The 2012 NFL Draft is just a few short months away and there are many quarterback prospects looking to boost their stock with strong workouts and interviews with potential teams. One of those players is Brock Osweiler, who declared for the NFL after a strong junior season in Tempe. According to Todd McShay of ESPN, he could see the 6'8" gunslinger move into the first round and be the third QB selected after Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III.
@Kevin_Weidl momentum building for Osweiler as a late-first round grade after 3 tapes studied.Maybe 3rd QB after Luck, RGIII?— Todd McShay (@McShay13) January 18, 2012
There are not too many teams drafting late in the first round looking for a quarterback other than maybe the Broncos, but a team could certainly try and acquire yet another first round pick to land Osweiler should they feel he is ready for the next level. There are still concerns with the former Sun Devil, most notably his decision making under pressure and pocket presence, but there is a lot to like about Osweiler, especially his arm strength and mobility.
The NFL Draft will run from April 26-28.
