The Denver Broncos have snuffed out any hint of a quarterback controversy before it could even begin.
New Broncos head coach Vic Fangio provided an honest assessment of rookie quarterback and second-round draft pick Drew Lock after just the team's second day of training camp.
"I don't think he's as far along being an NFL-ready QB as he could have been," Fangio said of the Missouri product, according to Mike Klis of 9News.
"He's not a QB yet. He's a hard-throwing pitcher who doesn't know how to pitch yet."
Lock took over as Missouri's starter after the first month of his freshman season but was always considered more of a long-term pro option rather than an immediate starter. He'll get the chance to sit and learn behind former Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco to start the 2019 season.
