Yesterday, the Arizona State Sun Devils held their annual Pro Day, showing off their draft eligible players, including quarterback Brock Osweiler. After sitting out the NFL Scouting Combine thanks to a foot injury, Osweiler was looking to have a standout performance at the Pro Day.
According to NFL.com's Gil Brandt, Osweiler did just that. Throwing 72 passes, and completing 66 of them, Osweiler jumped from a third round pick, to possibly a first round choice, according to Brandt.
While Brandt is only one person, he did write that there is "a lot of excitement" in the league surrounding Osweiler right now. Included at the workout were scouts and front office personnel from the Arizona Cardinals, Seattle Seahawks, Miami Dolphins, and Cleveland Browns. Scouts did agree with Brandt that Osweiler's workout could move him up draft boards - but most were saying he could move into the second round, not the first as Brandt projects.
Osweiler is nearly 6-foot, 7-inches tall, and was the tallest quarterback in college last year. His height is seen as one of the weaknesses, holding Osweiler back in the draft. He started 15 games at Arizona State in his career, with a 60.6% completion rate, 33 touchdowns, and 15 interceptions.
