Drew Lock

This isn’t just me being a Denver Broncos homer — Drew Lock looks like he could be the real deal. He only has five games under his belt, but the poise and swagger he’s shown is something you want at the quarterback position (have you seen him rapping on the sideline?).

Lock is on a very team friendly deal with three years left on his contract. Coming in at 70 OVR, Lock has ratings of 83 Speed, 88 Throw Power, 80 Short Accuracy, 79 Mid Accuracy, and 80 Deep Accuracy. All of the ratings are there to be successful. If you use him right and develop him, Drew Lock is a player to build your offense around.

Justin Herbert

Another QB taken in the top 10 of the 2020 NFL Draft (6th Overall to the Chargers), Justin Herbert passes the eye test coming in at 6’6″ and 236 lbs. Herbert is a 70 OVR with 82 Speed and 92 Throw Power (better arm strength than the Tiger King, Joe Burrow aka Joe Burreaux). He also has 83 Short Accuracy, 78 Mid Accuracy and 76 Deep Accuracy.

Herbert is another quarterback that won’t be easy to trade for, but with elite arm strength, it’s worth it. It’s always easy to raise a QB’s accuracy than it is to raise throwing power. The combination of height, speed and arm strength could make Herbert a force to be reckoned with.
