2012 NFL Draft Grades: Denver Broncos Get Low Marks For Drafting Brock Osweiler

The Denver Broncos apparently didn't have that good a draft. One of the big issues was drafting project quarterback Brock Osweiler, who was drafted with the 57th pick overall in the second round and will probably not be playing for some time.

Chris Burke of Sports Illustrated filed his report card, and the Broncos ended up with a grade of D.

Help us, Peyton Manning, you’re our only hope. This doesn’t feel like a draft that will put Denver over the top. DT Derek Wolfe fills a need, but Jerel Worthy or Devon Still would have been safer picks, and the Brock Osweiler selection at 57 makes absolutely no sense.

With Peyton Manning likely to start for some time, it might be awhile for Osweiler sees significant action.

There is no comment on the Broncos for drafting Osweiler's ASU teammate Omar Bolden, who the Broncos selected with the 101st pick in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft
