Last week I was able to share some thoughts as to why Daniel Jones is not our QB of the futre. This week let's have a look at Drew Lock.
We've all heard some rumors that the Giants are "obsessed" with Lock, however this may be a cause for "alarm", if this is true, and here is why...
Whenever I look at a QB, I try to see how he stacks up when his other peers play against the same defenses that he does.
What do the numbers show when they all played against South Carolina...
- Drew Lock - 17/36 47.2% 204 Yards 0 TD 2 Int 83.7 QBR
- Jake Fromm 15/18 83.3% 194 Yards 1 TD 1 Int 181.1 QBR
- Trevor lawrence 27/36 75.0% 393 Yards 1 TD 0 Int 175 QBR
As you can see, Lock is almost 40 points lower in completion percentage to Fromm, about 100 points lower in QBR compared to Fromm and Lawrence.
He needed about 20 more passes to throw the same amount of yardage as Fromm, and was almost 200 yards less in passing to Lawrence, while throwing the same amount of throws. He clearly was the worst QB against the same competition.
Now how does Lock stand up to the others when they played against Alabama? One of the best college football teams...
- Drew Lock 13/26 50.0% 142 Yards 1 TD 2 Int 93.2 QBR
- Kyler Murray 19/37 51.4% 308 Yards 2 TD 0 Int 139.1 QBR
- Jake Fromm 25/39 64.1% 301 Yards 3 TD 0 Int 154.3 QBR
- Trevor Lawrence 20/32 62.5% 347 Yards 3 TD 0 Int 184.5 QBR
As you can see, Lock failed again, he was the worst QB out of the four.
He was 14 points lower in completion percentage to Fromm, threw 2 more Int's then everybody else, was 70-100 points lower in QBR to Fromm and Lawrence, yet threw for 150-200 yards less then Lawrence and Fromm.
Does Lock have arm talent? Yes he does, but that doesn't make a QB Great. He is not good out of the pocket, he doesn't throw the ball well when you roll him out.
He also holds on to the ball to long, is not good under pressure, and not very mobile. This is not our QB of the future.
We need a Great, Great QB, and Lock, like Jones is not it.
I'll share soon who I do feel is going to be a star on the next level...
Feel free to discuss.
