The Denver Broncos have reportedly worked out another quarterback. This time however, it’s not a free agent veteran but rather a rookie which will be available in the NFL Draft later this month. NFL.com reports that the Broncos worked out Arizona State University quarterback Brock Osweiler.
Osweiler is a large quarterback, measuring in at 6′ 7″ and veteran talent scout Gil Brandt of NFL.com reportedly suggests that his performance on the Arizona State pro day was impressive enough to suggest that the quarterback could work his way back into the later portion of the first-round of the draft.
The Broncos need to start thinking about finding a possible quarterback of the future despite signing veteran Peyton Manning last month. Denver has signed free agent Caleb Haine, a questionable move and currently has Adam Weber on the roster. Neither of these quarterbacks are a long term answer for the Broncos. Broncos officials were seen at the pro day of Oklahoma State QB Brandon Weedon as well last month.
In 2011, Osweiler threw for over 4,000 yards with 26 touchdowns and just 13 interceptions in his first full year as a starter.
