One of the biggest surprises in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft in Nashville, Tennessee was the fact that Missouri quarterback Drew Lock wasn’t picked.
Lock, who played at Lee’s Summit High School in Missouri, watched from the draft’s green room while the Arizona Cardinals took Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray (Allen HS, Texas) No. 1 overall; Daniel Jones of Duke (Charlotte Latin School, North Carolina) was taken by the New York Giants at No. 6; and the Washington Redskins selected Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins (Bulls School, Maryland) at No. 15.
Lock was a four-star recruit in high school who participated in the Elite 11 quarterback competition in 2014. I talked with Lock about his time at the Elite 11 and his upcoming senior season on the High School Football America Radio Show on July 17, 2014. You can listen to that interview and the entire show below.
