Gil Brandt expects Osweiler to be first-round pick
Arizona State quarterback Brock Osweiler didn’t work out at the Combine to a foot injury, but he took part in the Sun Devils’ Friday Pro Day.
According to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic, Osweiler completed 66-of-72 throws with representatives from the Seahawks, Cardinals, Browns, and Dolphins in attendance. A “couple of scouts” Somers talked to projected Osweiler as a third-round prospect who could vault into the second.
NFL.com’s Gil Brandt is higher on Osweiler than the scouts. Much higher. Brandt wrote in a Pro Day recap that he believes Osweiler “vaulted himself into the first round” by demonstrating accuracy in the workout. Per Brandt, “there is a lot of excitement” around the league about Osweiler.
Osweiler only started 15 games at Arizona State, winning seven games with eight losses. At just under 6-foot-7, he was the tallest quarterback in the nation last season.
