2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Brock Osweiler, QB, Arizona State
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.
