Profile

Summary: Lock seems to have all the tools to be a starting quarterback in the NFL, as evident by his size, arm strength and ability to deliver the ball on a line. While he does struggle with accuracy at times, Lock is projected to be a first-round pick who could immediately step in as a starter.

Lance Zierlein of NFL.com wrote that Lock is a “full-field reader offering prototypical size and arm talent, but one that has a concerning lack of accuracy and consistency against top opponents. Inside of each game, Lock makes reads and throws that are worthy of an early pick. There will also be plays in the same game that highlight his random inaccuracy and issues defeating pocket pressure.”

Lock’s full scouting report on NFL.com can be found here.

Stacking up: NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks has Haskins ranked as the No. 3 quarterback in the 2019 draft. Draft analyst Dane Brugler, who writes for The Athletic, has Lock as the fourth-best quarterback prospect. Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com had Lock as the 24th overall player on his most-recent list of the Top 50 prospects in the 2019 NFL Draft, up three spots from his initial ranking.

Alone at the top: Lock holds the SEC single-season record for touchdown passes with 44, which he set in 2017. Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa ranks second all-time after throwing 43 in 2018.
