Missouri senior QB Drew Lock accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.
Lock (6'4/225) finished the 2018 regular season throwing for 3,125 yards (63.2-percent completions) with a 25/8 TD/INT ratio. Both his yardage and touchdown tallies were considerably down from 2017, but he was noticeably more accurate this time around after managing to complete just 57.8% of his passes during the previous campaign. The Athletic's Dane Brugler passed along near the end of November that scouts he has talked with believe that Lock will ultimately be drafted in the first round so long as he puts forth his best foot during the predraft evaluation process over the coming months. A sharp showing down in Mobile during Senior Bowl festivities would be a good start. Dec 6 - 12:07 PM

Missouri senior QB Drew Lock completed 16-of-25 passes for 225 yards with two scores in a 38-0 win over Arkansas on Saturday.

Lock's day was over with quickly as the Tigers were up big by the end of the third quarter. He added two touchdowns on the ground as well, one from three yards away and the other from nine yards out. He continued to impress, this time in front of multiple NFL front office members and most notably Broncos GM John Elway. The Athletic's Dane Brugler reported, "NFL scouts I've talked to are convinced Lock goes round one with a strong pre-draft process." Depending on which quarterbacks declare for the draft, Lock has a good chance to be the first one off the board. Missouri will have a couple of weeks off prior to a bowl appearance.
Nov 23 - 5:47 PM

Missouri senior QB Drew Lock completed 21-of-30 passes for 257 yards with two scores in a 50-17 throttling of Tennessee on Saturday.

This was a thorough clubbing by the Tigers, who have -- again -- turned their season around in the second half. Lock was solid in the victory, not turning the football over and finding the end zone for the 22nd and 23rd time, respectively. A team that was once out of bowl contention now has a chance to win eight games, and Lock (6'4/225) has a lot to do with that. They close the year with Arkansas on Friday.
Nov 17 - 7:00 PM

Per Pro Football Focus, Missouri senior QB Drew Lock completed 10-of-13 passes for 144 yards and two touchdowns when being blitzed in Saturday's game against Vanderbilt.

Lock was strong against the blitz but had his moments of poor play otherwise. He was horribly inaccurate in the first half, completing just 11-of-20 passes with an interception. The Tigers were trailing at halftime to an underwhelming Vanderbilt squad, but Lock flashed his potential on the way towards a comeback 33-28 win. Lock will be an incredibly divisive prospect for the 2019 draft with some scouts believing he could be the first quarterback off the board if Oregon's Justin Herbert and Ohio State's Dwayne Haskins don't declare.

Missouri senior QB Drew Lock completed 22-of-33 passes for 253 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 33-28 win over Vanderbilt.

It was a tail of two halves for the potential first-round quarterback. After going trailing 21-13 at half time, Lock (6'4/225) completed 11-of-13 passes for 157 yards with two TDs and one INT to lead Missouri to a comeback win. There are two ways to look at this: It was a gutsy comeback win, or why is a potential first-round QB trailing to Vandy at home going into the fourth quarter? It's another puzzle piece into what will be a divided NFL Draft evaluation. Walter Football's Charlie Campbell wrote that 5-of-7 NFL sources believe Lock will be a first-round pick, but he has games against Tennessee and Arkansas to help answer some questions for those who are skeptical of his transition to the NFL.
Nov 10 - 6:14 PM

In a survey of seven NFL sources, five told Walter Football's Charlie Campbell that they believe Missouri senior QB Drew Lock will be drafted in the first round.

This is our belief as well, though whether Lock warrants a first-round selection is a different question entirely than whether he will be selected there. As for the two outliers in this little survey, Campbell relays that "[o]ne director of college scouting was down on Lock and thought he was not a first-rounder, and one national scout thought Lock would need to work out well prior to the draft to go on the opening night." To add some context from a past draft, one evaluator who spoke with Campbell said that he had Lock graded higher than Mitchell Trubisky, who went No. 2 overall back in 2017. We like Justin Herbert as the first quarterback to come off the board in the spring, but would be none too surprised if Lock bumps into the top-10 picks simply due to the way that NFL teams consistently push quarterbacks up the board early in the draft. That could be especially true for the 2019 draft, which is viewed as being thinner at the position than last year's class.
Nov 8 - 2:22 PM

Per Pro Football Focus, Missouri senior QB Drew Lock had a 78.8 percent completion rate in Saturday's game against Florida.

He was good under pressure with a 116.7 passer rating and even better in a clean pocket with a 127.7 passer rating. Without a doubt, this was Lock's best game against a top-25 team. He flashed his upside against a Florida pass defense which ranks 26th in the country per S&P+. Scouts will look back on this game as a case for why Lock should be among one of the first quarterbacks taken in the 2019 draft.
Nov 4 - 12:01 PM

Missouri senior QB Drew Lock completed 24-of-32 passes for 250 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 38-17 win over No. 11 Florida.

