NGT: Pat Shurmur on Drew Lock

CromartiesKid21 : 1/16/2020 6:23 pm
Thought this was interesting considering Gettleman gave Shurmur the credit in initially bringing Daniel Jones onto his radar. Must be hard for Pat to hype up a QB he did not want, but hey it's a job

Quote:
Pat Shurmur on scouting Drew Lock last year: "Obviously, we were in the market for a QB. We had a very, very, high opinion of Drew. We did a lot of work on him. We were very certain he was going to have an outstanding career. I'm really looking forward to getting to work with him."
I mean what else do you want him to say?

Actions speak louder than words. With two first round picks in hand and a defensive prospect they reportedly loved on the board - Gettleman has not been shy about how much he wanted Allen - they drafted Daniel Jones.

Pretty sure you can "like" more than one player

when your draft slot comes up. But you can only draft one guy, and that guy was Jones. Ill say this: Lock only played in like 4-5 games this year, but he looked pretty damn good. Broncos fans here are convinced they have finally found "their guy" after striking out the past few years.
I remember hearing somewhere that the Giants liked Jones the most

But also liked Lock over Haskins
I have a feeling one of the best...

off-season moves is Shurmur going to Denver. For all of his HC problems, and there were many, I'm sold on his craftsmanship with QBs.

So Lock should be in good hands...
I think it was rumored that Locke

Was QB2 on our board. Nothing wrong with that.
What an unreasonable take by the OP

just brutal

Fangio just needs to yell in his ear....run the ball.

good guy, and he's a very good O coordinator. Drew Lock is in great hands with him and he will do a great job in grooming him.
What he really means is

Lock can be a starter in this league, lol
IS there any doubt that Jones was the better choice

After one season and Lock doing well in his limited opportunities to start? Yeah of course there is a question about whom was the better selection!

Give it 5 years...

Hell there are still questions about Eli/Rivers/Ben, especially Eli vs Ben so long as your question remains strictly football on the field.

That was my understanding too. If they had passed on Jones at #6, and Redskins had picked him, the Giants had Lock ahead of Haskins.
Itís fascinating to me that Shurmur was OL and gets the best out of  
bradshaw44 : 1/16/2020 8:49 pm : link
QBs, but he sucks at developing OL. Or even making veterans maintain their previously good technique on the OL.
I remember Gettleman saying something along the lines  
barens : 1/16/2020 9:31 pm : link
Of Jones being 1a and Lock being 1b.

He also tweeted out that the Broncos offered up their 5th overall pick, 2nd rounder in 2018 and 2019 1st rounder for the Giants 2nd pick.

Soooooo
I liked Lock the best of the QBs coming out

Biggest negative against Lock is the lack of pro success for QBs from

The same program. I donít know why that happened.

And the Giants drafted Jones with the 6th pick!

Gettleman must be some kind of wizard? Or you are all mixed up about the Giants' and Denver's draft slots last year?

Me too, that said, I wasn't really high on this QB class. I lied even more that he could have been taken in the 2nd round. It still wouldn't surprise me if Lock ends up being the best of the bunch.
Drew Locks girlfriend is a certified smokeshow.

An NFL quarterback with a smoke show WAG? Color me shocked.

I really like Lock and think that he will end up being a great QB. I wanted the Giants to take Josh Allen at 6 and then Lock at 17 or in the early 2nd round.

I am OK with Jones and Lawrence turned out to be a beast but they could have had Allen and Lawrence and then traded up to get Lock instead of Baker.
Meh. Hindsight is 20/20.
