Gary Zimmerman Jersey , most people thought it was somewhere between a joke and a publicity stunt: The 31-year-old Tebow hadn’t played since high school. It just wasn’t realistic to think he could amount to anything after so much time off.But Tebow, to an extent, proved the doubters wrong. Although he was far from the best player in Double-A baseball last year, he was at least respectable, and looked like a legitimate baseball player. This was no publicity stunt.Unfortunately, Tebow has moved up to Triple-A this year, and the early returns are ugly.The stats for the Syracuse Mets, Tebow’s team, tell the story. He’s last on the team with a .120 batting average, last with a .185 on-base percentage and last with a .200 slugging percentage. He has struck out a team-high 10 times and hasn’t hit a home run.“He’s still learning how to hit some of this pitching,” Syracuse manager Tony DeFrancesco told ESPN. “I mean, these guys are throwing 97, 98 miles per hour. They’re spinning the baseball. He’s making some adjustments.”A 31-year-old minor leaguer who’s “still learning” wouldn’t last if he weren’t Tim Tebow, so there’s no doubt that the Mets organization is giving him a longer leash than it would most players. But he’s going to have to learn soon, or else his hopes of making it to the majors will go from slim to none. John Elway was very clear that he wants Lock to come in and learn from Joe Flacco, and not have the pressure of starting right away."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Broncos NewsBroncos 2019 Draft ClassBroncos PodcastsBroncos 2019 ScheduleKey Offseason DatesCommunity RulesFull ArchiveBroncos StoriesScheduleRosterStatsOdds Shop About Masthead Community Guidelines StubHub ✕NFL DraftBroncos Draft 2019Elway: Drew Lock here to learn and compete as a backup, not be the starterNew,79commentsJohn Elway was very clear that he wants Lock to come in and learn from Joe Flacco, and not have the pressure of starting right away. Elway: Drew Lock here to learn and compete as a backup, not be the starterThe last time Denver drafted a quarterback, they tried this same approach. Everyone knew Paxton Lynch needed time and seasoning before he even had a chance to be a competent starter, as he was as raw as they come out of the draft.However Tom Jackson Jersey , the issue then was Denver was fresh out of Plan As at quarterback and were starting a seventh-round pick, Trevor Siemian, in the meantime. We all know that the pick of Paxton Lynch didn’t pan out, but Denver’s plan to sit Paxton Lynch and have him learn and develop didn’t work out either. When asked about it in hindsight last year, Elway admitted that they would have handled things differently with Lynch if they could do it over.That’s likely why after Denver let their third offensive coordinator in three years go at the end of the season, Elway’s goal for this offseason wasn’t necessarily to dive straight into finding a quarterback just yet, but first developing an environment where a quarterback can thrive. That’s one reason Rich Scangarello is here - with a very clear vision for the offense and what it needs to be. Once that is established, Scangarello has talked about flexibility within that and adapting what you’re doing to fit your players, but you have to first establish what you’re doing.Elway reiterated this philosophy a few days ago leading up to the draft at his pre-draft news conference:All of this is laying the groundwork so that when you do bring a quarterback you think can be “the guy,” he has a system and structure around him that enables him to be successful. We saw this with #1 overall pick Jared Goff. Many wanted to write him off as a bust under Jeff Fisher and whatever they were doing on offense, but bring in an offensive coach who has a plan and a scheme that helps your young quarterback, and you have one of the top offenses in the NFL.Or take the example of our friends in Kansas City. Andy Reid had an offensive system in place, a veteran quarterback who knew how to run it, and talented skill position players that operated well within it. All that being already established allowed them to be patient with their draft pick, Patrick Mahomes, and we have painfully seen how that has turned out.So what does all this have to do with Drew Lock?I would argue this has more to do with Elway and his continual learning and evolving his philosophy on the quarterback position. This is about ensuring that this time is different than the last time Denver drafted a quarterback, and Elway is taking very clear steps to make sure it is different. The first steps were set in motion this offseason when Elway brought in an offensive coordinator with experience in a proven offensive system, and then by locking in a veteran quarterback who could manage it.The next step is establishing from Day 1 that Lock is not here to compete for a starting role. In his comments after the second day of the draft wrapped up, Elway repeatedly said his goal for Lock is to come in and learn - both from Joe Flacco and coach Scangarello.This is a wise approach for not only where Denver is at right now, but specifically for a guy like Drew Lock, who, while talented Dennis Smith Jersey , is extremely raw and needs time and work before attempting to become an NFL starter. This is the consensus from every analyst and evaluator that has watched Lock play. Many are split on what his true ceiling could be, but no one disagrees that he, out of perhaps all the other prospects, needs time and development. Those same things were said about Paxton Lynch as well, yet circumstances had him attempting to compete for a starting role in an offense he hadn’t learned, and learning a brand new one next year. I’m not here to make excuses for Lynch, or say that he could have become something more than what he is currently. I’m merely pointing out that in hindsight and a perfect world, Denver’s approach may have looked more like what it is attempting today.Slowly bringing along a second-round pick, while an established veteran is the clear starter, is an environment much more conducive to learning, than expecting a top-10 pick who isn’t near being ready to beat out a 10+ year NFL quarterback.In addition to watching Flacco and learning from him, Elway specifically mentioned Lock getting to work with Scangarello on the points of his game that need the most refinement.All of these comments by Elway send a very clear message not only to Lock, but also to the team, and to the fans. Lock may very well be the future, or at least that’s the hope, but he has plenty to work on before that day comes. Until then, the Broncos will continue with the plan they established before Lock was a Bronco, one that now includes Noah Fant, Dalton Risner, and a host of other young players from last year learning a new offense along with their quarterback Joe Flacco.Let’s remember this the first time Flacco struggles, and a twinge inside of us wants to call for Drew Lock to take his place. I can’t tell you for sure if this plan will work or not. But I can tell you that I feel more confident in both Denver’s approach to and longterm outlook on the quarterback position than I have in a long time.