Lock (6'4/225) had been underwhelming against SEC teams -- he was also 0-9 against ranked teams heading into today -- and many draft analysts dropped him in their draft rankings because of it, but the senior quarterback had one of his best games of the year against a Florida pass defense that ranked 26th in the country according to S&P+. Lock showed off quality arm strength on all three of his touchdown strikes and his draft stock climbed back up because of it. The senior quarterback now has 19 touchdown passes to just six interceptions through nine games after throwing for 44 scores as a junior. Lock should have another fine game at home against Vanderbilt next week, and there will be tons of NFL eyes on him down the stretch.
Nov 3 - 7:52 PM

Missouri senior QB Drew Lock completed 15-of-27 passes for just 165 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in Saturday's 15-14 loss against Kentucky.

Missouri entered the game with at least 29 points in six of their seven contests, with a 39-10 setback at Alabama on Oct. 13 as the only exception. The Wildcats defense has been a key reason why Big Blue carried a top-15 ranking into play in Columbia. Lock and the Tigers will go back to the drawing board looking to right the ship next Saturday at Florida. They need to find two wins in the final four games to send Lock out on a high note in a bowl game.
Oct 27 - 8:17 PM

Missouri senior QB Drew Lock completed 23-of-29 passes for 350 yards with four touchdowns in a 65-33 blowout win over Memphis on Saturday.

A much better effort for Lock on Saturday than the one he had against Alabama, but -- spoiler alert -- Memphis isn't quite as good as Alabama is. Still, this was a nice reminder that the senior signal-caller isn't bereft of talent, and if this game was close it could have been an even bigger effort. He was accurate, on-time, and didn't turn the football over. Again, however, it was against a Memphis defense that leaves a lot -- a lot -- to be desired. A much tougher contest comes next Saturday against Kentucky.
Oct 20 - 7:36 PM

Missouri senior QB Drew Lock completed 13-of-26 passes for 142 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in Saturday's 39-10 loss to Alabama.

Before the game, Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline wrote that Lock needs to play well against Alabama or "red flags will be raised." Well... Lock didn't play well. The senior quarterback started the game with an interception that was nearly returned for a touchdown, but it wasn't just the INTs. Missouri wasn't able to move the ball with Lock averaging 5.46 yards per pass attempt. It's always tough for quarterbacks going against Bama defenses, but quarterbacks trying to sneak into the first round need to play better than how Lock played on Saturday. Lock will bring 12/6 TD/INT ratio into next week's game against Memphis.
Oct 14 - 12:20 AM

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline writes that if Missouri senior QB Drew Lock "plays as bad or worse against Alabama (as he did against Georgia and South Carolina) red flags will be raised."

"This is a chance for Lock to make a statement and prove the Georgia and South Carolina contests were an exception to the rule," Pauline writes. The Missouri prospect failed to complete 50% of his passes in either of the mentioned contests, and was picked off three times to boot. Pauline refers to the 6-foot-4, 225-pounder's "decision-making, accuracy and most of all his pass placement" as "worrisome." While shining through against Alabama is obviously a steep task, we've seen great quarterbacks rise above the monster before. Justin Herbert will likewise have an intriguing matchup on Saturday, going against Washington's stacked secondary. We'll be watching both games very, very closely.
Oct 12 - 3:39 PM

Missouri senior QB Drew Lock completed just 17-of-36 passes for 204 yards with two interceptions in a 37-35 loss to South Carolina on Saturday.

A couple of caveats for Lock: The weather in this one was awful, and was delayed for over an hour because of the conditions. The Tigers also had trouble to hold onto the football, as several passes were dropped in the loss. All of that being said and considered, Lock (6'4/225) wasn't at his best, or close. He threw a silly interception that should have become a throw-away on a screen that lead to a touchdown, and he overthrew or just missed on several other throws. This was not a first-round performance. Lock and the Tigers will now have a tremendous test next Saturday against Alabama.
Oct 6 - 5:22 PM

CBS Sports NFL Draft writer Chris Trapasso believes that Missouri senior QB Drew Lock hurt his stock with his performance on Saturday against Georgia.

To be fair to Lock, the senior signal-caller didn't get much help; and playing against a stout defense like Georgia is a bad time to not get help. Still, there were obvious issues for the 6-foot-4, 225-pound quarterback; completing 23-of-48 passes and throwing a pick in the loss. "Overall, Lock made a handful of his normal accurate fastballs, but he never really got comfortable, and the game got out of hand in a hurry," Trapasso writes. He also notes that Lock made several throws off his back foot, and was at times too patient in the pocket. The talent is obvious, but Lock needs to be better going forward if he's going to challenge to be the first quarterback off the board.

Missouri senior QB Drew Lock completed 23-of-48 passes for 220 yards, no touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 43-29 loss to Georgia.

Lock (6'4/225) wasn't getting much help from his wideouts in this one -- both teams played pretty sloppily -- but even so, it was a disappointing showing for the senior gunslinger, who could use a nice performance or two against top-flight competition as he tries to solidify his draft stock. The Tigers will be off on bye next weekend, with South Carolina showing on the schedule for Week 6. It'll be Alabama after that. Prior to Saturday's statistical letdown, Lock had thrown for at least three touchdown passes in all three of Missouri's games.
