The Denver Broncos took a pass on the quarterbacks Thursday night in the first round of the NFL draft but didn't wait long in the second round Friday night to dive in on this year's class of passers.

The Broncos used the 10th pick of the second round (No. 42 overall) to select Missouri quarterback Drew Lock, who started games in all four of his seasons with the nfl jerseys cheap paypal

"Last several hours were definitely interesting," Lock said of being bypassed in the first round. " ... The sun came up (Friday), I was ready to get (Friday) going ... I couldn't be more excited to be a part of this organization."

Denver moved up to select Lock, trading picks 52, 125 and 182 to the Cincinnati Bengals for the 42nd pick, after taking Kansas State offensive lineman Dalton Risner with the 41st pick.3

Lock was the fourth quarterback to be selected in the draft. Kyler Murray, Daniel Jones and Dwayne Haskins were selected in the first round. Like those others, Lock had been projected as a potential first-round pick as well, and he said falling to the second day "certainly" provided more motivation to prove himself.
"I had heard some other teams, we didn't know if he was going to get (taken) by the Raiders," Elway said. " ... We were able to get it done with Cincinnati, so it worked out really well."cheap nike nfl jerseys wholesale

Lock becomes the sixth quarterback John Elway has selected in his tenure as the Broncos' top football executive and is highest QB pick Elway has made since Paxton Lynch was the team's first-round pick in 2016. None of the previous five quarterbacks Elway has selected is currently on the roster, given both Lynch and Chad Kelly were waived last season.

"I know the kind of player I am and know what kind of player I'm going to be, and this adds a little chip to the shoulder bigger than the one that's already on there," Lock said. "I'd say it's almost a full Pringle size -- the king-size Pringles right now -- that's how big the chip on my shoulder is. But it's good. If I for some reason I needed any extra motivation, I definitely got it."
