Referring to the Broncos’ young and energetic offense, Drew Lock is confident that they could be at par with the Chiefs’ standards. The 23-year-old second-round pick added to his statement saying they could achieve the said standard in a short period of time.

Drew Lock’s Thoughts on Broncos’ New Offense

The Broncos leveled up their offense in the NFL Draft. The team acquired receivers Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler. Along with the running back Melvin Gordon and right guard Graham Glasgow.

“I’m super-pumped about the guys we added,” Lock told NFL Network, before adding “You talk about Melvin and Graham, two experienced players to help this offense start rolling early when the season starts.” 

Having said the relevance of Broncos’ offense, Lock revealed that he is working towards developing a new system. He said he is picking up the Broncos’ offense 10 times faster than a year ago. “There are similar carryovers from the last one … [and] it’s easier for me to learn because I’ve found the way that fits me best as far as learning a new offense goes” Lock said. Going into the NFL, Lock thought of himself to be an “extraordinary player”. Further adding that it took him some time to “adjust” Broncos’ offense.

However, the Chiefs would be going into the Season 2020 with an extraordinary form. The coach Andy Reid claimed that the team is making arrangements to improve their game even further. That being said, Broncos’ comparison with the Chiefs does seem a bit of a long shot. At the same time, adding enough new blood to the team, Broncos are determined to end their losing streak against the Chiefs this year.
