Everybody’s swooning over Drew Lock at the Senior Bowl

Here are today’s Mizzou Links.

1. Drew Lock is making the most of the pre-NFL Combine spotlight.

Drew Lock’s week at the Senior Bowl just started on Monday, but he’s already generating perhaps the most buzz in a talented field of quarterbacks.

When you produce meme-able moments like this, it’s easy to see why:

Lock has all the attributes to be the face of a franchise, and that also includes his measureables. Lock measured in at 6-foot-3 34 and 223-pounds with nine-inch hands, which seems to be right in line with his profile from the Missouri football team (6-4, 220).

And then, of course, there’s the arm.

Oh my.

It wasn’t all perfect for Lock on the first day of practices, however. CBS Sports wrote that he had a “mixed showing” on Tuesday, but this was the only blurb about him in their notebook:

Missouri’s Drew Lock didn’t have a super-clean showing, as he held the ball too long on a few reps in 7-on-7s, yet true to form lofted a perfect deep ball for a touchdown and made an extremely long throw from the far hash on deep crosser near the sideline that hit the receiver in the hands but was dropped.

And there was also the report from Chase Goodbread of the NFL Network that a team asked Lock about a cheating incident... from when he was in ninth grade.

Something tells me that incident isn’t going to send Lock sliding down the draft boards.

Despite a run on quarterbacks in the first-round of last year’s draft. there are still plenty of suitors for Lock — who has reportedly already met with Dan Marino and the Miami Dolphins (which picks 13th overall).

But there’s a chance he doesn’t get past one of Marino’s contemporaries at No. 10:

2. Missouri should have a big contingent at the NFL Combine, too.

According to a report by Gabe DeArmond of, Missouri could have as many as six players at the NFL Combine next month.

No surprises there, as Beckner, Emanuel Hall and Lock all seemed like easy invites — and I believe Beckner and Lock’s invites were already reported. Adams, Blanton and Terez Hall are interesting additions, as each could work their way up to mid-round picks, potentially. Blanton and Terez Hall should especially test well, and you could see both of their stocks shoot up dramatically over the next few months.
