ASU's Osweiler would be a first round pick right now
A mobile 6-foot-8, Osweiler is now on the radars of NFL scouts.
"Up in Minnesota a pro personnel man told me ‘Brock Osweiler's got my attention, he has got my attention,'" Arizona Sports 620's Ron Wolfley said.
Wolfley said the Cardinals scouts are also fond of the junior, and if the Sun Devils win Saturday in Eugene and Osweiler's star keeps rising, the question will turn from if he can play in the NFL to whether he'll he stay in Tempe for his senior season.
Because, as Wolfley says, the QB would go in the first round of the draft if it were held right now.
"Christian Ponder was taken No. 12 overall," Wolfley said. "That's because of the state of the quarterback position in the National Football League."
Wolfley contends that while Osweiler is a good prospect, the idea that he'd be a first round pick says more about teams and their desire to find a franchise QB than it does the player's ability, at least right now.
"I just think it speaks to the state of the quarterback position in the National Football League and how desperate teams are to find that guy they can build a team around," he said.
