArm strength is evident he makes it look easyQuick release Plus athleticism and has a basketball background Has all the tools you look forFlashes high-end potential Good deep ball accuracyGunslinger mentalityHas good pocket awareness to avoid sacks Had a strong second half to his senior seasonComp % would be better if it weren’t for dropsAn excellent scheme fit for the BroncosWeaknesses:Your classic boom or bust prospectAccuracy is lacking, but did improve on it each year in collegeStruggles big time with pressureMechanics are inconsistent and basically pretty much everything about his game is lacking consistencyNeeds to learn to throw with touchMechanics, footwork, and mental processing need developmentPlayed under four different offensive coordinators so he never had a chance to settle into a schemeIs a gunslinger for better or for worseStruggled against talented defenses in the SEC Does Drew Lock make sense for the Denver Broncos in the first-round of the 2019 NFL Draft?:He’s the best fit for the Broncos in this draft.The Broncos interest in Lock is well documented. At the Senior Bowl is was being widely spread that the Broncos and General Manager John Elway was in love with Drew Lock. There were even reports/rumors that the Broncos have been doing their homework on Lock as well. Now all of this was before they acquired quarterback Joe Flacco, but I am willing to bet his acquisition didn’t change much on Lock.If the Broncos are looking for their quarterback of the future in this draft then Lock should be their guy. He fits best in a vertical passing offense, something the Broncos plan on having under Rich Scangarello. So it makes a ton of sense schematically and he is really the only top prospect in this draft who fits that mold.Also, Rich Scangarello’s presence is key here. He was brought in to do two things for the Broncos. One was to implement the zone-blocking scheme that flourished in Denver before and the other was to develop a young quarterback into a starter. His work with Nick Mullens is what made his coaching stock grow and San Francisco 49ers Head Coach Kyle Shanahan has vouched for his former coach countless times. So to see what he can do with a talented prospect like Lock is intriguing. In the end, I am on the fence about this potential selection. If it were to happen I would buy in to his potential and development into a starting quarterback. If they decided to pass on Lock I would be relieved because he’s such a boom or bust prospect. The selection makes sense, but it would be very risky for the Broncos and potentially one that gets General Manager John Elway fired if it fails. Washington drafted Champ Bailey with the seventh overall choice in 1999. Bailey made four Pro Bowls there, but Washington traded him (and a second-round pick) to the Broncos for running back Clinton Portis.Portis had a successful career in Washington with 8,164 yards from scrimmage and 49 total touchdowns in seven years, but he wasn’t Bailey.Bailey, who said a day earlier he didn’t hear from anyone in Washington until this week , paid his respects to those who drafted him and helped him. But he dedicated most of his 30-minute, 35-second Hall of Fame speech on his 10-year career in Denver“The best thing for my career happened in 2004,” Bailey said. “I was traded to the Denver Broncos. “Once I began to learn about Mr. [Pat] Bowlen and the Denver Broncos, I was sold. There are a few things I learned to appreciate from the good leaders: They lead by example; they’re accountable; they’re competitive; and they know how to win. That was what I learned and loved about Mr. B.”After finishing with his long thank yous to everyone in Denver, which he said will always be his home, Bailey ended with a message. Bailey pointed out that most of the people he mentioned in his speech are black men. “My brothers,” Bailey said. “Some of you are athletes; some of you are not athletes. But we are all black men first, something we have more expertise in than any aspect of our lives. I’m a firm believer that if you want to create change, you better start with your friends and your family. So I’m going to start here today. The first thing people see when they look at me is not a Pro Football Hall of Famer or a husband or a father. They see me first as a black man. So on behalf of all the black men that I’ve mentioned tonight, and many of you are out there, you’ve had most of the same experiences I’ve had in my lifetime, we say this to our white friends: When we tell you about our fears, please listen. When we tell you we’re afraid for our kids, please listen. When we tell you there are many challenges we face because of the color of our skin John Elway Jersey , please listen. And please do not get caught up in how the message is delivered. “Yes, most of us who are black athletes are black men first. Understand this, the things that make us great on the field — our size and our aggression — are the same things that can get us killed off the field. I believe if we start listening, there’s no telling the progress we can make. All of us are dads, sons, brothers, your friends. We all understand that if we can’t get our friends to listen, then no one will. And to my black brothers, if you do not have anything positive to say about our social challenges, please keep your mouths shut.” Bailey, who had 52 interceptions and seven forced fumbles, was a first-ballot Hall of Famer.
