Sun Devil QB Brock Osweiler goes 57th to Denver
The decision, while iffy at the time, proved to be the right one for the QB, as he was taken in the second round of the NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos Thursday.
The 6-foot-7 QB, who started every game his junior season, completed 63.2 percent of his passes for 4,036 yards and 26 touchdowns in leading the Sun Devils to a 6-7 record.
However, any questions people may have had over Osweiler's relative inexperience (just 15 career starts) were outweighed by the QB's potential, as he has size, mobility and one of the draft's stronger arms.
And, as a second-round pick, Osweiler presents excellent value as a player who can be developed as a QB and not have the expectations of an entire franchise placed upon him early in his career.
Osweiler now gets the opportunity to tutor under future Hall-of-Famer Peyton Manning and John Elway, the Broncos' current executive vice president of football operations. Elway was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2004.
