With the forty-second pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Cincinnati Bengals select: Drew Lock, Quarterback, University of Missouri

While this may rightly be considered a controversial pick, Lock possesses the necessary tools to succeed at the NFL level. He has great zip on his balls and has increased his accuracy each year at Missouri. Lock has great size as well and looks the part of an NFL quarterback. Critics of Lock will point to the fact that Locks worst games of the season came against Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina, in a stretch where he threw for just one touchdown compared to five interceptions. However, Lock also gave great performances against Florida and Oklahoma State in big games, so there are two sides to this coin. Cincinnati may not find its heir apparent to Andy Dalton with this selection, but it is worth a shot for a franchise that needs to consider different avenues for winning football games.
