Missouri senior Drew Lock is the odds-on favorite to be the first quarterback taken in the April draft, at least for now. 

That may seem like a big consolation prize after the Lee's Summit High School product was stopped a yard short of a first-and-goal in the closing minutes of the Liberty Bowl. The Tigers' late rally came up short in the 38-33 loss to Oklahoma State on Monday.

Lock leaves Columbia with 12,195 yards passing, just shy of Chase Daniel's record of 12,515. In 2017, he broke the Southeastern Conference record for passing touchdowns, with 44. In his career at MU, Lock threw for 99 touchdowns and rushed for 9 more.

Daniel is listed as the second string quarterback for the Chicago Bears

Lock is considered an ideal pro-style quarterback, with a strong arm, good decision-making skills and a frame that measures 6-foot-4 and 225 pounds.

Mizzou has two more senior NFL prospects who are hoping for NFL paychecks in the 2019 season. Marcell Frazier is a 6-foot-5-inch, 260 pound defensive end from Portland, Oregon. J'Mon Moore is a 6-foot-3, 190 pound wide receiver out of Missouri City, Texas.
