Broncos rookie Drew Lock won’t win the starting job out of training camp. Will he even be the backup to Joe Flacco?Broncos offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello said the No. 2 spot “absolutely” remains a competition.“We’ve had a plan from Day One of training camp and we’re executing it Womens Noah Fant Jersey
,” Scangarello said, via Ryan O’Halloran of the . “The bottom line is, there is a balance of how you try to develop each guy, but there’s a finite amount of reps. . . .Practice, it might even be on run plays, is good for Drew to call the play, break the huddle and run the show.”Lock took most of the second-team reps this week.The Broncos used Lock as the third quarterback in both preseason games behind Flacco and Kevin Hogan. He got 28 snaps in the Hall of Fame Game and 48 in the second game.He has completed 24 of 39 passes for 214 yards with a touchdown and an interception.“You have to be steady and continue to improve your craft,” Scangarello said. “It won’t happen overnight. It’s going to be incremental as you get more comfortable in this league and in this offense and what it takes to be a quarterback.” Could Trey Johnson win the bubble war at cornerback?" Denver Broncos Roster2019 Broncos roster review: Cornerback Trey JohnsonNew,8commentsCould Trey Johnson win the bubble war at cornerback?MDTIn an era where speed kills faster than ever before, athleticism is at the utmost premium in the NFL. At no position is it quite as necessary as defensive back, where down after down a player can be schemed onto an island against some of the fastest athletes the league has ever seen. City to see how slow corners could leave the Broncos dead in the water in 2019. This is why Trey Johnson was a savvy gamble in April. After going undrafted out of Villanova he signed as an free agent with the Pittsburgh Steelers last year, but wound up on injured reserve after hurting his shoulder in training camp. Following the 2018 season, Pittsburgh moved on, which is why he made it to the Broncos voluntary veteran minicamp. Fangio must have liked what he saw, because he signed shortly thereafter. Given the interest Chicago showed in Johnson last fall Womens John Elway Jersey
, it bodes well for Johnson’s odds of making the roster. The good29 passes defensed in career suggests promising ball skills.Corner/Safety experienceWilling tacklerWas a strong coverage player in collegeIt’s easy to see why Fangio would be intrigued by Johnson, as he brings a lot of the skills sought after for his system. Johnson has the tools, plays the run, and offers an intriguing amount of versatility. Considering the fact that it’s all but impossible to have too many defensive backs in today’s league, Johnson has a decent shot.Johnson has exciting ball skills. The badUnderweightInjury concernsMay not have the kind of change of direction skills to trust in tight coverageDrag down tackler, not a punisher.The biggest concerns over Johnson long term come with his frame and the punishment he’ll take at the NFL level. He missed the 2014 season with an injury and all of his rookie year because of the shoulder. Combine that with a light frame and the thought of him having to take on some of the bigger receivers, tight ends, or backs in the league is a question. Beyond that, a 4.20 Short Shuttle is right around the 25th percentile for baseline NFL measurables. So while the 2nd year pro is fast in a straight line, his ability to adjust and keep up with route runners is a concern. Trey Johnson’s roster status with the BroncosIn my initial 53 I predicted Johnson would find a way to make the Broncos roster. It does all depend on if Elway and Fangio keep 6 corners. Chris Harris, Isaac Yiadom and Bryce Callahan are locks and Kareem Jackson’s versatility makes him a bit of a wildcard. De’Vante Bausby leads the pack of the second tier guys so it comes down to a number squeeze. At present I still have him as my favorite between Horace Richardson, Linden Stephens, and Alijah Holder at the back end of the roster. What helps Johnson’s cause is the fact that of those last 4 guys, he seems least likely to make it through waivers. Johnson is one of the intriguing bubble guys the Fangio Broncos have brought in.
