I've read quotes from the team "that he wants to be great" meaning he's

investing time at the facility studying and working on learning and improving mechanics.

He seems like a decent guy. What is clear however is that he is still struggling reading defenses. No preseason games hurt. Some guys really need them. Plus, no Courtland Sutton last year hurt.

Lock's mechanics still need work.

My pretend scout analysis: the tools are there to be an above-average starter and he might still get there. His mental makeup seems very laid back Brian Griese to me. His accuracy has to improve. Reading defenses has to improve. Consistency is missing and needs big improvement. Not reliable. Seems to lack a strong competitive fire. I trust him more than I did Paxton Lynch to be professional but he has to prove his capability this season. He has a quality set of playmakers if they are all healthy. The OL has to be better, especially up the middle and at RT. Shurmur has to be better.

Expect Denver to stress Lock to test him. He has to meet the challenge. I lean towards him being better. I don't see Denver drafting a QB in round 1 unless one surprisingly drops. But expect someone to be here to push him hard.
