ASU's Osweiler receives draft green room invite
But just hours after his pro day workout for numerous NFL teams and 27 days before the NFL Draft, Osweiler's chances of having his name called in prime time by commissioner Roger Goodell appear more realistic than ever.
Osweiler himself explained in a tweet Friday afternoon:
Just received a green room invitation from the NFL! So appreciative and thankful to be asked! Been a dream of mine since I was 8 years old.— Brock Osweiler (@BrockOsweiler) March 31, 2012
Last season, a record 25 players were invited to occupy the NFL Draft green room. Twenty of them were drafted in the first round.
Of the invitees, only UCLA's Akeem Ayers (2nd round) and Rahim Moore (2nd), Kentucky's Randall Cobb (2nd), Virginia Tech's Ryan Williams (2nd) and Mark Herzlich of Boston College (undrafted) didn't have their name called by Goodell during the first round festivities.
Even if Osweiler doesn't go in the first round, his invitation speaks to what NFL teams think of him and his potential, and at the very least, legitimizes his decision to leave ASU early for the bright lights of the NFL.
