In Lock’s first 6 full games of the season, he ranked 31 out of 32 eligible passers per the EPA per play metric. In his final 6 full games of the season, he improved to 14 out of 32 by the same metric. That’s a massive leap, and we’ll need another similar leap in 2021 if he’s going to establish himself as a franchise quarterback.
With a second year in Shurmur’s system, the return of Courtland Sutton, and a second year version of Jeudy and Hamler, he will have everything at his disposal to make that happen. We can only wait and see. Go Broncos!
