Brock Osweiler

The closer we come to the draft, the more and more I think that Elway is going to pull the trigger on Brock Osweiler with the second pick. I am not one of the few people on MHR who does in fact want to use such an early pick on a quarterback of the future when we are in win-now mode, but I wanted to see what we potentially were getting so I began to look at some of his film today and was very impressed. His arm strength, accuracy and poise in the pocket were all great and the added surprise bonus was the athletic ability that he showed. He has a Phillip Rivers-esque type of release which he can easily pull off due to his height, the guy has a CANNON and can make all the throws. Most would assume a quarterback who is just south of 6'7 would be a statue in the pocket, but Osweiler breaks that stereotype. A former basketball player, Osweiler commited to Gonzaga for basketball his sophomore year of high school until he changed his mind and decided to play quarterback for ASU. Brock is also intelligent and I think he could really hit his full potential learning under Peyton Manning and John Elway for 3-5 years.

So... in conclusion.. I would not be thrilled if we did use our 2nd round pick on Osweiler as I believe we need to take a DT/CB/RB who can contribute right away... but I won't be losing sleep at night worrying about it because I honestly do think that Elway plans on drafting a quarterback in the first 3 rounds and that Osweiler will be that guy.I would be much happier about the scenario if he fell to us in the 3rd round but I am not sure he would fall to 87.
