John Elway may think he’s found the next John Elway.
The Denver Post reported that Elway, now the Broncos president and general manager, walked away from the Senior Bowl impressed with Missouri star quarterback Drew Lock.
“The worst-kept secret at the Senior Bowl: John Elway is smitten with Lock,” Denver Post reporter Mark Kiszla wrote.
The Broncos pick at No. 10 in April’s draft, and Lock is projected to be one of the top quarterbacks taken, along with Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins and Duke’s Daniel Jones. The Giants pick at No. 6 and the Jaguars at No. 7 with both — depending on how free agency unfolds — potentially interested in quarterbacks. Would Elway have to move up in the draft to get Lock?
