Denver Broncos blog, news and rumors

Round Three

87.  Brock Osweiler, QB, Arizona State

Don’t freak out just yet. Osweiler may not even be available here, but if he is the Broncos just might take him.

Osweiler is a big project, who will have the time to sit behind Peyton Manning and learn the ropes.

Known for his height, the 6’7 Montana born kid is rising up the draft boards. John Fox, Mike McCoyAdam GaseBrian Xanders, and John Elway all made the trip in early April to see what the hype is all about.

The Broncos are definitely interested in Osweiler and if he’s available in the third round they’ll pull the trigger.

I wrote an entire draft profile post on him earlier this month, so check that out if you want more detail on him.

Something about this just makes sense. As fans we always find ourselves wondering why a certain player has been picked, but not enough of the defense has been addressed yet..

Other Possibilities: If Osweiler is off the board the Broncos will wait to draft a quarterback until the fifth round or so, perhaps looking at San Diego State’s Ryan Lindley. If A.J. Jenkins is still available at this spot the Broncos should select him over Osweiler.

    I’m not sure they go with Osweiler.  The Broncos are in the “win it now” phase and don’t have the luxury of wasting a pick on a developmental player.  I would be happy with the rest of your draft though.  I like Mike Martin a lot.

     for some reason i just cant see osweiler lasting until we pick in the third, in fact i can see him gone by our second round pick. 

    here’s a quandry, what if we pick a dt in the first round- say brockers… and we get to our pick and another one is there that we had our eye on at 25… say someone like reyes is still there?  double down on dt?

    I would not disagree with any of your picks, but I also think that if you are looking for a dark horse in the 4-6 rounds,   Bobby Wagner, the LB from Utah might be a possibility.  especially if they trade down to get two picks in the 2nd.   I also like the Wolfe pick, I think he is going to be a good player, maybe better than Stills or Worthy.

     Opps, return key error.  I also think that there is wisdom in Jebow’s thoughts on the QB.  If they have a chance to get a good DB in there, that is a real possibility.  depends on how they view the future.  Can’t wait to see what happens, I have no idea. Last year I picked 1 name, Rahime Moore, and got him in the wrong round, ( pure luck) so what do I know

    Great read and interesting choices! . . . Martin at #120 is a real eye-popper . . . might think of taking him at #108.

    I really like Bobby Wagner and I was thinking about slotting him too.

    I do love Martin.

    You never see him fall on the ground, his center of balance is amazing.
