Brock Osweiler, QB, Arizona State

Projecting where Brock Osweiler will be selected isn't easy this far out from the draft. Demand for elite quarterbacks is extremely high and in the 2011 NFL Draft, four QBs went in the first 12 selections and six were taken by pick No. 36. This could push Osweiler into the first half of the first round or somewhere into the second.

Osweiler is a very tall quarterback with a cannon for an arm. For his size, he moves well outside of the pocket, but has sloppy footwork inside the pocket. He's so tall that his throwing motion feels (or seems) a bit elongated. He'll need to shorten and work on his throwing motion in order to be more consistent with his ball placement.

He's not ready at this time, but a good quarterbacks coach will do this young man wonders. Osweiler's problems are mostly tied to his fundamentals and nerves. He seemed to lack confidence in his receivers at times and didn't consistently stand tall in the pocket throughout his progression. He'll need to sharpen his ability to read defenses pre-snap.

All this said, when things are clicking, Osweiler has a nice touch with the football and great velocity. He's a natural competitor and leader who will grow into the position even though he's still a year away.
