Arizona State QB Brock Osweiler held his pro day Friday afternoon in Tempe, and according to the player himself, had a solid afternoon throwing the football.
He's not the only one who feels that way.
NFL.com's Gil Brandt, who serves as an analyst now but spent nearly 30 years running the Dallas Cowboys, says the QB vaulted himself into the first round of the draft with his performance Friday.
The scripted throwing session was run by Noel Mazzone, who recently left the Arizona State coaching staff to become an assistant at UCLA. Osweiler threw 72 passes, with seven hitting the ground. The seven misses were not, however, an indicator of wildness; his accuracy was very good. He presented himself very well, which is important for a quarterback, and interacted well with his receivers.
Osweiler's stock has risen considerably since he declared for the draft following the season, and Brandt is not alone in thinking the (now) 6-foot-7 QB could go as soon as the first round.
Of course, Osweiler will still have to work out for specific teams before the April 26 draft, which means there's still time for him to change opinions -- good or bad.
But for now, things are looking up for the 21-year-old.
